A lower second class, or 2:2 degree.
Inspired by South African Desmond Tutu.
Claims about the term 'tutu
' are inherently redundant (2:2 <-- duh).
Many claim to have invented the term, the truth is multiple people invented it at different times, in different places and continue to do so believing they are the first.
In the UK, the 'Desmond' is part of a logical sequence using well-known figures:
First - Geoff
(Geoff Hurst, footballer)
2:1 - Billy
(Billy Gunn, wrestler)
2:2 - Desmond
(Desmond Tutu, bishop)
Third - Thora
(Thora Hird, actress)
You get nothing for a fail.
"Mike's probably getting a Desmond, Bill a Thora, and Phil needs a Billy or above to get into Kings."
