The Importance of getting a 2.1

Most employers require a 2.1 degree, but this is now changing.

Minimum Academic Requirements for the UK’s Top Employers in 2014

Based on High Fliers research, more than four-fifths of the UK’s leading companies now require their graduate applicants to meet minimum academic standards. Some 70 percent of organisations insist on a 2.1 degree, one in six employers require at least a 2.2 degree, and over a quarter specify a minimum UCAS tariff for candidates, typically in the range of 260 to 340 (equivalent to ‘BCC’ to ‘AAB’ at A-level).

They are after the preeminent, astute, and multifarious, having come to realise that the correlation between superior academic grades and business success is not necessarily strong.
