I just wanted to query, basically, my friend graduated from Birmingham University two years ago with a 2.1 (61). However, she has since gained substantial experience as a paralegal and advocate and has a seriously strong CV with lots of ECs.
I wanted to know how much academics plays a part for scholarships, I know it probably is a big factor but isn't the interview a chance for them to assess based on overall performance as opposed to just grades?
It's hard to tell without knowing more details about the CV. What she has is probably enough to get her an interview, but interview performance is usually the outright determining factor in scholarship awards.
