This is something which I have been struggling find a definite answer for. League tables seem to fluctuate too much and the number of criteria that add up to give the score is just stupid. So I figured going by employment figures, starting salaries and typical offers might be better. Bristol's typical AAA offer is 2 grades below what universities such as Manchester ask for, and 1 grade below the likes of Warwick. Is there really such a difference between these universities? From what I've read the average starting salary is 25,000 which is high for physics courses, and employment rates 6 months after graduation hover around 90% which is also good.
Where then does the gap in the offer requirements come from? Are Durham/Bath graduates with say, a 2:1 more favourably looked upon than Bristol graduates with the same grades? Bristol are also the only uni to give me a reduced offer due to the ranking of the college I go to. Why is this?
How well-respected is a Physics degree from Bristol
