    Hi Guys,

    So i'm set on applying for Vacation Schemes for next year, I'm a Politics and International Relations student and I've started my commercial awareness and cultural firm awareness preparation for applications already. I'm someone who is quite proactive, I've got some decent work experience and volunteer work to show firms; although my grades are hoovering around a mid to low 2:1. Basically my question is will this hold me back in applying for Magical Circle firms? I know that their websites and recruitment services say they're looking for anyone with at least a 2:1 but realistically do I stand a chance?
    Any insights would be great!

    Mid to low 2.1s are fine if your form is strong elsewhere, even for MC firms.
