    Hi, I know I'm early thinking about this, but i am currently entering my final year of college and am predicted A*AA at Alevel. I am hoping to study bsc geography at either Manchester, Edinburgh or Durham. Would these qualifications leave me adequately qualified to enter a graduate scheme in firms like Deloitte or PwC? I understand there is little chance i could enter MBB sadly.

    Ps. Would Durham, Edinburgh or Manchester be more reputable for consultancy firms? And is a geography degree adequate. Sorry for the life story

    yeah, should be fine

    Big 4 the last thing that matters are your grades as long as you meet the requirements to apply

    if you pass the tests you'll instantly make it to the telephone interview/first round interview, it's pretty much all on you as individual with big 4 grad schemes and what experiences you can talk about in interviews/how you perform in interviews, E trays, presentations, group exercises etc.
