    I would rather get a 2:1 from reading than a 2:2 from oxford, employers now set the bar at 2:1.

    I think they do and they look at all your individual results - if you had maintained a high 2:2 and looked as if you could push it up to a 2:1 they might be more lenient.
    Are you going to Reading or are you just using it as an example?
    Okay so do you mean that with employers it's now really only down to the mark you get and not the institute you get it from?

    I am going to York.

    I am saying that no matter where you go, if you get less than a 2:1 for Law it is worthless and hence I would rather get a 2:1 from a worse institute than a 2:2 at a better one.

    However, the best Law firms usually only take Russell Group unis, so I would want to stick within that group.

    Oh I see. In all honesty I'm not actually too sure about how strict employers are for law and how the whole employment system works so I have to just agree
