    Fine, I know it is very shallow but I need to know in general what sort of capabilties these grads have in general. What would I need to do to reach the same sort of level?
    There is no such thing as the perfect graduate. Each role requires different skills and attributes. For some dribbling skills are more important, for others it's handling. But generally all require teamwork, work rate, leadership, and decisions.

    I don't understand the question. Are you saying that, although you did the IB, you're not going to a good university? In which case, are you asking whether employers will snigger at you for not going to somewhere good, even though you had the IB? If so, no, they won't

    Basically how intelligent are the IB grads in the front office? Basically what unis do they mainly go to?
    I mean I have got quite mediocre results compared to IB students. But I am developing fast intellectually. I have a place to do a good degree at an average uni as of September and am currently on a gap year. Basically, because my university is average (not Russell Group), I don't know if I'm capable, however I am thinking if I go on to do a Master's at a top uni, would that be enough to show I am intellectually on the same level as IB grads?

    Also don't say I have no chance of getting the position, getting the position is not the problem for me let's just say. I just need to show I can be intellectually competent.
    Thanks.

    Not Russell Group =/= average university.

    wishful thinking... getting the position is a tough process, even some of the most capable students from 'target unis' struggle.

    And in my opinion, each manager still has to put a weight on potential ability vs. current ability.
