The difference between Russell group uni's and the others on a cv? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I currently have an offer from keele at BC, however, I could also stay at school for an extra year and possibly get two A's and a total of 4 A-levels in total ( i currently take to AS levels as a result of stupid choices at year 12). If I were to stay on I could apply for Russell group universities such as Sheffield and Birmingham. Firstly is it worth the extra year? and Secondly say two job candidates both have equal degrees and one is from Keele or Trent and the other went to Birmingham or Sheffield would this make a difference in the job application process?

    Thanks for your time and im sorry for the length


    we watched a programme in sociology, that said that employers only hire graduates from russell group uni's :mad2:
