    What I mean is, if you finish first and second year with a ridiculous percentage mark of like 95%, would it help to get into IB (while in third year)? Or would it be no more effective than "just" getting a first...

    Infact, while we are here, does it improve job prospects in general?

    Apologies for the abysmal and grammatically incorrect wording in the thread title.

    So on your CV you are proposing to list out every single exam and coursework submitted over the course of 3 years and the corresponding percentage result?

    No one has time for that. 1 or 2.1, that's all they care about. Though some of the more selective programs may want to know marks for each year, or a particular module if it's a popular course.

    They hardly care if you have a 1st or a 2.1, let alone what percentage point you have within a first. You can fill your CV up with much more useful information.

    Nomura say they like academic awards on their website.

    Thats probably to compensate for the lack of awards won by them

    So, even being top of your year wouldn't get you any Brownie points from potential employers?

    Not really from what I heard. Its just the grade, work experience and any extra curricular activities that is consider more important. Its benefits you more for stuff like doing postgraduate study such as Masters degree and PHD where there look on your module grades and information on that as it proves you academic capabilities.
