    Hey Guys;

    Am looking at placements this year and have noticed a lot of placements are asking for a minimum of a 2:1 or above (not a problem for me) but I am curious, if a job is asking for a 2:1 , which of the following situations is most likely?

    A. Someone is predicted a 2:1 and got Bs and As at A level
    B. Someone is predicted a First and got Cs and Ds at A level

    Which one of them is most likely going to get it?

    About 35% of graduate employers have a UCAS tariff - so in more cases than not, B, but reality is that it highly depends on the employer.

    I think many would want consistency though, so unless there was a reason for the poor a-level results, the reality is they will want someone with good grades at all stages.
