    These are the tiers:

    Target (c.70-80% of intakes)
    Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Imperial and Warwick

    'Strong' Semi-target (c.12-16%)
    Durham, Nottingham, Bristol, Bath and Cass Business School

    'Regular' Semi target (c.8-12%)
    Edinburgh, St Andrews, Manchester, Exeter, Loughborough, KCL

    Shows up a lot, but generally non-target:
    Leeds, Southampton, Sheffield, York, Birmingham

    Also a fair amount of european target schools which would dilute the above percentages.

    Good list -- largely realistic. But I'd bump Manchester up. It's regarded as good as Durham and Notts in banking and finance jobs.
