    No, everybody else will have 70%+ so there is no point in applying, for anything, anywhere, ever.

    Above is a joke (in case you didn't know).

    68 = 2.1 = meets entry requirement

    I know that... But 2.1 is just the minimum requirement. The actual candidates' level may vary. Is there any fact file telling about the average grade of all the candidates?

    Whether there is or not you will still apply regardless, correct?

    Typically for Audit/Tax the big 4 don't care about your academics so long as they meet the required standard. They're more interested in your soft skills etc.

    Some areas of consulting / corp finance may be a bit more picky about your academics, I guess because less positions to fill and big oversupply of candidates.

    Which area are you applying for?
