    I didn't do great at A-Levels. I started putting myself together at university, I have now finished the 2nd year at rather a low tier university (Essex).

    Now I'm considering masters to help to boost my employability but I am unsure whether I can break to a good tier of masters; and if I can't, would it be beneficial to do masters at all?

    Here is my situation:
    1st year - 68%
    2nd year - 79% (at least 70% in every module)

    Is there a chance taking into account my university to get to do top tier MSc finance/economics course (i.e. Oxbridge, LSE, LBS, UCL Warwick, Imperial) ?

    Many thanks for all advice

    The uni doesn't matter. If you meet the entry requirements you'll be fine.

    With a 1st and a strong personal statement + some work experience you should be in a good position to apply to at least Warwick and UCL in my opinion.
