Are the A level entry requirements at law firms typically set in stone? What are the chances, for example, of a student with a first class degree from a RG university and ABB at A level getting a training contract at a firm where the requirements are AAB and a 2.1?

Depends on the firm. Many don't stick to its rigidly, others do.
Look for clarity on the policy on their website or in their brochure.
"We typically look for" means they are open minded while "must have achieved" tends to be less so.
If you are ever unsure call the firm and ask!
A lot of firms are also being more open minded if they have their contextual recruitment system. That obviously only helps if your A-level performance was proportionately higher than your peers at school/college or within your postcode.Last edited by J-SP; 04-09-2016 at 17:36.
