    Assuming you graduated from a lower end university with a bachelor degree but it turned out to be First-class honours (1st).
    How is this then looked at by employers compared to a degree at say oxford which turned out to be Second-class honours, upper division (2:1)?

    Similarly if you decided to do a masters degree and did so from Cambridge but started out from a lower end university how would employers again look at this?
    Would they consider your masters as the main indicator?

    You'd be better off asking employers you're hoping to work for this question directly rather than asking on TSR. Most people on TSR are 17/18 year old university applicants and so don't have much insight into employer recruitment preferences (and even where they do preferences obviously vary between industries and employers).
