    For me it seems easier that students can go to these universities based on the classification they get in there degree, rather then getting the required a-level results. (i was just wondering if this is true) or does the university only grant admission to students that have gotten there degree from another top university in the country?. Currently i am on track to obtain a first class degree and my main issue is if the university i go to will effect the way my application is looked at?

    Masters admissions rarely take account of A levels. their admission standards are based on undergraduate degree grades, references, and other items such as interviews, research proposal, written work etc. A levels describe the level of academic achievement aged 18 on leaving school and aren't really relevant when you've spent a further 3 years in education.

    I'm wondering if they put any priorities in which universities the applicant gets the undergraduate from?for example would they priorities students from the better of the universities which require high a level grades for entry

    They don't 'prioritise', but some courses are clearly more rigorous than others, some references will come from stronger, better reputed academics etc. They are looking for quality in all aspects.

    The undergraduate university is not an especially important factor.
