Thanks for replying. Yes, my fault I completely see that those degree provide logical reasoning, but I always thought that as it's (obviously) so heavily numbers focused, they would want a degree where you're required to use maths skills, which they don't. If they desired transferable skills, why if you did a degree in say, English, History or any humanities etc., is your degree called effectively useless? Because then it wouldn't be, if you could use those to go into accounting? Not arguing btw - just curious!
If Oxbridge or Russell Group doesn't incur huge advantages, why are people so encouraged to go to them and why do so many of their staff come from those backgrounds? It seems like you hardly see anyone that went to a lower ranked uni like Hertfordshire for example, maybe because they didn't so well at A-Level but have a first class degree, in positions at those companies? It feels like they're a little out of reach if you didn't go to even a top 20 uni.
Sorry, not having a go. Just feeling a little disheartened like I made the wrong decisions in and feel limited because of where and what I chose to study as I didn't;t know what I wanted to do at the time.
