Semi Targets for IB?

Hi,

Was wondering about the semi targets for BB IB firms.
How do Bristol, Manchester, Durham, KCL stack up against the usuals.

Thanks,

Obviously people's views differ both on which are unis are targets/semi-targets as well as the utility of thinking in this way, but I would say the general consensus is that Oxbridge, LSE, imperial, UCL and Warwick are the targets. Semi-target are Bath, Bristol, Nottingham, Durham and Kings.

Worth remembering this is the broad consensus view, and that you could definitely have more competitive candidates at non-targets than targets even, this is just based on averages.

Agreed, someone doing physics at Bath or Exeter with A*AA is probably a better candidate than geography at UCL/Warwick AAB
