I don't care what data you have, I assume you believe that actual real experience matters more than qualification? I'm telling you that I'm an actual engineer at these big tech companies, and I actually do hiring at these companies, and that I know precisely how candidates are assessed, and that I also have worked both in the UK and in aboard, and have proved as much. So yeah reject it if you want, like I said it makes no difference to me.
You don't even need me anyway, look at any software engineering role opening at Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Meta, or basically any company in the S&P500, tell me how many roles you see that don't have "Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or relevant technical discipline" as the first line in the job requirements. It's not rocket science.
