gezzz this is what we get from these silly university prospectuses.... they up the entry grades? lol well i guess its just the same as before, most students in Cass do have a good enough grades in average. But remember grades are grades, they get you the application form for IB banks (rest is up to you).
And to be honest really stop fighting over which is better BIF or IFRM.
Ok i know some have swiched but think it in this perspective first:
1. Are you into trading more? maybe IFRM suits you more in that case, more specialised that areas like derivatives, investment markets etc.
2. Want more broader Investment banker road? then perhaps BIF for you as it has more to do with Corporate Finance, like half way of IFRM and Business Studies i feel, but you can choose what to specialise in.
Theres is no right or wrong. IBs don't really care what degree you do these days as long as you are good enough for them.
And if you are good enough, you don't need to switch, you can study the other areas you don't study in your course yourself. think wider, not just degrees but on the broader perspective. Maths or not both requires maths. although IFRM maybe more specific, again its up to you what electives you choose.
