    I know it will vary from firm to firm but I was hoping someone could give me some idea on the following questions:

    Is it known for people to get a job offer with a 2.2 or 3rd?
    What is a usual starting salary?

    think 2:2 would be ok.. doubtful on 3rd mind! Would all depend on how the rest of your CV looks and competitiveness of the other candidates.

    Think average starting wage is often low 10s i think. I know a top 20 firm were offering 13.5k for the first year on their grad scheme

    I wasn't expecting it to be that low. That wage makes teaching look attractive

    Bear in mind that the firm will be sponsoring you through your training course (paying for tuition and giving you paid study leave), and most likely paying for your first sitting of each exam paper - this is worth several thousand in itself.

    i guess so, and i feel that there would be more scope to develop through a small firm compared to that of a much larger one.

    The very small starting salary is a massive put off still tho.

    if you think about it though you can double your salary in 3 years. When you are chartered you can get £30k easy!

    Ive heard the training package is supposed to cost around £5k!!!
