I went to a non-Russell group but want a job in banking, I know I won’t get onto a graduate scheme or been able to get on a graduate scheme.
For most grad schemes, you just have to meet the minimum grade requirements, after that it’s how you perform in the online tests and interview. You’ll never be successful with a negative attitude, keep
applying and the right oppurtunity will come . I went to a non russell-group average uni and even got a 2:2 but secured a job at the big4 . good luck
