Recently, Recruit4vets were asked by Recruitment Grapevine, our thoughts on ‘Is the need for a minimum 2:1 degree still necessary for graduates?’

As teenagers up and down the country find out if they confirm, cancel or compromise their university plans, Recruitment Grapevine looked forward to how they’ll fare upon graduation.

Last month research from the Association of Graduate Recruiters suggested that the need for a minimum 2:1 degree was decreasing: 73.8% of employers were asking for a minimum 2:1 degree in 2015, compared to 76.2% the year before. Meanwhile 16.7% required a 2:2 in 2015, up from 11.3% the year before.

Recruit4vets answered… ‘For the veterinary industry specifically, this answer is difficult to answer, simply because the way that a Veterinary Degree is measured isn’t in the traditional method. They either have a pass or fail, it only gets measured in the more traditional method if they move onto a masters. The way that a Veterinary Degree is measured isn’t in the traditional method.
