This just caught my eye, and I wondered since when did companies start asking for (minimal) UCAS points and how unusual it was, indeed is it going to become the standard in days to come?

2:1 expected degree and 300 UCAS points (across 3 A-Levels)

Organisational Surveys and Insight

2:2 expected degree and 280 UCAS points (across 3 A-Levels)

Start date for the Intern Programme will be the beginning of July 2013

Not seen that but quite interesting!

perhaps they are saying that they want a 2:1 / 2:2 from a uni that required decent UCAS score to get in ... but can't actually say that in the ad?

there is some postgrad thing.. is it law? that requires specific UCAS points (I think)

It's a slightly more objective way of doing "good degree from good university". 300 UCAS points is 3 Bs. So it means "Upper second from a course that requires 3 Bs to get into". It's a shade more transparent than "Upper second from a vague list of universities that the HR department arbitrarily like" or "Upper second from the universities the MD applied to in 1978".

I thought it was all down to being good-looking.
Always worked for me. :wink:

Applicant sex, applicant physical attractiveness, type of rater (120 students and 105 professional employment interviewers) and the type of job were manipulated experimentally in a 2 times 2 × 2 times 2 design. Physical attractiveness of job candidates had the broadest influence on employment decisions. There was no main effect for applicant sex, but professional interviewers were biased in favour of female applicants while student raters were not. Also, as expected, professional interviewers rated job applicants less leniently than students did.
