The UCAS points employers require for their graduate job vacancies are getting higher, research has shown.
According to The Graduate Market in 2013 survey of 100 graduate recruiters by High Fliers Research, a quarter of graduate employers include minimum UCAS tariffs in their graduate job specifications.
In 2013, these minimums range from 260 to 340 points. In 2012, the UCAS requirements for graduate jobs were more typically between 240 and 320 points.
Recent research from the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) suggests that more than a third (35.3%) of recruiters currently set UCAS minimums for graduate jobs.
The majority of the graduate jobs posted on Inside Careers list minimum UCAS requirements.
