But are employers really interested in this level of detail? Who cares if I got 63% in electromagnetism in second year? Surely they are not looking just for aptitude in exams, but adaptability and common sense in new situations. And how are they going to judge extra curricular activites, when some wont be anything to do with the university?

How will the university know what extra curricular activities a student does? and if he actually does them or just joined the club and went to their meet and greet drinks?

That bit sounds a bit silly.

Oh and one more point [insert long rant about how Imperial gives out fewer 2.1 and 1st then other unis here].

I graduated with a degree in Biology in 1999 and went on to become a lawyer. Even then law firms were requesting full transcripts of results (even when your degree did not relate to the area!) because too many people applying for law had a 2.1 or 1.

I guess what I am trying to say is this is nothing new!
