Old boys - by a Neck
University of Warwick economists analysed 100,000 students leaving the old universities in 1993.
The wide-ranging survey also revealed state school pupils are 33 per cent more likely to get a first-class degree than independent school counterparts. A report last week from Cardiff University, which used the same raw data, gave a figure of 20 per cent.
The research also showed Oxbridge students went into jobs that paid 8 per cent more than than those taken by graduates from the other universities.
