How will my previous university experience count towards my GCB/ GDB application?

For those applicants that have previously undertaken university studies, the achievement of good grades is advantageous.  However, we recognise that in many cases the degrees were undertaken a decade or more ago when different priorities may have existed, and that past performance during a different stage of life is not necessarily a good predictor of future performance at a graduate level.  We also recognise that different education systems recognise different grade levels as constituting ‘good’ or even ‘excellent’ performance.  In essence, past performance is considered as part of the ranking process, but the longer ago the degree was undertaken, the less weighting it is given.
