    Oh here we go again... OK so you didn't make it to Oxford, you're going to Warwick and Imperial and UCL, that is fantastic! People would kill for that! More importantly this is what life is all about, its about picking yourself up and sadly its having a negative effect on you and you need to change that negative into something positive! You need to show Oxford what they missed!!! Just keep imagining how amazing it will be so say to people that I got 4A*s not even 1A* 4!!! Oxford do not need any A*s so you're already ahead of the game. If it matters so much apply for a postgrad and show them how far your have come after being rejected and that you did not fall into some sort of depression because the art of rejection is being able to pick yourself up again; a life long lesson! Learn it now while ur young and not when ur 30 and apply for your dream job!!! Also always remember that there are people who are a lot worse than you so brush it off and start afresh!

    UCL is also known world over and is ahead of Oxford in the league tables (international ones!)

    it truly does hurt when you've wanted something for so long and you idolise it. and then its gone. with a letter, forever.
    Damn I empathise. Went outside to read mine so I didn't have to listen to my mum yelling at me to open it. Sat there in the snow and opened the letter and it was so pitiful.

    But look. It really doesn't matter. Perhaps you deserved to get in, and if you did I'm sure you'll end up there or at a better place for postgrad. (Or you'll do something even better than further study after you graduate.)

    What part of the concept of reductio ad absurdum don't you understand?
