    I have to agree.

    I'm so sick of hearing people 'ironically quoting' this in reference to their own gap years.

    I actually know a rah (state-educated, not private, but still as close to a rah as I've met from round here) who has a TVU offer and is thinking quite seriously about taking it up :awesome:

    Well, what's a "rah" for one thing?

    Depends on what you mean by "crap unis". But I know that there is still a reasonable intake of privately educated students at Nottingham Trent (one university you mentioned) and certainly Oxford Brookes. Some of these, as well as their state school counterparts, will fit the "rah" stereotype.

    The one thing I have learn is that a lot of students on here over emphasis the 'rahness' of their uni in a bid to make it sound more prestigious (cough*** Leeds*** cough**** Exeter***)

    Forget peoples opinions on here, if you want to find out which unis have the most private school students, and are most middle class and 'posh', just check the readily available official statistics from HESA. You can also check the leavers destinations on the top public school's websites. All decent unis will have some private school rah types.

    According to the HESA data, which is reprinted in the Sunday Times Guide very year, the unis with the lowest state school intake (top 10) are

    Oxford
    Cambridge
    Durham
    Bristol
    St Andrews
    Imperial
    UCL
    Newcastle
    Nottingham
    LSE

    Apparently the most middle class students (calculated by those with the most students from social classes 1, 2 ,3) are (top 10)

    Oxford
    Cambridge
    Bristol
    Durham
    Edinburgh
    Imperial
    LSE
    Bath
    Warwick
    Nottingham

    Therefore those students saying that Exeter and Leeds are 'full of rahs everywhere' are exaggerating a bit, or perhaps the smaller number of rahs are just more visible and vocal.

    And before anyone accuses me of making up the stats as per usual, Im sitting with the sunday times guide next to me, and you can check the hesa website for yourself.
