    I used to think looks and intelligence kinda went hand in hand.

    On one side you had the well-settled rich kids who were slim and wore nice clothes and ended getting a 2:1 or above. And then you had the fat loners that couldn't afford anything and scraped through their exams.

    But that was at Oxford. And most people were in the former category and very few in the latter category.

    Out in "the real world" I am coming across so many good-looking girls that are just thick. I can't physically fake enough laughter anymore. I don't find jokes about "exes" and little immature anecdotes funny AT ALL. I physically can't stand most of the good-looking girls I meet. They are so insanely superficial. And then the interesting girls are mostly pretty unattractive.

    So what does a guy do
    Any luck after your date from the other night mate?

    And only in PACES does Cambridge do badly but thats because they used to take in LOADS of medics and lose all their best ones to oxford. Now they don't. So they'll come up a bit soon.

    If you want to leave Medicine and do a job in the city. You are not going to get anywhere with a medical degree that isn't UCL/Imperial/Oxbridge.
    Lol, Cambridge grads actually have the highest PACES pass rate at the moment: http://www.gmc-uk.org/education/25496.asp

    Both are signals of good genetics well they used to be these days its difficult to tell. They are signals of good genetics thus these are more likely to be passed down as darwins theory suggests. Intelligence as it increases probability of survival and thus reproduction beauty as it increases probability of reproduction. Thus a correlation in the likelihood of these characteristics being passed down together is likely to be seen bear in mind its not limited to just these characteristics this is an extreme over simplification. Have you heard the term 'freak of nature' this I believe expresses the rare chance that someone is naturally intelligent but not beautiful and vice versa however these days it appears more prevalent mainly because of artificial enhancements (often difficult to do both as in study and maintain appearance with makeup) therefore (partially) explaining what you see.

    Survival of the fittest also plays a smaller role in modern societies therefore also being a factor. Further explanation of this is probably needed but would be a waste of my time.

    Inb4 someone hijacks my post.
    Yeh you're probably right. Good traits are naturally selected for.

    Well yeh that's not surprising. Basically all Oxford and Cambridge applicants are essentially the same level BUT Oxford took 150 and Cambridge took more like 275 so obviously the Oxford scores are going to be better in average. Also there used to be some prestige junkies that moved from Cambridge to Oxford and usually these were all the MVST1A+1B double firsts so that would have brought the average down too - nowadays they've stopped that.

    There is correlation. I went to a uni not so high on the league tables and the eye candy was very poor.I switched unis and eye candy is much better. Then I look at the met students near our uni and the eye candy look terrible.

    Lol do you have any credible evidence to support your pseudoscience ****? Anyone with a basic understanding of natural selection knows that it cannot be applied to a situation like this. Survival of the fittest lol... ugly dumb people aren't put out to die

    Oxbridge eye candy looks like someone took a dump on some expired candy. Imperial eye candy is basically all asian dudes. There's either no, or negative, correlation here, exceptions notwithstanding.

    Never said I did, that was just a simple hypothesis I put together. Do you have any knowledge of how science works? Your very welcome to carry out studies on my behalf as I cannot at this moment. Until then its an untested hypothesis and you can't dispute it. Please cry somewhere else.

    This is why some aspects of evolution and natural selection I dont understand. i have never IQ tested a female to facilitate coitus, allot of us just go out get drunk and shag whoever is willing - even if very below par. When my **** needs to get itself away; it needs to get itself away, regardless of what my brain is telling me because my brains inebriated.

    I'm gorgeous and highly intelligent btw.

    It's not always girls. I look like ass but they tell me I'm clever.
