    well Cambridge is above Oxford in the league tables in general, and for specific subjects
    But Oxford is beaut too 👌🏽 both unis are a dream to get into.
    But well, apparently according to OP... Manchester > Cambridge
    It goes like this, actually: Manchester > Oxford > London Met > Cambridge.

    Wouldn't actually be surprised if that's what the league tables say one day, given how unreliable they are

    Who gives a crap about boring student life and fun location, its the education and career prospects that matter mate.
    student life in Cambridge is actually amaZing, I know someone who goes there, and on open days the undergrads are so down to earth and 'normal'. 😍 But I guess it depends on what OP finds a good student life. Obviously everyone at Cambridge is very clever, and highly dedicated to study whereas universities like OB/ Sheffield Hallam... Well 😅😂

    Bet you regret not seeing this thread sooner, if you had, you'd have firmed Manchester instead of that dump Cambridge.

    Manchester more respected than Cambridge? What are you smoking?

    And I'm sure a lot of people see the old architecture and general culture as very interesting.

    Plus, it's one of the top 10 universities in the world.

    Thanks for your highly educated opinion, intelligent con. I'll promptly decline my Cambridge offer for mathematics, Manchester it is.

    Edit: couldn't have done it without you, thank you ever so much.
    Don't you sill have to clear STEP? Isn't that like a much more difficult hurdle to clear than just getting a few As and A*s...

    Cambridge is in the Russell group? Pfft, like their research is any good
    Apparently their alumni discovered the structure of DNA, gravity, hydrogen, evolution, insulin structure...

    Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    Also your profile

    You list your academic performance very proudly in the about me section but then proclaim "Who cares?" directly underneath in "Academics". Unless this has been done for ironic laughs, you should probably change it.

    Also you haven't stated which college. Is it not a good one?

    I didn't say I was getting in, did I? That'd be contrary to what I think.

    I don't particularly care about it.

    It seems too absurd to think that it could be not obvious to anyone, but I would like to check that people got my sarcasm there..

    Well your profile directly contradicts itself lol. You should just decide ... Yes I want to show off I'm going to Cambridge / No I want people to see how smart I just by what I say. I'd go for the latter. Although when I got in I went for the former. And Kings is a nice college ,you should add it to the info.

    think you're missing the point , essentially what we're getting at here is maybe at cambridge you're not going to get a load of mandy inside of you, snort some crushed up pain pills, have a big night out and come back and smash the ket, and when it comes down to it - isn't that the REAL student experience?

    Yeah I thought so lol
    But I'm always wary of these things..
    In fairness though Cambridge has had a big head-start being so old and all. I'm sure Wolverhampton and the like will catch up
