    Since I'm not going Oxbridge can someone tell me how much a Dustbin man earns?
    In Birminham you could earn roughly 50,000 to 100,000 a year if you're lucky, **** knows why. Also, become a train driver and earn 60,000 a year for.... Sitting on your arse all day

    wtf when i was 18 i got a warwick offer of AA at advanced higher with no interview. Didn't apply to Cambridge but it wouldve been interview, A1A1A1 and 1's in STEP I imagine.

    Has it changed?
    Now for Warwick it's A*AA plus 1 in STEP or A*A*A plus 2 in STEP
    for Cambridge it's A*A*A plus STEP (the website doesn't say if it's 1 or 2)
    So yeah they are pretty similar

    I really hope you're being sarcastic, because the best maths uni is Warwick
    Cambridge is obviously better for maths than Warwick, lol.

    I'm an Oxford post-interview reject for engineering, and I am inferior in MANY different ways, but not because of that. I think.

    Hell no. Cambridge and Oxford are not the best universities, their staff hardly make any scientific contributions, they are only famous and said to be " the best universities in the world" because they are really old and have made prestigious contributions to science in the past and also because famous people like Charles Darwin and Issac Newton have studied there. universities like Durham , Nottingham, Manchester, Warwick and Bath are the universities that are doing cutting-edge research and teaching.

    All else being equal, yes of course. The exceptions being people who get onto a course at another uni that is better than the Oxbridge equivalent.

    To be fair you don't really get a choice in the matter...

    Yes if you are heavily into education and conventional careers, with obvious special conditions like people without the money to go (if this happens) or people where another uni is actually better for their subject.

    But yeah, I'd say you're inferior if you're from England and do maths at a lesser uni than Cambridge.
    That's why you can't get laid, perhaps? :giggle:

    maybe bro but i think it has more to do with my mental illness tbh which has destroyed my life

    anyway i did say that you're inferior if you're heavily into education and go to a lesser uni. obv if you're not into education then it doesn't matter

    Excuses, excuses. I'm an emotional/mental wreck and that didn't stop me.

    I didn't go to Oxbridge and still secured a training contract with one of the top law firms. And not going to Oxridge certainly didn't make me feel 'inferior' lol.

    go **** yourself you absolute **** I have severe and enduring mental ill health. I have schizophrenia you prick.
    Boohoo, that doesn't give you the right to call people inferior just because they didn't go to Oxford or Cambridge.



    And 'schizophrenia' isn't the reason why you can't get laid, either, it's your annoying attitude.

    No. Oxbridge just wasn't the best for my subject. So I didn't apply by choice
    Which subject is this?

    That includes people that never applied
    Inferior in what sense?
    At A levels?
    Academically?
    In life?
    As a human being?
    As a partner or parent?
