    We had an Oxford talk today. It seems amazing, but only for the right kind of person, if that makes sense?

    I don't think I'd be able to take it. Conflicting zones of interest. Plus, I'm not made of money, and I don't socalize with what's considered to be the "right," sort of people, so I think it'd be torture.

    No, I didn't mean it like that. Even if you are a genius they still might not take you. If you're a genius with no passion for your subject then what's the point in applying because you probably won't get accepted?

    Yeah, definitely.
    I think I'd love it for arts courses such as English Literature, but the science is a bit too full on for me thank you :tongue: The tutorial thing sounds immensely useful though. I don't know if other unis have tutorials or not?

    you hardly have to be a genius to go to oxford. plenty of people on this thread could get into oxbridge it would seem.

    Kate "Oh, my God! Give me an Oscar for **** sake! I'm getting sick and tired of waiting!" Winslet has gone WAY, WAY, WAY down in my estimations. I used to think she was cool, and that the Oscars don't mean a thing to her. Guess not...
    Poor Kate, damned if she does, damned if she doesn't.

    And not caring about the Oscars doesn't make you cool......

    I'd love to go to Cambridge and not Oxford, and since my mum won't let out of London guess thats a no for me..

    But I can see that plenty of people on here have really good grades, and A PASSION for what they do, so whose stopping them from getting a place? :dontknow:
