If you don't get in to Oxbridge, does it mean you are inferior? Watch

    oh go **** yourself

    seriously you are an *******. You have an appalling attitude to mental ill health considering your membership of the mental health support soc.

    Drink bleach and die.
    Why? I wasn't even talking about your mental health lol. I am talking about your attitude. Just because you went to Oxford doesn't mean you are 'better than everyone else'

    I didn't go to Oxford or Cambridge I'm a university dropout ffs so I don't have a vested interest in my opinion that if you're heavily into education, you're better than someone else who is heavily into education if you go to Oxbridge and they don't, other things equal.

    I don't care that much about education. I dropped out of uni. My main interest is my guitar.

    I honestly disagree with this. It's not like that, at all. It's not right to make people feel inferior because they didn't attend Oxford/Cambridge. But anyway, that's my opinion.

    i suppose i can partly see your point. there aren't hard and fast rules in the real world and you have to look at the individuals

    Yes well engineering as a general course at Cambridge or Oxford with specialisation later on will allow you to make way more money in your life - it's a lot more prestigious

    Imperial is good tho

    So is someone who gets into Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge with A*AA academically better than someone who gets into Imperial Engineering with 5A*s and BMO2 qualification?

    I question your fantastically progressive ideas on what people with mental illnesses should be able to do thanks to your own definitive experience, but at-least you support those poor souls who didn't make it to Oxbridge.

    That's a huge lie, as employers in this industry are well aware of the quality of the graduates that other universities produce, and generally aren't impressed by the Oxbridge title.

    ARM, for example, one of the largest UK-based technology companies, takes the vast majority of its graduate intake from Southampton.

    Don't make wild claims without actually doing some research. I'm predicted A*A*A and have firmed So'ton as it's the best place in the country for Electronic Engineering right now.

    Oh come on, do you honestly believe that people with mental health problems can't have sex/be in a relationship? Wth? Of course they can.

    Literally the same entry requirements. Plus I have no clue about the top grads, I'm just saying what my maths teacher told me
    *triggered*

    Cambridge requirements are A*A*A + 11 in STEP II and STEP III

    Warwick's easy entry requirements are A*A*A + 2 in STEP 1.

    Ask anyone who does STEP and they will tell you cambridge's much higher STEP requirements makes it much harder to get into.

    Do you have a PhD in missing the point? It's terribly arrogant and generally disgusting that you think someone with a mental illness should be able to do something just because you can, and that if they can't it's their fault. You don't need me to spell that out to you, obvious troll is obvious.
