I always see you around threads complaining about something or other...

You hate swear words
You hate simple phrases like get bent or that sucks
Your sarcasm is weird
You're rude in a weird way

etc. etc.
And?

Not very important. Our year was seen as very successful with one to Cambridge, one medic and one dentist. They hadn't got anyone in to Oxbridge or medical/dental school for yonks.

I am around people who are going to Oxbridge and people who have their hearts set on Leeds Met... to most people it doesn't make a difference (does to me, though.)

I used to think UCL was quite well known throughout the country, but having seen the number of people on the UCL part of this forum from outside London who have been met with confusion when they've explained they're off to UCL, I've realised I was wrong.

Oh well. Are you starting this year?
Yes- fingers crossed.

It is amongst employers. I went to a similar type of school, but I don't think anyone considered UCL a "lesser university". It was just somewhere you went if you were rejected by Oxbridge- but were still very good.

I went to Westminster, the university you were planning on going to was an extention of your penis.

It's a description. You sound quite stuck up, but it's ok, men like it, so keep going. Dealbreaker's your man.

Not very, but that's reflected in the grades (where E is what we aim for).

Not necessarily (she could just go to a very good private -- as opposed to public -- school), but, yes, it is incredibly likely.
Errrr private & public schools are the same thing (ie: fees have to be paid).

Out of sheer curiosity, what subject at Oxford were you rejected from?

Not really. Public schools are private schools, but not all private schools are public schools. To be a classed as a public school a school has to be a member of a group called the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference. Such schools are more exclusive and tend to have better facilities than the average private school; subsequently the fees also tend to be higher!

The term public school is generally used now in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and sometimes Scotland to refer to any school that is a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference: see the article Independent school (UK) for that sense of the term. The schools and their representative associations prefer the more inclusive term "independent schools", but common usage and the news media in England often refer to them by the traditional name of "public schools".

From wiki.
