    I actually know someone that has got into cambridge for maths and we live in one of the poorest boroughs in the UK and we also go to a state school.

    Maybe you were just not good enough.

    Maybe I wasn't, who knows about the potential I had but couldn't show.

    Maybe my potential would've shown better if I was privately educated, maybe not

    we don't know answers to these questions so we might as well just accept the truth
    It's also your area.
    I mean if that person lived in a worse area than you then obv they would be first pick. After all they got accused of not taking students from poorer areas

    Off to Warwick for me

    just proves really that even if you work hard, you most likely won't get into Cambridge because you weren't privately educated :rolleyes:
    Sorry to hear that :console: Warwick's really good, I'm sure you'll have an awesome time there :yep:
