    Does anyone know, if I've been rejected by a university, can I then apply to another university through UCAS even though my five choices have been used up? I heard something along those lines and wondered if it was before the 15th Jan I could put in application to another uni in place of the one that rejected me? Thanks

    I think it might be that you re rejected or have withdrawn from all five by march then you can apply to another or something, so unless you applied less than a week ago then I don't think so- sorry!

    I think Return of the Jedi (I'm rewatching that tonight/tomorrow night so I'll see ), but all of the original trilogy are equally amazing. Ep II and III I enjoyed more than I expected from reviews - Phantom Menace was probably the weakest, but still a good watch. Thank you for the recommendation, I'm completely in love with the series! :awesome:

    Bloody Jar Jar Binks though...

    Really? I watched the first one some time during Christmas and was bored out of my mind. My brother said that the first one is boring but the other ones are great so I think I might give the other movies a go.

    Do you mean the first original or the first prequel? The first prequel was the worst. I did enjoy it but I doubt I would as much on a second viewing. The drag race was too long IMO. :]

    Yeah it was the first prequel, the phantom menace. To be honest it's just me being harsh I'll probably give it another go after mocks . My brother is a huge fan of Star wars/Star trek, even his Christmas present was based on Star wars. Don't know why but I shall soon find out :P.

    No letter.

    I do think the original statement was unfair but if you see the article I linked it shows that sometimes poor state schools leave too many gaps in applicants' knowledge and they just can't make them an offer, even if they do have great potential. Compare this to, say, a leading boarding school you will see how big an impact education can have, and though Cambridge try to contextualise this they still take an overwhelming proportion of privately educated students.
    I'd argue that TSR is an invaluable resource and a very potent equaliser, at least for maths, tbh. :beard:

    I think maths goes above and beyond just private vs state though. It's about nurturing talent from a young age. This is the main problem with the education for maths; unless you are very, very talented there's no way you can catch up at the age of 16/17 (when people start A-Levels is normally when they develop a deeper interest) to people who have been exposed and taught this stuff since the age of 12/13. I think there's this erroneous delusion that maths is all about natural ability just as there is a delusion that your education in maths should revolve around your high school teacher (when it should be mainly from textbooks and other published work).

    (I may be talking less about STEP there ^ but my point is that you can't just decide you like maths at the age of 16 and be on a level playing field at 18 with people with the same "talent" as you who started at 13. Whereas I'd argue for most other subjects this is possible.)

    Also I think that private vs. state is a bad generalisation (I'm not attacking your post personally here). There are definitely state schools which are as good - if not better than the average private school. I think the main distinction is that private schools are rarely awful whilst some state schools rarely send anyone in the year to a Russel group Uni. For Cambridge I think the private success rate is something like 31% whilst the maintained success rate is about 27% - which I would call acceptable.
