    An interesting rumour: although Cambridge has a higher proportion of state school students, on measures that are often thought to be better indicators of student background (i.e. POLAR and ACORN) then Oxford is in the lead.

    Though I've got no idea why that would be, it does fit that the two might not be correlated: e.g. a number of my Oxford friends when to private schools, but on scholarship.
    Tabs get private school scholarships too

    But would be interesting to see any data on that.

    On the Free School Meal measure neither do well but that's probably more an indictment of pre-university education than Oxbridge per se.

    How do you know they didn't enquire about it at the time and were politely told "no"?
    Someone would have blabbed.

    Considering William did end up doing a (bespoke) course at Cambridge anyway the point is moot.
