    Tons of people at my college are applying to either: Southbank, LSE or SOAS

    It would be difficult to find a person who did not apply to one of these

    wow... Haha yes I guess that is a benefit though :p:

    My school is arguably the best in my city and less than 5% of my year have oxbridge offers! :eek:
    I think a lot of it is down to the attitude of the school. My school is determined to be #1 (league tables, offers, you name it) and so puts a fair amount of pressure on those that it thinks can do well (60% of my year were guided into applying to Oxbridge). The teaching is obviously very very good too :p:

    Sunderland, Norwich and BIAD. I don't know much about Sunderland and Norwich really but BCU because the majority of my group want to stay close to home. I'm surprised how many people are choosing to stay close to home at my college.
    A couple of years ago, a lot of people I know applied to Oxbridge.

    Lot of people went for Warwick. Most got rejected I believe.

    Suprisingly only a few applied to Oxbridge. Think about 9. 5 got accepted. Still, it's listed as a record in my state school :p:

    UWE and Plymouth popular here too.

    From my school last year the most popular choices were Nottingham, Southampton, Oxford, Durham, York and Exeter. Nottingham won hands down, with 14 of us firming offers. 3 of us actually got in on results day, I dropped out 2 months later. Haha.
    Why did you drop out?

    I was in Southampton and there was a clear regional bias - Southampton, Portsmouth, Exeter, Cardiff Oxford and London Unis. Popular ones outside the region were Warwick and Durham.
    EDIT: Oh and Bristol.

    I go to a totally **** state school and people rarely apply to Uni's over the 50 mark,if they apply at all.
    Once every blue moon a genius passes through and applies to Oxbridge,but this year I was the only one to apply anything over about top 40ish.
