    well a ucas point offer is a joke it doesnt say what subjects you have to study, you could apply for history, drop it, do french maths and biology get AAA and get in, or you could get in on duke of edders or perhaps music grades anything. ucas offfers are rubbish
    That's very nice.

    But...King's doesnt accept UCAS points for Maths, so why should we care what you think of it?

    Universities! Oxford and Cambridge. There is no uni called "Oxbridge"

    But back to my point

    BTEC isnt really a joke is it, Its just more specialised and less exam orientated. Its not there to keep the kids of the street it takes just as much hard work as an ALevel in a similar subject, its there for people who dont wana study random subjects in 6th form, people that woudl rather study a specific subject such as Comp Sci

    are you for real?! you do A levels to get the skills to specialise, if anybody did comp sci without A level maths its stupid, its not specialising its lying to peoepl that they have the same grades, how are core subjects random? why dont oxbirge accept BTEC's why do they only accept A levels and IB, i mean its "equivelent" right? your equally prepared.

    For someone who seems to know so much about Math's courses, he doesn't seem to know how to count

    ok i'm not even going to bother arguing whether IC is better than kings or vice versa

    the point is, yes, tktaylor, you got it correct! that its rubbish that kings is accepting people with BBC/BCC/whatever it is into their math courses!!

    kings should try improving their math courses- there are courses at kings that are really not up to standard.

    Doing BSc Comp SCi with a BTEC in Comp Sci isnt stupid is it?

    I was wondering why Imperial College's prestigious mathematics department, with their incredibly high offers that surpass all others, didn't teach him to count to two!

    You actually believe him?

    This guy went on a rant about King's accepting UCAS points for Math's when a two-second look at the prospectus would show you they don't, he doesnt seem to understand Btec, and he can't count to two.

    Never trust a troll .

    Still, he's quite cute :rolleyes:.

    actually i agree with the fellow above, there all rubbish, oxbridge is the ONLY good university
    Yet more and more Oxbridge students find themselves without jobs after graduation, maby because these students like yourslef think that reputation is everything and therefore do nothing else but work to get into and then get a degree from Oxbridge. Like I said before a uni's reputation isn't everything. If all you are good for is work and therefore don't have any social attributes etc then an employer is going to be less likely to offer you a job than say someone from Kings who is fairly smart but also have great social attributes such as TEAM working skills etc.

    Havent read all this thread, but when people say its rep is falling, that is simply based on what the Times/Guardian rank it at, however having spoke to various employers they still rate it as a top 10 uni. If it had a Economics/Business dept, it would have been one of my top choices.
