From "If you didn't get all A's, then I won't read your posts" to "Well, Einstein failed, so it's alright that I did!"

Hilarious.

Graduate prospects for students at Oxford: 77.5%

Source: The Time Good University Guide

Therefore 22.5% students fail to gain a graduate job after graduating from the university of Oxford so there you go! proven
Presumably (correct me if I'm wrong) that 22.5% includes students who go on to do postgraduate work etc, which Oxford students are arguably more likely to choose than students of some other universities. The employment rate amongst Oxford graduates who _wanted_ a job immediately after graduating is probably quite a bit higher. One might also want to consider the pay scale of those 77.5% of Oxford graduates taking jobs right away compared to the pay scales of graduates of other universities. The value of a university entirely depends on what you're looking for, and judging them exclusively on immediate graduate employment prospects is as bad as judging people's opinions on whether they got all A's at A-level.

Also LivinItLarge, those tables are flawed if we are not told what their criteria is.

wait wait, what A levels did you do in your gap year? and what was your offer from cambridge and for what course and what college?
My offer wasn't based on my other A Levels so they're irrelevant really. Admittedly my situation was slightly different than others studying for a BTEC National - The National usually comprises 18 units - I ended up doing 24 out of choice as I wanted to extend my Computing knowledge/skills. The only point I was making was that Cambridge (and possibly Oxford - I'm not sure) does accept the BTEC National Diploma qualification.

Actually, Einstein did quite well in secondary school, it was just his primary teachers who didn't thing much of him.

The graduate employment rate includes students that go on to further education, I believe

Kings is pretty 'crap' for maths....that is the impression i certainly got. Their typical offer to further mathematicians is ABC and their offer to me was only a BC, and to include further maths. Also, many people said that the students/lecturers only asked the students who were there in november to consider kings as insurance, and if the uni is saying that, surely there has got to be a definite lack of morale, and does one really want to study in a department lacking enthusiasm? It would most likely have an adverse affect on the students as a result too...i'm with Tk on this one :rolleyes:

Did I mention which school he did badly in? No! so why make that comment. And I've said a million times over I used it to help prove a more than justified comment, so please don't mock

It depends how you define "better". In some subjects it probably is, in other subjects probably not.

It does have a higher graduate employment rate than all of them, though.

Surely 'better' is subjective though? It depends on your own criteria.
