........or maybe do they work at all?

Now we've finished the Oxford applications and the Cambridge pool has almost finished just wondered which works best.

Having been through Oxford process I had a feeling Cambridge pooling was better but I'm not so sure now - having read the assorted comments on here.

My conclusion is that there are plenty of people in the two unis trying hard to make creaking systems work. But both need change.

Cambridge pool sounds a nightmare and inefficient. Can't say for Oxford 'cept sciences but the system for Chemistry works. Basically everyone gets looked at by more than their college and 10% of all places are held back as open offers eg you get a place but the college is determined when you have your results and it's clear where there are slots for you. Think most subjects do something a bit like this nowadays.

cambridge pool is a complete lottery.... that comes from people who have actually been involved in the system before.
