With so many collages boasting a high number of state school entrants, it would seem that this balance has been re-adjusted by "ignoring" people with just as good grades from public schools, where, lets face it we still have to write the same things in the exams to get the grades!
It's not about getting a quota of some group into Oxbridge. It's about making sure that the people who deserve to get in, do get in.
What evidence do you have to suggest that people who are "just as good" from public schools are losing out places because of inferior applicants from state schools? It sounds like a rather paranoid unfounded idea.
I never said public school exams are magically easier, i'm saying you had access to better resources, better teaching, so found it easier to get the top grades.
