    Apparently whenever Warwick play Coventry at hockey all the guys and girls have a bunch of chants for them.

    My personal favourite:

    'Give me an E' 'E'
    'Give me a D' 'D'
    'Give me an F' 'F'
    'What have you got?'
    All: YOUR A LEVEL RESULTS!!!!1!
    I swear you cant get F at a-level?:confused:

    I think we have 'rivalry' but really it's all in the name of banter and people don't take it too seriously. We Warwickers know we go to a better uni than the Cov lot anyway And in fairness I've met more Cov boys on nights out than Warwick boys, and they've made a better first impression...even if one of them did do some kind of sport degree!

    At Sheffield it was a lot more serious I think. Even then though, it's banter.

    You can't. That's probably not what he told me specifically. I can't really remember.

    Yeah my friend says that is the case. Apparently Kings students reply by calling the UCL students "un-godly" :confused:

    Same in Edinburgh, if your from Queen Margaret, Heriot Watt or Napier. Your a joke.

    Your grammar is a joke? You're being funny? See the difference there?

    I found on nights out girls who went to the lower ranked university (DMU) at my city were much easier to get with then ones which went to the higher ranked university (Leicester).

    It's because UCL was the first non secular uni and admitted people whatever religion they were, they even let women in :eek: Kings was founded to counter this and only let Church of England students in. It's a really old rivalry.

    True. Uni of Leeds students look down on Leeds Met students. They don't mingle much at all. There's even a song about the difference in prestige / gulf between Uni of Leeds and Leeds Met.

    ''If you didn't get into Leeds go to Met'' (to the tune of 'If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands)!!
    AHAHA! really?! That sounds like its fun to sing. Im going to leeds this year so i wanna sing that XD but i wont, only because i have alot of friends who go to leeds met. I dont think theyre stupid or lower than me at all =) I do however, think ill probabally get better job chances in life

    There should a series of fights to the death between randomly selected students from the universities to settle the rivalries. Losers get free cremations (and honorary degrees from the winning institution for their martyrdom) :mmm:

    Can you expand on that at all? I like to know what I'm getting into
    Haha Soton and Soton Solent aren't that bad, we mix in a lot of the city centre clubs and there's some groups on fb but they're not serious.

    I once knew a guy that when hitting on my girlfriend mentioned he studied at Cambridge having known a few Oxbridge graduates I asked him what college he was at to which his reply was "um Cambridge"..... it turned out he studied Zoology at ARU. What a prat.

    Glasgow students look down on Strathclyde students, it doesn't help that they are on opposite sides of the city. I think Strathclyde is a decent uni. Having went to an ex-poly then onto a prestigious uni and top 5 rated professional course I know that a lot of it's down to social circumstances and not how smart the student is in the end.
    Who have you been talking too? I'm from Glasgow and have friends in both and almost everyone I know thinks they're equally as good but excel in slightly different subjects.
