    Type 1 is the most affluent, type 56 is the least. But, they are divided into many different categories so types which are close may still be the same economically. And I think it's on a national scale.
    Oh dear god! But I'm the poorest person I know in my school! Sorry, helplessly spluttering because I know Oxford UNIQ Summer School selects based on how disadvantaged your ACORN post code is, and that seems really unreflective of my family.

    "mature families living in suburban semis"
    "Many women work part-time now that their children are older or have left home."

    Pretty accurate in my situation.

    This is a gentler traditional lifestyle with outdoor activities such as golf, gardening, bird watching, hiking and visits to places of interest such as stately homes.

    Readership of the Daily Express and Daily Telegraph reflects these families more traditional values.




    Hahahaha, no. My family collects the Sun holiday vouchers

    Type 2 apparently. Some of it is pretty accurate, other bits not so much, like
    "They enjoying walking, playing golf and going to the gym"

    Type 39, which I must admit is fairly accurate. Yes, we run at least one car, two even, but regular holidays to Europe and the Mediterranean? I don't think so. It didn't give me any newspaper info though.
    I also checked out the place I grew up in. Apparently it's a Type 17 which is impossible because it's Tottenham, North London. Lol. So I searched the post code of my primary school which is only a 10 minute walk down the road and hey presto, an arguably more accurate verdict. It gave me Type 56...which I don't really agree with because I think there are far worse places to live in the UK. Ah well...

    f***'s sakes, really?! That's ridiculous - I got type 3, have I got no hope of my application being successful? :confused:
