    I'm the kind of person who achieves grades similar to very high achievers, but I put it ALOT more work then they do, I mean ALOT. Is the work in the top universities harder then the not as prestigious ones?

    Any responses please quote me!

    Theres a lot of set work that you have to do at unis like oxbridge, and instead of 10/11 weeks terms, you have 8 week terms to cram everything into. So yes, there is a lot of work involved at some of the more prestigious unis.

    It's all unvital work though, and you can bodge it and still do alright in the end In theory the exams at the end of your degree are no more difficult to anywhere else though.
