    come on guys lets be realistic the people who go to oxbridge are naturally smart and make the school look good. they also have high standards which means the they dont have to work as hard because the teachers already know that the pupils are already know most of the stuff. if a university like greenwich had high specifications then the uni would be in the same league as the cambridge and oxfoerd universities.

    do you guys agree?

    no - it is about academic reputation.


    No way, oxbridge's reputation for being hard work must have some basis, anyway no-one will know the degree level stuff before they get there so they must teach their students something.

    Also the reason oxbridge are of 'high league' is beacause they have high academic standards plus you have to endure tough interviews - they get the pick of the best.

    Well places like Oxford, Cambridge and others like Imperial or LSE, including lots of others, have very good research reputations as well.

    They also do the TQA assessment things, which Oxbridge scores very highly in.
