    i agree with suzy.it just so happens that there are a lot of people on this forum who are either at oxbridge or want to go there, its not our fault for wanting to talk about something that we find important to us. the majority of people who post here know perfectly well that it isn't the be all and end all, those who don't....well they'll realise it one day

    is it just me or do other people here feel they are resented for acheiving something they wanted? i understand how people may think that because theres an 'oxbridge' forum here, it's a bit cliquey maybe, but if a forum was set up for football/other sports/other hobbies u wouldnt get people there saying football etc etc isnt the be all and end all

    That's why this forum was created - so that we wouldn't bug the hell out of people in the main forum with all of the oxbridge posts...
