    theres this guy in our year who got
    a few A's but mostly B' and C's at GCSE
    got CDD for his AS level

    this year he begged to the teachers to predict him ABB

    And yet managed to get an offer for maths and computer science at
    IMPERIAL!!!!!
    the usual offer Imperial give for this course is AAA yet for him they have given BBB!!!

    how unfair is this...plus he does do any sports,debating, YE, DOE, community etc. Ive known him for 5 to 6 years now and he dossed about all his school years (and almost got suspended once!!) yet now he only has to get BBB to go to a world famous uni

    ie you dont feel that he deserves to go into such a great uni with such a poor work ethic when other people who dreams about going to Imperial with much better work ethic gets rejected...type thing yea these things happen, good for him
