Do oxford and cambridge discriminate against northerners?Watch
To LittleMissSmile, I have been to Newcastle and it is awesome. Top clubs and bars (don't know much else besides the football and clubs but.......). The point that the other guy was making was that these people can't hack it in the world outside their little sphere (I think).
newcastle night life does rule! at least once these exams have finished i may b able to have a social life again!!!!!
NO, there should be a fuss made because I have seen some of the brightest people I have ever met get straight A's all thought their educational career and then get rejected by some f**king university. Who must have felt that they weren't good enough for there "establishment".
But I have watched these people work harder than any person sitting in a private ( mummy and daddy paid for) school, that got accepted in place of them. Surely a university must realise that a person working their way from a lower class backgound must have more potential than a student with equivalent grades that went to a private school!!!!!
we cant get in2 the truths behind it all, but from my point of view it seems clear. they dont discriminate against classes as such, just against the ppl who dont meet ht requirements.
and i go to state school
A friend's experience has kinda soured my view on these universities and i now consider them to be lower than pond scum!!!!
I would disagree in that I think that they are more likely to accept a privately educated student in place of a state educated student with equivalent grades.
Anyway, it isn't all about predicted grades. Nearly everyone who applies to Oxbridge will be predicted AAA or AAB, so the interview is used to assess potential.
Cheers for the info
There should be about 20 of us going up so it should be decent. Were gonna do it after exam results.......mainly to forget about them and how miserably I failed electronics!!!
Cheers for the info
Seriously, had better not be man u next year, or i'll be well pissed off.
