Do oxford and cambridge discriminate against northerners?Watch
talkin about porn on the internet isnt nice
go out and grab urself some REAL PEOPLE
they disicriminate if your northern, working class, from an ethnic background, women.........you ame it they discriminate unless your posh middle class privater school kids.
First of all, I havent got a clue about the Oxford and Cambridge policy for choosing students, and maybe they discriminate against northeners, maybe they dont.
I'm from down south (buckinghamshire to be precise), and i just want to say that a lot of you on here have very misguided views. Very few people I know are anything like the "southern softie" stereotype person that a lot of you are painting us out to be. Not everyone is rich, and trust me, a hell of a lot of people (myself included) dont go to private schools. I dont even know anyone who goes to one.
So dont give me all this "Im so spoilt...mummy and daddy paid for my education" rubbish, because most of it is just not true. Also, Ive been to Newcastle and im still alive! (Gr8 place by the way).
I guess the point im trying to make is that you accuse Cambridge and Oxford of being predjudiced against northerners, when many of you are just as predjudice towards northerners.
PS Leekey, I support Liverpool too, and dont worry about Heskey, It'll be Owen and Baros up front next season!!
There, that makes more sense
Next time he comes on, please ask him where K -the bird he's trying to get in wiv- is from. I think you will enjoy the answer as she is pretty much as southern as you can get. If you read this Leekey Im sorry mate but you should stop aving a go at southerners.
its mostly how u project urself on the day, and also what ur personal statements like. i did pretty bad in the interview but my personal statement was pretty good so i got pooled.
its really subjective though. i dont agree that they discriminate at all, for one thing there are loads of incentives to take northern state school girls and for anotherthey just want ppl who r interested and going to do well.
2 ppl got in from my local private school and like 10 from the state school.
what can u expect tho when so many ppl apply? how hard would u find it to pick who stays& who goes?
One thing as a conclusion for you nervous people is that all the people I know that applied with 4/5As and were rejected, all had one thing in common... Doing terrible in the interview.
I know it sounds cheesey, but if they like your brain you're a winner. It's that simple.
Yes, it is voted the worst place in the UK. Ho hum.
