    Taken from the IB vs A levels thread a while back. Notice the order of the two names in the title ( best one first, second best after). :p:

    You decide

    PS. I vote Cambridge because I'm applying there and they rule

    In my opinion, Cambridge is slightly academically better, but Oxford would be the better exprience and has a better reputation

    I put it here because:

    a) It was discussed in a thread ON this forum.
    b) We IBers have an opinion on these things.
    c) Usually stuff in this sub-forum is "Please help with my homework" which is highly irritating - we need a change.

    Want any more reasons??

    Go Cambridge!

    Given that I can a few extremely important scientific discoveries made at Cambridge (the DNA, for example, plus a whole bunch of modern and/or astrophysics stuff), while I can't think of anything interesting with Oxford, given the choice of those two I would have chosen the former. But off the topic: I'm perfectly happy where I am

    All oxford has is the reputation....if u look at their academics cambridge kicks oxford ass very badly. besides in some departments oxford can't even make it to top 10 in UK...so all that reputation isn't even worth it if ur not getting the best academics. many people/employers are fooled when they hear ppl r from oxford. in my opinion cambridge is much better - it givs u reputation as well as the highest level of education u deserve

    I agree with above poster in most of it... But Oxford tend to be really good in certain subjects (e.g. languages, social sciences and biochemistry), at least about the same level as Cambridge. But yeah my personal opinion is Cambridge all the way=)

    It depends really on the subjects u wanna do...really

    I didn't apply to neither...Went for L101 Econ, got an offer, was my firm, and missed my grades... and LSE is TOP fro Econ and everyone knows it!!!!!!!

    My choice: CAMBRIDGE, regret I didn't even try for it, my UCAS coordinator, said was a waste of time...
