    I just got the results of my final exams in secondary school (I'm not in the UK).

    I got the grades to get into Oxford (against expectations).

    Well done.

    Don't mean to put a downer on it but I'd never apply to Oxbridge even if I was intelligent enough (which I'm not). I can't stand the pomposity (I hope that's a word) of the places.

    Oxford's a really nice city, living here I can vouch for that.

    I didn't say the people were pompous, I meant the places. The Universities themselves.

    such a pompous thing to say. the only way to change things is to be part of them.

    I don't want to be 'trying to change things' (especially something so major) at Uni though, I want to be 'having a laugh'. Besides, Oxford/Cambridge aren't going to change hundreds of years of tradition because some students kick up a bit of fuss.

    Thanks everyone for your comments! (&for boosting my ego. )

    I'm going to study PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) at Queen's College.

    The offer was conditional on me getting a general average of 50 out of 60 marks in my final exams, and I got 52.

    BTW, someone even gave me rep for this! Interesting, considering I get next to no rep for my contributions to the debating forum...
