is that female compscis or females in general? are there female compscis?
There are female compscis, and they are the only compscis that are tagged with the keyword "public", hence can be seen by the "world". Where as most male compscis are tagged with "private" which means we are only visible to the "class" we belong to.

Very bad compsci joke....

Probably 20 or so in total undergrads, there's a few more grads I think.

do classics students actually have to get out of bed on a normal day?
you guys are so lucky.
yes, we do. on top of the normal essay a week that most arts students get, we have to do language too, which makes up 60% of our grade this year. So if the essay a week is just 40%, and most history/english students only do the essay a week, we do 250% of the work of an average history or english student, but it's assumed by all you annoying scientists that we're all the same.

no one understands what architecture students do... they seem to think its just drawing pretty pictures, but its ****loads of work: arty things like essays, plus theres loads of science involved, and we have to stay in the department til 10pm or so most days making models & doing tech drawings

By that logic, since I often have 3 essays a week, I do 300% of the work of a history or english student. Add maths questions, practical writeups, etc, and you're looking at easily 400%. (and I am an "annoying scientist". who said the person who was winding you up was a scientist anyway?)

I don't think any of us genuinely think ANY cambridge course is easy. I don't see what we gain from going "Ooh, my subject is so much harder than your subject!!".

are your essays 2,000-3,000 words long with a 10-15 book reading list?

PS: Camford it restricts it to the package or subclasses where subclasses in a different package can't all/access up the hierachy (eg call protected members on the parent).

We don't have reading lists, and no, they are not usually that long. (This was exactly my point - you can't say "I do an essay plus this or that, and they only do an essay! I must work x% harder than them!" For one thing, English students I know don't "only do the essay a week" - they usually have translations and practical criticism work to do as well.)

I genuinely do not see what any of us get out of trying to out-compete each other with I write more words than you/I have more lectures than you/I read more books than you/I have saturday lectures and you don't..etc...

I think we should all realise by now that you cannot directly compare degrees that are so different. You can't put a numerical amount on all the different things we do and have to do then add them up to conclude who works the hardest! - for one thing, there is a huge spread of how hard people work just within a subject.

The CompSci revision tips class is tomorrow at 5pm.. and I got to choose my room for next year at 5pm tomorrow... which I should I go to? Nice rooms, or possibly better grade? Nice rooms, or possibly better grade? Nice rooms, or possibly better grade? Nice rooms, or possibly better grade? Nice rooms, or possibly better grade?

I can't decide, therefore I will go to neither...

I haven't got much of practice with all the cool feature of OOP yet... obviously...

My friend wrote a java program to check for webpage updates, e.g. newly published stories or blogs. It checks all the bookmarks... Imagine doing that yourself, ramping through 30 sites... Very useful tool.
