    That's really hard to say, because it depends so much on who your tutor is. In any university there will be some great and some not-so great tutors, and which you get is a matter of chance. I think the best you can do is to ask how many hours you get and how large the tutorial groups are. At my uni, first and second years get 1 hour per week in a group of 3 or 4 students. I think this is fairly standard, although some groups may be larger at other institutions.

    Yeah I agree with this. Even at Cambridge some of our supervisors are just plain crappy. The main difference is just that we get at least 4 hours a week of them, sometimes up to 8.

    Royal Holloway.

    4-8 hours is great (or horrible, depending on the tutor).
