    I've a deep curiosity as to which fine institutions are the poshest universities in the UK.

    I'm going to have a punt and put:

    1. Oxford/Cambridge
    2. Oxford/Cambridge
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.

    But as for the rest I'm somewhat less sure and thought it could be an interesting exercise to see which universities people deemed the most 'rah'?

    So... rank the top ten if you will.

    The stats (from 2014) say:

    1. The University of Oxford
    2. The University of St Andrews
    3.The University of Bristol
    4.The University of Cambridge
    5. University of Durham
    6. Imperial College London
    7. University College London
    8. The University of Edinburgh
    9. The University of Exeter
    10. The University of Newcastle
    (ordered by percentage of students from private schools)

    LSE and King's come in just after Newcastle. But interestingly, the uni with the next highest proportion of private schoolers (above Warwick and York) is Oxford Brookes!

    I'm pretty sure the last three comments I've seen from you have been about London Met.

    Is the mighty UWS running out of material?

    I actually don't think Oxford or Cambridge are the poshest. Probably in the top 10 but not the top.

    Durham, St Andrews, Bristol. I would never employ anyone who graduates from one of those.
