    I know one, she seems to work very hard.

    They are fairly mysterious - so mysterious they dont have much of a stereotype, though the AMES faculty has got quite a bad reputation.
    Why the bad rep?

    I googled it now and really when you're at Cambridge no one gives a rat's ass about the prestige of the school you came from because no school is nearly as prestigious as Cambridge University.
    I also wouldn't get too hung up on the prestige of any university...

    hey man i swear i remember you from A level maths threads? You do it early or something?

    maths is fairly obvious: poor social skills, sexually inexperienced, quiet,

    Deffo. I want a body piercing but I hate needles. Pretty sure I kicked the nurse when she gave me a vaccination. I was 3. Haha just so you don't think I'm violent.

    In my defence she hurt me first! 😂
    hahhaa to be fair I put off getting them pierced for a good couple of years before how much I wanted them outweighed my stupidly low tolerance for pain

    They're stereotypes for a reason.
    All they sound like are vague general descriptions kinda like the horoscope ****

    how quickly you settle into a routine and forget you're "at cambridge"

    most academics are very friendly.

    tbh, not a lot surprised me

    Well I don't like the word prestige either, it doesn't have much meaning. I'm not hung up on prestige all I'm saying is you can't brag about your "prestigious" school while at Cambridge.
