They refuse to reveal his grades. Probably BBB but because he's Blair's son he is just given the place anyway. I seriously hope that is not the case.
i heard that quite a lot of ppl have slipped their grades. a medicine tutor told me that nearly 25% had missed the grades this year (i think it's only in medicine) when normally it's only at 7%.
I imagine that Nicky Blair is going to LMH because it will be so much easier logistically for security reasons, as the site is so big and everything. One of my friends is going to do English at LMH, and she seemed quite distressed at the thought of security guards being in the college etc.
I can picture it now.
Somebody pennies his drink during formal and 4 security gaurds pounce on him/her, drag him/her off kicking and screaming and shoot him/her in the face multiple times.
If Nicky and his family didn't want to publish grades, then that is fair enough, it's up to them.
Tony is undoubtedly very able and got into Oxford of his own back (well I guess with some help from Charterhouse), but he has been sending his son for lots of extra tution and help to ensure he gets the grades.
ironic how the blair govmt makes things so difficult now for state and public school pupils alike to get into oxbridge now. also notice how many senior cabinet members have safely made it through the system and now with their oxbridge degrees they can set about messing it up for everyone else.
they hate oxbridge and everything it stands for. 3000 pounds a year top up fees? they're seriously gonna need waaaaaaaaay more than that to mantain their standards.
in the end everyong will lose out because cash-strapped unis will be forced to tke more people from over-seas. end of.
Further evidence of the superiority of Cambridge.
The reason the kids grades weren't published is because they would be in subjects that people might sneer at, leading to critical newspaper editorials etc.
