In my opinion, as a distinguished A-Level student with A*A*AA in Chemistry, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and, Further Additional Mathematics and currently attending The University of Manchester studying Mathematics, I feel that the number of RG universities is far too high.

As a result, I propose a system called 'The Big 8' where you have high succesful universities in this exact order

Manchester
Cambridge
Oxford
Imperial
UCL
LSE
Edinburgh
Durham

Manchester is a very underrated univeristy, so I am putting it in large font in order to emphasise the greatness of the insitutition that I am currently attending.

In your opinion, which universities should be removed from the RG? I'd say that Liverpool is an absolute disgrace and should be culled with immediate effect.

Remove Manchester and add Bristol or Warwick to that "big 8" group you've made

What is it with students and stroking their egos by promoting their uni and belittling others?

All universities below oxbridge and to a (much) lesser extent ICL/UCL/LSE are the same nobody gives a damn if you went to Manchester, Warwick (tsrs premier circle jerk) or Greenwich - they’re all the same in the eyes of most grad schemes.

This isn’t the US we dont have a ‘big 8’ or even 5 universities, russel group =\= ivy league, we have two elite institutions thats it. Your ex plateglass with a fantastic maths course or your redbrick with like 20 noble laureattes are impressive but nothing special and are no better than other non oxbridge unis.

Another one of these pathetic threads. No one cares where you go, why do you care where others go. Stop feeding your insecurity trying to get one up on other people about your uni you are so so boring.

Your obviously incredibly biased to Manchester, and tbh you are probably trying to make yourself feel better by saying it's the best uni there is.

It's a troll.

Kinda like the Oxbridge reject trolls who created alt accounts back in the day calling for the abolition of all 'non-elite' universities.

I guess it felt good for them to see what being in the position of an Oxbridge student was like, even on a student forum.

But then again this thread was made to wire up Wired_1800, so it's a different matter.

Can't you request an IP comparison to find out? And preferably get a hold of the lad's LinkedIn too, if you wouldn't mind.

Could make the same list and place Nottingham in it, your second tier with my University, Which is Nottingham. Really the only thing that makes you somewhat more prestigious is the fact that your attributed to a larger city. All Russell groups are somewhat similar and other then Oxbridge your simply in the second tier.
