    Yep, that must be it. It explains why you're always so obnoxious and condescending all the time, in fact thats exactly how I recognised you.
    Glad you see it. My idol Jeremy Corbyn went to London Met. He’s doing pretty well I must say. Soon we will turn the UK to communism and it will be wonderful, all thanks to Mr. Corbyn. He’s the hero the UK deserves but not the one it needs.

    Exactly. A true leftist, stuck to the roots of labour and has mesmerised our nation and why is that? His education at london met, of course.

    Let's see if one hater can name a uni with more TFL tube adverts than london met.

    I imagine so... they don't have their sources anywhere, so you gotta trust them either way.

    I don't talk to our Asians.
    Well, if you look at LSE's LLB. 98% continuation rate with a 185 sample. Class of degree sample is only 155. Other LLBs have a greater disparity between the two stats -- but maybe 30 people did leave the LSE course? I would say maybe year abroad or something, but then the previous year's year abroads would bolster the current year's numbers with their return.



    Racist.

    Oh no, it’s all in the beard man. I would strap myself to a table and let Marius Pudianowski reign down his heaviest blows upon my crotch for 30 seconds straight while listening to Rick Astley's "never gonna give you up" just to shave my pubes with Mr. Corbyn’s beard shaving razor

    No homo...Maybe a little for Big J though😍

    In my course I’m in the 95th percentile. Can count the people I deem as bright students on my fingers. How about you? Are you one of the best in your course, one of the worst or somewhere in the middle?
    Trying to not hurt anybodys ego here is almost impossible

    If it helps, the Asians don't talk to us either. The racisms cancel themselves out.

    I get your point, and the 30-person gap seems to be odd. Why on earth are 30 people dropping out from second to third year, or choosing not to sit their third year exams? We're not exactly talking about Oxford Finals stress levels here. I think it's FOI time.

    Canterbury Christ Church has that blond girl posing with a vivid red background. I've seen it in all the stations I've passed through recently - usually on the escalators.

    Usually it is international (though you get some British-Asian cliques, too). Typically the ones who don't mix are from Singapore/HK, maybe Shanghai. If it's Mainland Chinese, they won't even mix with the Singy/HK lot never mind Brits/Europeans.

    I like them. We get good Oriental restaurants on campus because of them; makes a huge difference from the near-ubiquitous eggs Benedict/fry-up/burger and fries ********. And they make me feel extra tall; like walking around Wonka's factory.

    ye

    I'm not the sort of person who calls e.g. British Pakistanis Asian. They're British Pakistanis or whatever

    Edit: What Notorious said. Mainland Chinese are the worst.

    The usual warnings about this being my own experience etc apply

    Not really, even though it is very unequal in terms of the student backgrounds. You have people from council houses sitting in the same lecture as rich people from Dubai whose parents earn enough to pay for their tuition up front. But I don't think that this results in any classism. Most friendship groups align with whether you're UK/EU or international, and, within those groups, people are more... economically homogeneous. The German and Dutch people I know well are similar, financially speaking, to the Home Counties people I've met. I should probably also note that lots of internationals hang out with EU/UK and vice versa, but those internationals are from the former colonies and they're alright. Aussies in particular are a laugh.

    About a third of UK students are privately schooled, even though that figure is deceptive - there are lots of grammar school kids at places like LSE who slip under the monitoring radar. So the 'poshness' ratio may be higher than expected.

    Ohh right.

    Are there lots of pakis there? Ngl cant stand the moderate types either
    Lots of British Indians and Pakistanis. This may sound weird, but I prefer native Pakistanis to British Pakistanis. The latter tend to be grammar-schooled London kids from Zone 5 with dads who work in the City. They study junk subjects and are your typical arrogant IB types. The former, from my experience, come from more typical middle class families (and are only at LSE because of their scholarships), are extremely polite and courteous, and tend to be more serious and less prone to f*ing around and pissing everyone off. They're also a lot more ambitious, but in the modest sense - they may want to become academics or politicians back home, as opposed to M&A analyst ****boys

    I don't know how I measured up overall, but I won a few prizes and had the highest dissertation scores in the cohort for my BA and MA. It's nice in a sense but I never found it that important, I jsut like to do what I do and be ok at it, yknow.

    upper quartile I think, not top 5 but have been on a few of the practicals, I think it's what I am best at to be honest
    I am not expecting amazing exam results so there's that
    however with lab reports and stuff my average for the first semester is around 81% which I am happy with
