That was Cameron (with his Bullingdon Club chums) and it happened probably 25 years ago.
And it probably did not even happen

We will never know. The media is quite good at making things up.

lol...definitely an unwarranted expulsion.

We have one student studying medicine at Oxford who attempted to murder her boyfriend. She has a history of violence and in court she was shown to also be addicted to alcohol. She wasn't given a sentence for her attempted murder. She was not even given a criminal record, because it will affect her career. She was allowed to carry on studying at the university. She is currently studying at the university and she will become a doctor in the future. I am of course referring here to Lavina Woodward.

Your friend got expelled for playing a silly prank, whilst this attempted murderess and drug addict who's studying a career that will allow her access to vulnerable patients is allowed to carry on in her career, because she's too rich, clever and female to go to jail. I am perplexed by this disparity in the way students are treated at these corrupt institutions.

I certainly wasnt going on Stats for my research and opinion. I actually found every member of staff and students on the open day the most engaging, polite and happy that we'd seen at any other university so far. We also have relatives that finished at this uni last year so very recent and it really helped them. Each situation is different, just like secondary schools suit some and not others. I guess we have to hope that our children know what to do if they are having difficulties and cant get help at the uni they're at (which is terribly sad if this is the case)

You are absolutely right Wired.

My friend was at this university. Thanks to perpetual bullying, corruption and abuse they attempted suicide last year.

I have spoken to four students at different programmes at this university. They all complain of the exact same things. There seems to be very serious problems at this university and it seems to be very very good at hiding these problems and keeping them from public attention. Every now and then thanks to leaks we have stories like this coming out.

Having spoken to students at this university I would not be surprised if this student, the one with the fake gun, turned out to have done what he or she done as a result of pressure, corruption, exploitation or bullying at the university. In my research I have found out that this university does not allow the student guild to get involved in directly supporting students during investigations. I have found out that the student guild at this university often does not answer phone calls and only ever responds to emails, and its staffed by a very small number of people who are over worked, often carrying out tasks whilst on their holidays. It employs one of the largest teams of lawyers that I have ever come across at a university that help protect it and its interests. This university clearly has a lot of issues. One student at the university passed an audio recording to me of staff and students at this university mocking and abusing patients at a hospital. This university is a scandal waiting to happen.

Those on this thread relying in their research of this university on stats, I highly recommend you refrain from doing that as most of these stats are as Wired wrote in his comments greatly unreliable and often disconnected from the reality of these universities. I would highly advise students, particularly those from minority backgrounds, to stay away from this university like they would the plague.

You're exaggerating the Lavinia Woodward story. She was high on various substances and it was nothing like attempted murder, she hit her b/f with a not very sharp breadknife, causing a superficial wound. She's paid pretty dearly for it, losing her place at Oxford and getting a criminal conviction.

Calling Exeter and Oxford 'corrupt institutions' is silly and unsubstantiated.

LW’s charge and conviction was for unlawful wounding. The case has been widely reported & following a period of suspension LW left the University.

LW left the University.
It seems that this happened a few days ago. My information relating to this woman was outdated.

Lack of information should never get in the way of a good prejudiced rant though.

Something similar happened at my school!
A person was kicked out of a subject for wielding a 'fake' gun because a teacher saw it and raised the alarm :-)
It was media and he was just doing some work for his video. I don't really know why he was kicked out of the subject for it tbh.
