    You spelt "grammar" wrong, actually. >_>

    Why would you think that universities are more keen on state and grammar school students?

    No. They will probably take into account your educational background when looking at your grades but they will not actively prefer a state educated student over a privately educated one.

    Its 'grammar' by the way.

    Its an urban myth that they discriminate against those from Private schools. They wouldn't be allowed to.

    What effect would their not being allowed to actually have, though? It's not as if the selection process for university applicants is well-known for its transparency...
