    Sorry to change the topic lads and lasses, but is there anyone here (apart from Ed and myself) originally from a state comp?

    I haven't met a single one on my course yet.
    Yeah, me. I'm from a particularly bad one too. Damn proud of it

    Ya! I am. hehe. I remember feeling that last year two but in reality it doesn't actually matter unless the person/people in question is/are pompous ass(es)!

    I've found it kinda depends on subject, within archaeology I'd say it is 70% state to 30% private - possibly even higher state percentage. However in my Greek class I'd say it's probably about 90% private.

    Thirdly, I got elected to the union council I'm important now. I can make laws and get free drinks.

    Well, that's an exaggeration. They are planning on giving something to council members, but it'll most likely be a few vouchers for tea/coffee/coke.

    Yes. State, non-selective, in the North.

    *sighs in relief* Good to know, guys.

    Though the public school kids here are virtually indistinguishable from the state ones.

    What difference does it make? I zone out when people ask what school I went to, there are so many more interesting things in life.

    I was shocked, rather, thinking "how the hell do you expect to have heard of it?", before realising that he expected me to come from a public school.
