    LOL, if you believed the story...you'd deserve to be slaughtered. Some courses are easIER to get into at Oxbridge, nothing is particularly easy.

    I assume you're talking about me as you mentioned me in the previous post. Half your info is incorrect or made up as it's never been raised here.

    AABB at AS, didn't prepare for interview. But decent personal statement. The "shut the hell up whining" is complete *******s haha, it was 2 people per place (yes, less than most other subjects) and I got an AAB offer (normally AAA) for caning the interview - which highlights that interviews are so important, it made up for not having 4 As at AS (grades I did get at A2 though).

    Ohh man, that's a classic. It's amazing how some random guy can have such an insight into exactly what was said in the phone conversation of another person!
