the guy i am on about, did really well at GCSE, but his as levels were like 1 A and 3 B's....and not in really ahrd subjects either, and his personal statemnt wasnt that good either, and he siad he didnt prepeare that much for interview, yet he got offer of AAB. he didnt even get AAB in his final A2's....he just missed out and got ABB...but Oxford couldnt be arsed filling up his place with one of the rejected people who got straight A's in their A2 exams, so they said "just bloody come on in and shut the hell up whining on the phone". bit unfair on teh people who got rejected who were more worthy of a place than him.....

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!
