    Think EastEnders directors were being glassist. Gus should have applied to Oxbridge ages ago but look at where he ended up. Hell, they even axed the poor guy for no reason.

    Most people won't really care/pay attention to this storyline; neither of them have been portrayed as particulary smart in the past (from what I've seen), so it'd be a bit too easy if they got into Oxbridge.

    Didn't both Oxford and Cambridge encourage this storyline, as part of their desire to appeal to a different group of possible applicants?

    I heard Cambridge were doing it in Coronation Street.

    Tamwar.
    Don't know him, googled him and came across this interestingly:

    'in 2008, it was reported that Cambridge University wanted to shed its "elitist" image and approached the producers of Britain's three leading soaps, EastEnders, Coronation Street and Emmerdale, to include it in their storylines.'

    the storyline is totally funny as it seems so unrealistic but they did take their AS last summer so the timeline is right but wat i don;t get is they got straight A's for AS so why is she so panicky now since she always gets A's

    She clearly should have joined up to TSR.

    We would have set her straight.

    What confused me is that I'm sure the other day Tamwar was talking as though he hadn't actually sent it off yet, even though a Cambridge Medicine application definately been in like, two weeks ago. It confused me somewhat.

    Yeah, apparently the Oxford and Cambridge deadline doesn't apply to Tamwar. He changed his mind as to which university he wanted to apply to an episode or two ago, but it's sort of been a while since the deadline has passed.

    I think it'd be a great storyline for him to try and apply now, and suddenly realise that the deadline is gone! Oh noes!

    Idiots. If they're going to do something like this, they might as well do it right, instead of being all half-arsed about it. I also hate how they're making it seem as though it's either Oxford or Cambridge, or a really rubbish university. Obviously there aren't any other good unis around at all.
