In defense, I Personally don't possess a degree
, so can anyone of you wonderful people clarify why these two Uni's are The
place to go for one.
Having worked with several people, and know several others that have either got their degree's from one or other of these prestigious universitys, but being unable to ask, for fear of being seen as truly thick
, I cannot in all honesty understand what's the point. The people I know, whilst thoroughly nice, don't appear to have any advantage. Work in jobs that I with mere 'A' Levels have access to.
A Degree, is a degree, isn't it?
What's the lure of Oxford and Cambridge?
When it comes to grammar, my only interest is that my child needs challenging, and is, and has been, bored to tears with the primary work pushed at him. So I can see the positives of grammar.
I understand the need of a degree, but just can't see why it would be better from these particular Uni's..
(Please be gentle
