also, in my parents day, you had to be top in your class to get to University...now its the norm to continue. My Mother applied for Cambridge, my Father applied for Oxford. Both failed and ended up at York. My Grandfather actually DID go to Cambridge to read BSC Natural Science...by comparison, most univiersities now are polytechnic that offer fluffy bunny subjects and...well half the people with degrees end up working shyte jobs...all they really have is a bunch of debt.
like me for example hahahahaha
plus labour ruined the Secondary Education level of our entire system with A/S Level Exams and stuff like that
