BRAKESPEARE: Student rejected by Oxbridge shares anguish on website - and there’s little consolation from readers
A WANNABE medical student has been bemoaning the fact he’s not secured a place at either Cambridge or Oxford.
“I came so close but just missed it,” he explains on a website aptly entitled ‘Rejected by Cambridge and Oxford’.
“How do you feel?” he asks fellow subscribers to the website.
Responses were few and far between and remained, as it turned out, at just the one which, arguably, offered little by way of consolation.
“There are numerous fantastic universities in the UK that aren’t Oxbridge,” was the response.
