Argh! New College, Oxford, say they will “honour” all “offers” (source: BBC), even ones they made to students who haven’t made their grades. Oh thank you, thank you! This is one of the nobbiest colleges of Oxford University – it’s one of the nobbiest university organisations in the world – with a 600-year-old connection with Winchester College and close ties with Eton College too. Seriously if you are 18 years old and doing well at a comprehensive school and nobody in your family has been to university before, the idiot teachers at the school are unlikely to advise you to apply to New, unless maybe the Oxford colleges have split the country up into areas to conduct their “outreach” in (as Cambridge colleges have) and you look funny or something, so they can get some publicity out of you to show the world how equal-ops they are. They all love “hugging hoodies” so much, both before and after they pass the port they quaff in the service of “charity”.
The whole system of “offers” stinks and shows how patrician Britain is. Do your betters think you have the “potential” to “benefit” from university? Yes? Well here’s an offer, made to you after they heard your accent at interview and read what the school said about you. Be grateful? No? Well naff orf!
