A large British student forum that is 99% inhabited by geeks and nerds who spend the best part of their days talking about schools and universities whilst also pretending they're cool and get laid at parties every weekend (whilst having 300,000+ post counts), whilst also discussing how they did in their latest exams, as well as bitching about how they ONLY got an A on (insert GCSE here) or ONLY 598/600 marks in their AS level Physics exam and how they are demanding a remark for 600/600, because obviously it doesn't matter about the fact they have an A. MUST GET THAT REMARK.
For some reason, they're all obsessed with Oxbridge and the other top 5 universities, and don't seem to acknowledge that getting less than A* in your GCSE's or A's in your A-levels doesn't make you thick and doesn't doom you to ex-polytechnic universities (what's wrong with them anyway?)
Politically, the forum is very left-wing, so if you mention ANY negative point about immigration, islam, etc. prepare to be bashed to smitherines in the debate topics.
- Typical discussion on The Student Room -
Geek Girl: I got my GCSE's back today. I got 3 A*, 5 A's and 4 B's. I'm so happy. I'm doing four A levels.
Geek Boy: OMFG. HAHAHAHA. YOU FAILED YOUR GCSES AND YOU FAILED AT LIFE. YOU'LL NEVER GET INTO OXBRIDGE UNLIKE ME, I GOT 12 A* AND I'M DOING 6 A LEVELS .
Geek Girl 2: Just 12 A*?! I GOT 15 A*
YOU'RE BOTH THICK. I'M CLEARLY THE BEST OBBRIDGE CANDIDATE HERE
