      I really enjoyed being at Cambridge. I didn’t like it too much at first, because I went there with a bit of a bad attitude: I was expecting everybody to be posh and over privileged. But once I started giving people a chance I realised that most people were actually perfectly normal, and I made lots of great friends. It’s very good academically, they have a good tutoring system that means you get taught in quite small groups to back up the lectures. And they provide accommodation all the time you’re there if you want it, which is cheaper than renting a private house. All in all, I recommend it!
