Bless the Beeb/state school braindrain

Un-PC but sometimes true here.

At last, statistical proof of what I observed at Oxford; bright kids at state schools get worse grades than bright kids at private schools, all esle being equal. Quite simply, this proves exams tell you very little about actual intelligence; children are largely the products of their environment. The converse of this, is that halfwits at private schools can get straight A grades.
