Prince William Attending Cambridge University Is An Insult?! Students & Alumni Sure Think So!!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaRoyals RoycePrince WilliamSchoolGIFs

Prince William admittance to Cambridge an insult

Uh ohhhhh!! Looks like not everyone is happy about this!!

We reported last year (LOLz) that Prince William is heading back to school to attend Cambridge for a specially designed course in agricultural management!

But it seems that students & alumni of the University are pointing out how unfair his admittance is!


Cambridge's own newspaper, The Tab, has pointed out that Prince George's dad doesn't exactly meet Cambridge's grade requirement!

He said:

"Normally students need A*AA at A-level to gain entry to Cambridge University, whilst the Prince only achieved a mediocre ABC. Conveniently though for Will, he is the registered benefactor of the department he will be studying at."

Ouch!! It seems he's totes not living up to their expectations!

Not only has his inadequacy been pointed out, but a writer at The Guardian, who recently graduated from the school, is even going so far as to call the admittance a HUUUUGE insult!

She wrote:

"Admitting Prince William is an insult to every student, whatever their background, who got into Cambridge by getting the required A-level or degree results.

It's an insult to every student whose A-levels and degree are the same or better than his, and who didn't get a free pass to Cambridge in spite of them.

And it's an insult to everyone in the country who needs skills or training, and hasn't had a university course personally designed for them."

Double OUCH! Those are some HARSH words!

We hope that writer never comes face-to-face with William or Kate Middleton cause we're SURE they're not happy with the article she's written about him!

    Hate the english school system.
    Prince William's ABC at the time he earned them would be what is A*AB currently, as A* didn't exist at A-Level until 2010.

    Conveniently though for Will he is the future King!! Need more be said!

    I had to work my arse off to get 3 A*'s and earn my place at Cambridge. Why should he be allowed in just because he is the future king. He shouldn't have been allowed into St Andrews never mind Cambridge. He might be the Duke of the city but that shouldn't gain him access to a uni that people who do a lot more hard work than him and deserve that place a lot more don't get into.

    Doesn't seem to upset too many people that pretty much everyone we see cheated to get where they are. Funny that when it comes to someone getting an education that people would finally say something. He's royalty tought Sh*T

  6. hahaha says – reply to this


    guys he's the fucking future king of the country!!! He can do whatever the fuck he wants! Why do you care if he got in without the required grades it's not like he's gonna steal any of you peasants' jobs… 'just because he's the duke' YEAH JUST BECAUSE HE'S THE DUKE HE CAN GET THE FUCK OVER IT.

    She is BUTT-UGLY; she ain't no Diana…that's for sure.

    Personally I worked my butt off for the grades I got and will have years of debt for my uni education…nice to know that my hard earned money will go towards paying for his 'exclusive' education and everything else…The person who wrote the article was right, and has a right to her own opinion - free speech and all that! He shouldn't be getting this 'top up' education just because he is royal…at the end of the day he still has to put his trousers on one leg at a time!

    for me it's a good news that he is admetted you are only jelous!! I'm for monarchy and so that's it!!

    There's no Agricultural Management at a school he qualifies for?
    Being a benefactor is no small potatoes, though. It helps all of the other students and
    the school in a rather large way financially.

    Ahh.. The famous syndrome of inferiority complex suffered by the majority of people with high IQs.

    It seems that the more a human brain has great capacity, more the small defects also are greats .. What a shame to have such a pride for so little. An high IQ does not make you a better person, we must believe?.

  12. Julie says – reply to this


    seems like "…" is too high and mighty to put in an actual name. The way you pompously talk makes you sound like a complete hypocrite. These are grades we are talking about, not someones IQ. Those are two completely different things. IQ's test your potential, grades are reflections of how hard you work. If you don't work hard, you shouldn't be rewarded the same as people who do.It's a simple concept that not a lot of people in these comments understand it seems. Hard work and dedication are something that money can't (or at least shouldn't) be able to buy. It's the same deal with everyone saying how women shouldn't be able to be in the army if they can't meet the physical requirements. The same rules apply. If you can't meet the standards, then you don't get a free ride. No exceptions.

    Re: Julie – Jesus!?

    What is a school test or a school exam then?
    What will be the difference for a struggling student and another student who learns easily?
    The effort may be! … : S

    —- You should be ashamed! —-

    You guys realise that this is a short course which leads to no qualifications, and thus is actually inferior even to Cambridge's summer school or IELTS preparation courses which require nothing but money (or proficiency in English for the former)?

    Well, on the other hand, he does want to learn as opposed to party, which is something.

  16. Julie says – reply to this


    what is a school test or exam? Really? it's something that affects your grades. you work hard, you get good grades. There are special classes for struggling students, as there will always be MANY OTHER universities for these kinds of students to attend. William doesnt NEED to go to Cambridge, he just WANTS to. What about all the hard working students who do get into a good school but cant afford it?

    Re: JulieRe: JulieRe: Julie – So according to you, a person with less reflection that takes more time to do its work and can not get a good grade should be judged in the same way by the teacher in relation to another person who has a great reflection capacity and can do its work in a short time while getting good grades?
    Where the hell is your EFFORT for grades in all this?

    Re: … – *reflexion*

    In addition,

    What do you think gives you reflexion?

    A good memory coupled with a good concentration ability allows you to have a will. All this gives the possibility to have any wisdom or intelligence.
    The intelligence that is found to be IQ.
    You need all this if you dare claim to have a great reflexion!
