.........about Oxford Students. There is a scene in one of Colin Dexter's Morse books where Morse is describing the idiosyncracies of Christ Chursh. He tells Lewis that fellows there are called students and that Christ Church is 'The House'. Whereupon meeting a Christ Church graduate, Lewis refers to it as 'The House', and the student tells him that no one but a pedant would refer to it as that.
Anyway, my point is that a lot of the things that guide books claim about Oxford are not really true. No one I know says they 'read' for whatever degree. More coming soon....
