Which is older - Oxford or Cambridge?

Cambridge was founded in 1209 (it is celebrating its 800th anniversary in 2009). Oxford was founded a little bit earlier though the exact date is unknown. Cambridge was founded by faculty from Oxford who realised they could do better and left.

All the Oxford colleges (what make up Oxford University) were founded many years after the founding of Cambridge and are thus younger than Cambridge University.

The University of Oxford is the oldest English-speaking university in the world.

English speaking problems being faced by Pakistani student?

Problems in Learning English for Pakistani StudentsEnglish is an international language and we (Pakistanis) have been learning it since the birth of Pakistan. We opened many institutions to learn English. We blame our education system. We blame our teachers. We pass metric and learn how to translate Urdu into English but we can't speak English in daily life. On asking we say that our teachers did not teach us how to speak English, we blame our teachers courageously and learn same English again in intermediate but can't speak English yet. On asking answer is the same. Who is at fault; Our teachers or students?

Our students are at fault. After passing a class we never try to read our books. Same case is after intermediate. I don't say that we should be a good English speaker. We become the student of B.A after spending 12 years in learning English. After 5th we start learning parts of speech and tenses and up to 12th we keep learning. But after getting the honor to be a student of B.A we can't define parts of speech except Noun, Pronoun,and Verb. In the seven years we bought many helping and grammar books to learn the same tenses which we are taught in schools. If our teachers don't teach us how to speak English then helping books are also unable to teach us English. The books which we are taught in especially (Punjab text book) or Oxford book I don't think that after studying them thoroughly we can't speak even broken English. But the problem that after passing a class our books become the part of either old book shop or shelves. If we ignore a human being for sometime, he becomes angry then what about these non living things. Another problem that we (Pakistanis) wait for readymade bread, we ourselves never try to do something so we buy helping books. After 12th we join institutes for language course but those who could not learn English and speak in 7 years, how can they learn and speak in 3 or 6 months. Spoken English environment, latest electronic teaching methods etc are just excuses. Thomas Edison was rejected by teachers but he did what he wanted to do and we blame our teachers.

Another thing that we have to take interest in English, because the thing in which we have no interest, how can we learn it. We take interest according to our desire, it means that it must be our desire to learn and speak English. I think Oxford Dictionary has more than 70% grammar structure in itself but only for those who are curious. There are many examples in our country (Pakistan) who wanted to learn English, they learned and spoke by only strong determination. Just by bringing about our determination we can learn and speak English. Now who is at fault our teachers or students? I leave it onto you.

What kind of things do you need to get accepted into Oxford University?

The question as to how to be accepted into Oxford is one which can never be precisely answered, simply because all students have different strengths. There are, however, a few key points in which you must succeed.

  • Top Grades - For British students, you will need at least 8 A or A* grades at GCSE to be considered for a place at Oxford. As long as you meet that requirement, don't worry too much about your GCSE grades; they are largely discounted as long as you have at least the required 8. Similarly, you will want very good AS level results - expect competitors for a place to have 4 strong A grades at AS level, with some science or maths students having 5 or 6.
  • Admissions Test - The majority of courses at the University of Oxford will require admissions tests before you are invited to interview. These include the HAT (History), BMAT (Biomedical Sciences), ELAT (English) and TSA (PPE, Economics and Management etc.). Scoring highly on these tests is what will qualify you for interview - a poor performance on an admissions test (if one in required) will mean that you are not considered any further.
  • Interview - Your interview at Oxford is the key point for your admission for an undergraduate degree. Your interview can be on a range of topics, varying between subject as well as college. You may be asked to provide a piece of written work around which you will have a discussion (similar to an Oxford Tutorial, if you are accepted) or else you may be asked challenging questions or given an unseen source to read.

What tutors are looking for in successful applicants is passion for a subject, an intellectual curiosity and simply the ability to perform to Oxford standard. Does being rejected mean you are not good enough? Certainly not - it just means that the Tutors felt that other students would be better suited to the teaching and examination style of Oxford.

How do you get admission in Oxford university?

Getting into Oxford University isn't some impossible feat that you need answering in a forum. The primary requirement is a high level of academic attainment; all other factors help but are secondary.

At interview what the tutors are most interested in is how you think and adapt when challenged. It's not about getting the answer right, though that is always going to be a bonus, but showing that you have ideas and can express them. This is of vital importance due to the tutorial teaching method that the colleges use. Consequently, the absolute worst thing you can do is say nothing.

If you are stuck or confused, the tutors will respect you for admitting that it. In that situation you can take one of two approaches, either say you don't understand and ask for the question to be rephrased or a term be defined - most importantly you should be specific about what it is that is causing the problem. Secondly, and preferably, you should say what you are thinking, and what could be the answer. From that point the tutors have something to work with and they will guide you to the answer, or ask questions that highlight where you are going wrong. If you are wrong then the questions may cause you to contradict your original answer, which is exactly what they want you to do, so long as you say why.

Essentially the key to getting admitted to the university is showing that you are someone that the tutors will enjoy discussing academic issues with week after week. If you are interested to do a doctorate degree then most of the time they also want you to come with a very specific idea about which area specifically (very specifically) you want to do doctorate in? You should be very clear and specific about the area of your doctorate.

Which is better Cambridge or Oxford University?

Oxford and Cambridge are practically the same in terms of academic acheivement: you can see this in league tables in which they're constantly battling over 1st, often separated only by negligible amounts.

So, when choosing whether to apply to Oxford or Cambridge, try to focus of other questions such as: Which University offers my course? Which course do I prefer? Which University do I feel more at home at? What extra-curricular activities are available at each University? etc.

Take some friendly advice from an Oxford graduate: pick the one which you think is prettiest. All colleges have good and bad points; you'll learn to live with the bad, and you will love the good. Clare is a particularly pretty Cambridge College; University is a particularly pretty Oxford College.

We humans are one of God's creations and are supposed to obey the ten commandments then why don't people obey the sabbath?

the sabbath is Saturday, the seventh day of the week, just like the Bible explains. Jesus, in the Bible sets aside this day as a day of rest. This day was "changed" by a Roman ruler by the name of Constantine. He wanted to pay homage to something or someone involving the sun, hence the word Sunday so he negotiated with some wayward Jews to change the Sabbath to Sunday, henceforth killing two birds with one stone. They decided to keep it a tradition and that's why uneducated Christians today keep Sunday as Sabbath. But even today most Jews keep Saturday Sabbath as they know it. We have not been excused from keeping Sabbath. The Bible states that none of God's word or commands will pass away until the second coming of Christ, and that means all of the Bible from the first page to the last, keep it, and if you already observe sabbath good, if you don't it'd be a good thing to start.

Some people still do. The "sabbath" is actually Saturday but when people do obey the Sabbath rule they do it on Sunday. Also notice how people pick and choose on what they will obey. For instance more people obey thou shalt not murder but will still commit adultery and they dishonor their parents. People just decide what they will obey. The Lord also says if you're heavy laden that He will give you rest - He doesn't say "but only if its on the sabbath day" ;)

AnswerExcellent question! This is a complex question and this is strictly only my opinion. The Bible was written thousands of years ago. Modernization of humans has come a long way and most of it isn't good. When life was slower people of the Christian faith did obey the Commandments and they did take Sabbath to heart. Sunday is a day of rest and still should be. Our world is so fast-paced and the way people have to work (shift-work, single parents, etc.) does not allow most Christians to take this time, but many try and quality of time with one's family is most important.

If we were to shut-down the stores on Sundays there would be a riot! While people enjoy browsing the malls they forget that everyone working there has families and guess what ... they're working! The greed, the powerful have taken so much away from us. Still, there are many Christians today that still try to hang onto the 10 Commandments and do the best they can. I'm sure when God created us He was well aware of where the world would end up. We can be what we want to be if we try hard enough and we don't have to follow the Pied Piper.

Things to PonderWhat does it mean to Obey the Sabbath? Does that mean do not work? What is work? Is driving a car work? If it is, then most churches would be pretty empty on a Saturday or Sunday. There was a time when they harnassed the horses on Saturday so they could drive to church on Sunday, because that would have been work. Christ plucked the grain in the field on a Sabbath and was condemned for it. But if working on a Sunday is the way that you can feed your family, is it right to deprive them of food? Is it wrong to be able to buy medicine, see a doctor, or just buy food on a Sunday?

If no one is supposed to work on a Sabbath, there are a lot of preachers that would have to change professions in order to support their families. My father was a minister. Sunday was his biggest work day.

Keeping the Sabbath is open to the interpretation of the individual. The key thing is to keep God in your heart, especially on the Sabbath. And never forget, the only interpretation that matters is the one that you reach with God. For he is the only one that can judge us.

See Related LinksSee the Related Link for "Which Ten Commandments ?" to the right for more information. AnswerOriginally denoting Saturday, the seventh day of the week, or, more precisely, the time period from Friday sunset to Saturday nightfall,

Sabbath is unique to the Jews of the Levant and based upon their (Hebrew) calendar, which is entirely different from the Gregorian calendar we are using today.

Sabbath in the Gregorian calendar can fall on any day of evry week.

And Friday nightfall in the Levant can be noonday in other parts of the world. Trying to reconcile Jewish Sabbath today is almost impossible.

AnswerFrom a Christian perspective, we are not under law but under grace and so the sabbath law from Exodus is no longer relevant. In particular, the keeping of the sabbath was given particularly to the Jews as a sign of their separation from the other nations who did not serve the one and only God. So the sabbath commandment was never given to all mankind to be kept, unless they became proselytes (i.e. joined the Jewish faith).

It is also interesting to note that of the ten commandments, the keeping of the sabbath is the only one not mentioned in the New Testament as being for Christians to observe. The others, of course are to be kept by faith, and not in the sense of a legalistic, works based system, but in love.

The first church council in Jerusalem, presided over by James, in Acts 15, dealt specifically with the keeping of the law, which certainly included the sabbath. The decision made by the Christians was that the Gentile Christians (all non-Jews) were to do certain things. The sabbath was most certainly not one of them. This pattern has been followed ever since by Christians who have always met on the first day of the week, Sunday, chiefly because Jesus rose then.

Sometimes there is also confusion between the sabbath and Sunday. They are two different things. One belongs to the Old Testament or old covenant, the other to the new. One belongs to the law, one to the gospel. One relates to a religion of works, the other of grace.
