This week in the other place, while some students were accused of baring too much flesh and others locked themselves in cages, student journos and boaties have been celebrating confirmation of their long-suspected academic superiority…Brainpower and boobsCambridge’s publication The Tab has been stirring up national attention for its use of scantily-clad Cambridge models. Papers such as The Daily Mail, Telegraph and Guardian have weighed in this week on the debate about ‘Tab Totty’ that has been running between Cambridge women’s rights campaigners and the newspaper’s editors for months.The Tab frequently accompanies their pictures with statements such as the following from model Heidi: “I’d like to see myself as someone with brainpower and boobs, a pairing which I feel Cambridge culture strives to deny.” Such denial is surely one of the many concerns that will also be raised in Oxford during Gender Equality Week.Journos cleverest of all, say journosStudent journalists in Cambridge will be feeling pretty smug with the publication of statistics similar to the Norrington Table linking exam scores and extra curricular activities. The table, put together by Varsity student newspaper, rates student journalists as cleverest at the University; they achieve higher marks on average in finals than students of other curricular activities such as drama or choirs.Rowers were the second most academically successful on average, though they will be pleased to know boaties do achieve the most firsts. Actors came in third above choristers, but bottom of the table were members of drinking societies.Boaties put their success down to discipline and hard work being in the nature of a good rower. What it is about their nature that makes members of drinking societies do so much worse in exams remains open to speculation.Tabs in a CageOver in Kings, to the delight of Oxford many students, Tabs have been literally locking themselves up in cages this week. In a stunt on King’s College front lawn, students continuously occupied a wooden cage for 48 hours of last weekend. The cage was erected to draw attention to Cambridge University’s Amnesty International campaign to release Aung San Suu Kyi, a Burmese political prisoner.Unfortunately the tabs were released at 6pm on Sunday and now freely roam Cambridge once more.
