Do you struggle to pick which pony to ride to uni? Butler bought the wrong champagne to bathe in? Does your money pile get in the way of your diamonds drawer? If so, it looks like you’re not alone.

So it looks like posh students have migrated North in their masses – a whopping 3,495 privately educated students attended Manchester Uni from 2005-2007.
