I have been a member of the website www.thestudentroom.co.uk for several years now. It is a website with lots of information for anyone at school or university. The members of the forum on there helped me to choose my university, and have helped me with many aspects of being a student. The website consists of forums (which I use most) and articles. They are on many topics from homework help at GCSE level, up to help on choosing a university for your PhD, and money management. When applying to university, there are members on the forum who help you edit your personal statement, which is a document that each applicant much write, to tell the ... Read the complete review

A site aimed at students for the gamut of student related issues and those of adolescents and young adults.Personally I find this site to be one of the few places on the internet where one can have a semi-intelligent discussion, and free from the cyber fornication trolls that saturate the span of the rest of the internet. So far so good. The one problem is the moderation team. I have found their moderation strategy to be over-zealous, and based on personal grudges and general vindictiveness- just a straight out desire to take pleasure in targeting certain chosen individuals, nit picking until they are eventually relieved of their posting rights. Power corrupts and the people comprising The Student Room Moderation Team are no exception.

I tried to publish my negative views about UNITE (probably TSR biggest sponsor) and TSR deleted my review claiming that the review is not fair. I managed to publish the same text to a smaller accommodation and TSR accepted.

The Good Bits - There is a section where users can submit CVs or UCAS personal statements for appraisal by moderators (a service I haven't used). - There is open and frank discussion about coursework, exam questions and homework assignments as well as university entry tests - People discuss every element of ...

Advantages: Socialising, Advice from teenagers who lack experience in life Disadvantages: Stuck up moderators who refuse to listen to reason The Student Room is a website with a range of forum topics, and is aimed primarily at students though anyone can register. It claims to be free yet encourages a subscription to offer useless 'benefits', such as meaningless username colours, removing banner ads which can be done with a pop-up blocker, and many so-called convenient features that are not worth paying for. The forum itself often has students asking for advice or having a rant. Usually the responses given are sarcastic and ... Read the complete review
