Thank to for the reply, I had heard stories of them fiddling with temperature settings to make things catch etc. glad it isn't the case.

At my uni in the UK there's no real jibes at all, only notice it with postgrads joining from Imperial where they just do STEM.

How real is Masterchef? As in, is anything done just to make it better TV/cause contestants issues to overcome?

I think maybe part of it is that you pick your degree before going so, for example, I chose chemistry. As we've two years of post-compulsory school prior to university you don't have to take courses outside your area, so you don't have say business students doing physics or a biologist struggling with history, unless they've specifically chosen those courses. Also there will usually be a list of suitable options to pick.

Of course there are still jokes and jibes but it tends to be lighthearted and reciprocated rather than coming from a bogus sense of being better.
