Also, I don't see the point of getting the 16-25 card if you've an oyster because you'll only get the student discount on a week/month/year travel card, not on payg.
The only worth in a 16-25 card is if you travel outside london a few times a year by train, and if you are doing something like this: get month travel card, then use payg during holidays, then getting another month card when uni restarts, etc.
That's incorrect. I can get an off-peak daily travelcard whenever I want with 33% off. It's valuable if you don't buy a season ticket.
Another key point is that PAYG on oyster between 4-7pm on weekdays costs more (a peak price) than a printed ticket with railcard discount!

Since your talking about railcards, when i turn 24 can I get a 3 year card or will they check that you're over 25?
You can literally buy a 3-year railcard on the day before you're due to turn 26 and enjoy the railcard benefits until you are almost 29!
1) Studying in London for 3 years
2) Want to enjoy 1/3 off my single journey tube (and bus?) rides
3) Want to enjoy discounts on my journeys from London to the airports or other places in UK
Would getting a standard oyster card and attaching a 16-25 railcard to it be sufficient? Or would I have to purchase a student oyster card too? (I do NOT intend to purchase weekly, monthly and annual passes on the London underground)
