You mean you don't ever expect to get promoted? Anyway, up north you'd be fine on that, but in London you'll never get out of housesharing with strangers. To comfortably rent a flat even in outer London, IMHO you need over £30k. I looked at moving there last year, and decided not to cause housing costs so much.

Dont want to be a teacher
I'm not saying you have to, but you thought teachers don't earn that much, but I showed you they do. Most stem careers will end up earning know than 25k a year. Because that's less than the UK average. And most stem careers are well paid.

If you do like a Chemistry degree, the average starting wage is probably around 23k+ (I haven't checked.) you can earn more than 25k easily.

Again if you're happy with 25k then take it.

I would've said a person on their own earning £20k was a good salary...

A lot of you are living in cloud cuckoo land.
Since its below average I can't say it's good. It's quite a lot below average actually. Average for full time workers in the UK is 26,500.

Starting wages on science and finance jobs can be anywhere from 25-45k and progress quite quickly.

That's just for chemistry.

I can tell you now if you study a good stem subject in university, and look for a job you will easily get one that has the potential to earn 30-50k before you're 30

A lot of good unis accept btec, Lancaster do. Even elite unis like UCL accept btecs for courses such as BEng engineering

Oh sorry, i must have misread something. Thought you were looking at London.

For the best choice of unis i think you need A-Levels. Can you still switch, even if it means an extra year at college? Universities don't care if you are 18 or 19 as long as you have the grades.

The UCAS tariff says how many points different courses are worth, and lots of unis set entry requirements in the form of tariff points. Some of the more selective will only consider a-levels though.

I think £1000000 or more is a good salary because it means you are rich and can buy what you want before retiring young.

£24k in Oxford, which is just enough to rent a flat. I'm not a graduate though. Still doing Open University.

Not sure what you mean about needing Bs. You didn't already take any A-Levels, did you? What I suggested is to switch from your BTEC course to some A-Levels.

What course u taking?? And im not doing alevels, you need grade bs at gcse in order to do alevels plus since my course allows me to do a degree in pharmacology, neuroscience, chemistry, biomedical science, biochemistry i dont see a point in doing alevels and retaking 1-3 years..

Fair enough, not knocking what u done. There's no deadline though, just keep that in mind. If (and only if) you need them for what you want, retakes are fine.

I'm taking IT & Computing, which is what I work in. Switched from admin work a few years back.

I need to decide what to specialise in. Now I just do helpdesk work, and my pay is decent for that. I'm learning programming though. It's not as hard as I thought, but I need to be good at it before anyone will pay me!

I don't know what you want to be, but something in medicine right? To be a doctor, I think you will need the A-Levels, and in that case it's worth resitting. There are lots of other good options tho. Pharmacy pays well and is secure I think.

Or think about working in IT support like me! You might have to start in a call centre, which is hard if you get bad shifts or you have to stick to a script and the callers get mad. But get experience and you can move on. Do you like technology?

Who your kidding XD Teachers= £21,000
Biomedical scientist= £21,000 / £25,000
Geneticist= £25,000 +
Other than engineering, medicine, optometry, pharmacy and dentistry what science careers are well paid e.g. pharmacologist, audiologist e.t.c.!
Fewer and fewer well paid pharmacology jobs. We take on pharmacology graduates at 18k and they can expect 25 in 4 years if they work V hard. This is in the pharmaceutical industry.

Where are you thinking of then? Keele would be pretty cheap to live at. Or would you stay at home and study locally?

There are training schemes that you don't need a degree for, but it says they are being reduced:
