Yes I did, I rarely used the Library though. I may have used it a couple of times for personal use, not help with studying. You don't need a Library to do well in your GCSEs/A levels. The internet is much more useful, and far more people have access to it.(Original post by alex5455)
well if you dont think there are bad schools you should really go to inner london or up north like they were in my area, where are all these "resources" you claim exist, my town had one library, that went years ago. let me guess you went to private school?
Around where I live, 42k will get you nowhere. And it probably gets even worse the closer you get to London. 42k after tax is closer to 30k. Say £1000 per month for the mortgage. Down to 18k. £100 a week on food and drink for a family of 4 is reasonable. That takes you down to £12,800. 2 parents getting to work. Let's say including tax and petrol, public transport costs etc. £70 per week. That now takes us to about £9,000. Gas, electricity, water and council tax. All adds up. Let's call it £250 per month. That's another £3,000. So now we are down £6,000.you are complaining some people only earn 42k which isnt enough to support a child through uni? the average wage is 25kish, these people have more money than most people can ever dream of earning
This isn't even taking into account miscellaneous expenses. Clothing, going out, maybe a small holiday. What if you need a new car? Car repairs, house repairs, maybe you need some new furniture. That could all easily eat up more than half of what is left. What if you want to save for your retirement? No use slaving away all your life if you don't have a nice nest egg to retire on. Childcare? What if you have some younger children? Childcare costs can run up to £150 per week around here. It really is not enough to support a child through university.
Should I still go?
