    Depends what I get into:

    M&A Analysts make £50k+ as base and another £25-40k as bonus

    Associate Consultant/Business Analysts at MBB is £40-45k plus a smaller bonus of circa ~£5k

    Associate Product Managers at Google, FB. etc. earn about £60k plus £10-20k bonus

    These are all graduate salaries by the way. Competition for these jobs is ridiculously high but there's no shame in trying.

    If we're talking pipe dreams expectations then:

    A Partner at a Venture Capital firm averages £600k plus £1.5mil+ carried interest
    A high level exec at a tech firm gets £1-2mil

    Not at Uni yet, I'm applying for Comp Sci and Electronics at UCL, Bristol, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Heriot Watt (safe option)

    Tbh, I'm making nearly £25k (£50k projected next year) through running 2 companies, trading shares/bonds and consulting work for companies as it stands, so these figures are pretty reasonable for post-Uni. I'm only going into S6 (year 13) - I'm in a good position to leverage this experience, alongside a strong network to try and land internships/spring weeks while at Uni eventually leading to a job.

    I'm targeting jobs that don't necessarily require a specific degree; one in a numerate (or not if you go to Oxbridge) subject from a top school will suffice. It's mostly about presenting yourself in the best light possible and the only way to do that is to take initiative, find areas you are good at; expand on them. Don't forget to network!

    It took me all of 15 seconds to resize the window and delete the NI number.

    I'm sure a genius such as yourself could do it in a fraction of that time
    I wasn't aware that it doesn't take a long time to do that. Yeah... I'm currently, officially, 'thick'; I know I used to actually have the demeanour/stereotype of being smart too (at school, where I have an academic bursary)... Those days have long gone... Ah, damn, man... I've slipped so much in the last 2 years lol. I've got eight more months to turn everything round or be stuck out of the upper echelons and top earners (difference between BBB uni and A*AA uni)... Having some credibility, as I used to have, felt so flipping good...

    I'll learn to code and make websites and apps that'll change the world and make me rich, if all else fails. Or I could get a job in tech with my coding skills.

    One is in the elderly care service space/web service (providing an online subscription service to connect the elderly to sub-contracted service providers) and the other is in the retail/custom space - creating custom computers for people.

    Nice, you on an expat package? How do you like living there?

    My dad was posted to Saudi Arabia (along with us) for a few years and he was paid fairly well there too. Most of our flights, accommodation, school fees and more were covered - didn't like going out of the compound though, bar the enevitable dune bash.

    I turned down an offer of $250k a year to work in the Kingdom for 2 years working for a large security vendor as a contractor... the money out there is just insane, but it would have come with a big price in freedom and liberty for me at least, hence why even such a lucrative offer was not appealing. Some of my former colleagues have done work out there and loved it, others hated it.
