    The less you pay, the longer you'll be in debt.

    Well, I think that you should only do degrees if there is a solid career at the end, for example law. Or if you're extremely passionate about the subject... I'm not a big fan of those mickey mouse degrees.

    Except it gets written off if it's not paid off after 25 or 30 years.
    The less you pay per month, the longer you pay for, but the less you pay overall (generally speaking, not going to overcomplicate that with the small amount of interest on the loan)

    I could swear I heard someone tell me that you now have 45 years to pay it off, not 25 anymore.

    You've only got a 32" TV instead of a 50" TV.

    Fourth bullet point; it's 30 years.
    So a 5 year increase.

    If it discourages you from going to uni then you really haven't understood the reform.

    I wish it had come into effect years ago. I want a student loan

    Well, I know people who have lived in a cold house, at times they had no running water and no hot water regularly (they used a kettle to bath for a couple of years), they went hungry as there was not much food in the house, ect. Thats what I mean.

    Well people from a truly 'deprived background' (those on free school dinners) will be paying less than the current system, so no

    That's not deprived.

    That's just too stupid to claim JSA.

    People on JSA are rich.

    If you on JSA you ain't need to do anything.

    The government may as well deliver it in a big envelope on your Birthday saying

    " Happy Birthday Moth*r****er! Here's Some More Money For Nothing! Have A Good Day And Remember, Winter Allowance For Christmas, Happy Holidays ! "

    No one in this country should be deprived as benefits mean everyone has a way of living.

    £50-60 per week to sit on my ass. Sign me up right now ! I'll even sell my soul if I have to. That offer sounds to good to be true. Us working folk have to work 1-2 days to get that sort of money but I can get it without moving. Damn, this sounds so good.

    That's 21 pot noodles for 7 x 3 meals a week = £21
    That leaves me with £15 to spend on booze and hookers ( she may be an ugly hooker but if the beats all right she will dance all night ) - sign me up !

    Then I'll invest the other £14 into my new found tax free business I'm gunna be rich - won't be long before I'm in my Cadillac and you're paying your students loans back haha ! My rims just spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning!
