    basically I want to know if the plans to change repayments will affect me or will it only apply to students of the new increased fee system? I heard they plan to raise the amount you start repaying to £21k or something along those lines - I kind of chose to ignore it when it was all on tv

    The changes made will effect different intakes in different ways.

    For students who started uni pre '98 there is no change.

    No it shows that it'll be uprated against a different metric - hardly a crime, you were contesting the uprating not the metric (since you didn't specify) and you were wrong saying there would be no change.
