    ok, so i am in year 11 and i just realized about this tuition fees fiasco is going to effect me hard, because this will take effect in 2012 (i think) and when i finish my a-levels(hopefully)this whole thing is going to come right on my face. to tell you the truth i did no about this situation in the news but didn't take notice until my friend told me this will effect me DIRECTLY and i am not rich, so shall i do? shall i do something now about it?

    i know i am not the only one out there, but lets just say its for everybody in this situation and are asking these questions about their future.

    please don't put hate comments if i seem stupid or whatever,just help me try and give positive advice.

    Thanks!

    You will hopefully still get a loan to cover the cost, so it is pointless worrying. Plus you'll also have the advantage of only paying it back when you earn £21k instead of £15k as it is currently.

    There are still grants, student loans, and help available. If you're very poor, you may get the first two years free. Also, you don't have to pay it back until you earn over £21,000, and the repayments are very low, so you should be fine.

    It's fine, go to uni being loaned the full amount, then pay back a small amount back each year which you won't even see as your employer will deduct it off. You will actually have more disposable income per year under the new system than someone earning the same amount under the old system so pros and cons etc!

    Please don't let the fees put you off; if you can't afford to pay it back, you don't pay it back. It's nothing like a mortgage when men come around and take away your DVD player and then you lose the house. Nothing to worry about

    like everyone else has said you still take out a loan. You dont start paying back until you earn 21k not like the 15k it is now. The only difference is you will be paying it back for longer.

    Like others have said, it's not all bad as the point you have to start paying it back is £6000 higher.
    It will be affecting me too, and though it is rubbish, it could be a whole lot worse. Hey, I might just go to drama school or something, the price difference isn't so much anymore :P

    Silly, silly child.
    The "government" is not investing in anyone,- it the the tax payer. Do you think this money just appears?
    The current system means that current tax payers subsidise half of the cost of tuition.
    You're so typical, you silly silly person.

    Please understand the situation and keep clam, you lose all credibility when you throw a tantrum.

    Grow the hell up.

    University is an investment in yourself, and hence therefore, the tax payer is allowing the investment to take place for everyone still, just when it pays off, you start returning the cost of the investment. Do not forget how systems in the US operate,- there is very limited government/tax payer support for students.

    It's a progressive and fairer system. £300,00!? Where are you getting the figures from? You sound like a broken record, this is not going to be the cost of anyone's loan. Anyhow, even if it was, it gets written off after a number of years, and is paid back in small amounts, £9 in everyone £150 earned over £21,000. I'd say that is a far investment.

    Remember when you say "the government should...", it's tax payers money being used.

    The grant is being increased,- this is direct help to the poorest students. THE POOREST STUDENTS GET THE MOST HELP,- It is the middle class who time and time again lose out. "Rich Pigs" has nothing to do with it.
    My Dad pays high rate tax, but does not have enough money to pay my fees,- I won't get a grant and will get limited support from my Dad who earns over 60K a year,- might sound like a lot, but a household earning £22K a year with receive more support than I do,- i'm not complaining, I know that this is fair.

    Also remember, it is the GRADUATE who pays, not the student.

    So... those more able to pay back the loans will be paying them back. This policy will mean that only those that benefit from the education (those that become richer) will be paying more money. How does this justify "death to the tories" (being an economically left-wing policy in real terms)? It just means the money will be coming from those that benefit rather than other taxes.
