    Microfinance loans, people in LEDC's are some of the most trustworthy on the planet (avg. repayment rate of 98.6%) so your money is guaranteed plus interest and you'll be helping those much, much less fortunate than yourself.

    Don't invest in shares unless you really really know the company will make a profit. Ive just lost an absolute fortune and feel like crying.

    As title says....
    If anyone says 'Invest it in shares/bonds etc', this is only worth it if you have considerably more money to play with... and know what you are doing.

    Better answer, wait until your school has a dance/disco (whatever you kids call it these days) then buy glowsticks for ~100 per £5, then sell them on at 50p each or so. Maybe give out a few to the 'cool kids' early on to make sure people notice them to build interest. Maybe even get a couple of attractive girls to sell some on your behalf (on commission).

    Doing this you should be able to turn your £20 into around £100 relatively easily.

    This will work because people always buy inane crap in the name of having fun.

    This would not work on so many levels...

    Any clever person would have greened up for equal profit late on
