    I assume you're not at uni yet, otherwise - that's what the loan is for!

    (but as a 16-18 yea sucks a bit)

    EDIT - okay guys, I was only joking, my loan doesn't cover my accommodation costs either, we're all in the same boat here!

    It sucks a bit, but I do have enough money for things I actually need, and enough for clothes/cosmetics/socialising so long as I'm fairly sensible with my money I'm usually ok. (Although the reason for that is that I live off my loan and my parents pay my accommodation, and I'll pay them back when I'm earning properly. That does mean though that if I can get a job again this summer the money will be mine )

    Would that be because you buy too many books? :holmes:

    If you have £90 a week on top of your loan you should be managing fairly well i would have thought, I have enough money with no job at all! Don't be greedy

    Yes- but I also realise that once I'm paying rent/mortgage, bills etc I won't be able to afford things anyway haha.
