    Any budding economists out there willing to give an opinion? Are Cameron and Osbourne doing it right? Will graduates in 2015 stand a better chance at employment than those graduating in 3 months' time, or is there another financial crisis looming on the horizon?

    LMAO, coming from...

    "Hi there, long story short, I have 13 A level exams this summer because I slacked off and was way too lazy throughout the whole of last year and for January re-takes. It's definitely doable for me since I am the type that does grasp things fairly well, but I won't get anywhere without enough motivation to do well.

    I'm aiming for at least AAA to get into my first choice university, and thought that for not only my sake, but anyone else's, that people could use this thread to dump motivational photos/quotes, or anything in general that stimulates studying, also any study-tips you might want to share. http://static1.tsrfiles.co.uk/4.24/i...lies/smile.png

    In terms of tips to enhance studying, I'm taking one Centrum Advance multivitamin with a fish-oil capsule every day."

    Have fun with your 13 exams, and your Centrum Advance multivitamin with fish oil, I'm sure that'll do the trick.

    Motivational quotes...lmao. If you can't hack it on your own at A-level, god knows who's going to be there to hold your hand at uni. Think Solent might be a better choice for you than than Uni of.

    Growth is forecast to start picking up in 2015, so maybe. On the other hand, forecasts have proven to be pretty unreliable in recent years and even if the economy does start to pick up, it doesn't necessarily mean that will translate into graduate jobs.

    We have the potential of a triple dip recession depending on this quarters growth statistics.

    There is no government job creation strategy. There is large retailers closing down/cutting stores and public sector cuts are still on going.

    Straight forward answer very unlikely the graduate job market will improve.

    The more depressing answer is that chances are the job market will be worse and on top of that the quality of life for the majority of us will decrease as the wealth divide grows ever bigger.

    I have been unemployed for 5 months and finally got my first job interview for a part time job at Subway in an hour. 5 months job hunting which resulted in about 4 email responses turning down my applications (normally from grad schemes/entry level jobs) and 1 job interview. I really hope I get it.

    I hope you got the job!

    It's awfully grim isn't it. Just keep applying and hopefully someone gives you the chance.

    Personally, I don't think things will pick up until at least 2017.

    Very grim.

    Well they had over 100 applications for that 16 hour a week subway job and shortlisted to 6 for interview. I got the phone call to find out I did not get the job.

    Still at least it was good interview practice.
