I just received the result of my Student Loans Overseas Assessment Form. I earn 42 000 € a year gross salary in France (32 341 GBP) and I am being charged 124 GBP a month in repayments.
This seems high, as according to the formula:
32 000 - 21 000 = 11 000
9% of 11 000 = 990
990/12 = 82.5
Secondly, does the calculation take into account national insurance contributions? Because from my 3 500 € month wage is extracted almost 900 € "charges sociales" which is the French equivalent of national insurance contributions.
Thank you for these clarifications.
