    i am finding it hard to find anyone who is counted as 'professional' but isn't a family member. I know a few people such as my uni tutor but she hasn't known me for more than 2 years. The only people i have come up with is the pastor at my local church, though he doesn't really know me since i haven't been to church for ages, and some of my teachers from sixth form.

    I am in my 2nd year at uni now so i don't know if asking for a countersignature from one of my ex teachers would be okay, not sure if too much time has gone by. ex-teachers are my best bet, I got on well with them all and some had known me for 5 years or more. my sixth form tutor would have seen me basically ever day for around 2 years.

    however, it also says that they have to know you at a personal level not a professional one- and in that case i'm not sure that a countersignature from a teacher would be acceptable

    I would imagine it depends how well your teachers know you. There's no harm in contacting them and seeing what they say?

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
