    In short yes, however its not as simple as people think, you get different types of chav its just more often used to describe the poorer bad people its more people who are chavs have no respect for others and feel entitled to things at other peoples expense.

    In both my opinion and experience many students fit the chav profile as they do things like disrespect other people, property, get drunk and cause damage to property, get into bad debt with little intention of paying it back. and think they are better than other people.

    The only major difference between the two is the poor chavs get money from the government in benefits and the students get loans and parents to pay for it

    So the other short way of saying it is in the simplest term its based on social classes.

    Take out the part about no education and you could just as easily use that to describe many students.

    Except these days instead of weed students use legal highs.

    Then perhaps the many students are the very chavs we are speaking of

    Joking aside, I get your point. I'd say that one of the things that distinguishes chavs from humans is their mentality - a persistently suicidal, insecure, bleak, futureless existence forces them to seek immediate gratification and leads to senseless violence and petty criminal acts. They don't appear to possess the empathy, or indeed the self-control, that most people enjoy.

    Hostile and abrasive economically disadvantaged people who, for a multitude of environmental reasons have given up on/been given up on becoming independent, responsible members of society. I would say their defining characteristic is a complete lack of self-worth which they attempt to camouflage by being outwardly aggressive.
