    it's honestly getting really irritating how you always ask everyone on this thread this.
    Sorry Sir.

    Does anyone of you understand how one should complete the financial profile?

    If so, would anyone be so kind to give me some instructions (I am a dependent student)? I am struggeling with the english expressions and I can't find good translations for them

    Is Salary (PAYE) your annual income in net or in gross?
    What does "private pensions" mean? And how is this different from state pension?
    Is private pension just the money you saved, so do you have to tell how much money you own in general? I guess state pension is the money you get from the state after you retired. Do you have to say how much money you (your parents) will get when they retire or do you just have to included that, when youre parents already retired and get the money right now?
    And what does "working tax credit" mean?

    Would be extremly great if someone could help me with all this and explain what it means, I don't quite get our german system but the english one is VERY confusing
    I would normally read SALARY as being gross pay ie before tax / NI and pension contributions.

    Pay as you earn (PAYE) is to do with taxation, it is where the employer takes tax off before you get the money .. happens to all employees.

    Self employed tend to pay in 2 chunks a year where they earn the money and then pay the tax later .

    Thanks! This sounds more like net to me, at least net like I would consider it in Germany

    Hey, does anyone know exactly why St Andrews talk so long to reply? My fee status is Home/EU and I'd really love to get in but I'm starting to get a bit worried. I'm applying for Biology and have no idea if that's one of the more competitive subjects.

    Sorry if this gets asked a lot! I just don't understand why St Andrews take several months longer than every other uni I applied to.

    They take longer because they only start when the deadline of Ucas, 15th of Januari, closes. Plus they have a big maybe pile which they have to work through. Hope you get in! Still waiting myself

    Just been rejected for Modern History. 10 A* 2 A at GCSE and AAAAC at AS. Pretty upset as it was my top choice after my Oxford rejection and this is just like the nail in the coffin now. Probably going to take a gap year and reapply, no idea what I'll do with it though.
    Good luck to anyone else still waiting, and it's been nice to meet you all!!

    a double rejection honestly sucks :console:

    You can travel and do a lot of wider reading in your gap year. If you can try to get work experience (maybe ask if you can volunteer at a museum or something) There are so many possibilities.
