    right i will be getting insured soon on my car and i need to figure out how many miles i will be doing roughly in a car this will saved me a few quid on insurance and also money on fuel. heres my travel plans.

    travel to uni and back- 30 miles( since i dont know how many times i will be attending uni a week lets estimate for 5 days.

    and during the week i will perhaps just do 30 miles otheriwse for socialising and shopping or whatever

    so for a rough estimate could someone figure out how may miles i will be doing annually

    Over thinking it. Just go with the default option. I don't know anyone who actually counts their miles for this purpose.

    Do you know how many weeks there are in a year?

    Better still, do you know how many weeks there are, approximately, in 3 terms at Uni?

    I can't quite see what your issue is here, other than you have run out of fingers.

    So 180 x 52 = 9360 miles.

    But assuming 30 weeks of uni, more like 150 x 30 + 30 x 52 = 6060

    But I wouldn't worry too much about it being over or under, as really you won't know until you've been driving a few years.

    I put down 10,000 from year one and luckily it worked out pretty accurately.

    So you've learnt how to take control of a vehicle, but still haven't figured out how to count?!

    In fairness, you don't need to be mathematician to drive a car.

    Very true. I'd assumed that one was markedly easier than the other though...

    Subjective tbh. I find driving my car easier than I found doing my Maths GCSE.

    You don't need to lie to us all to make yourself feel better.

    It's quite clear that you're not going to University because quite frankly anybody who is unable to perform that simple a sum isn't going to be intelligent enough to get into any University in this country.

    average mileage is 10 -12 k / year so witha commuting to uni severla days a week pluse other driving, plus the odd road trip ... as others have suggested 10-12 k is probably a fair figure ...

    Insurers aren;t overly bothered unless you put 10k done and end up doing 30k esp if you haven;t declared business use ...
