    Don't worry, I'm a man, I can take it on my own. Media Studies Graduates don't scare me - bring it on!
    Remember, a lot of these people are those that thought they could make a career out of sport but failed to make the grade...

    Now I'm going to get it...

    Anyhow being a thicky and getting a 2:2 i'd just like to say getting a first doesn't mean you'll be earning big money i'm on a good 5 grand a year more than someone with a first in engineering, so make sure you're not just brain and have some personality, not that i'm blowing my own trumpet

    It's strange but I actually feel a personal motivation to do well in my field of Engineering/Physics! I haven't really thought about how much I should earn... Maybe I'm just being stupid, we shall see :rolleyes:

    They taught it at school? Were you brought up on a hippy commune or something? :confused:

    We'd have a massively over-complex legal system with no-one to make it worse.

    Edit: Not sure if you're a pilot, they usually are quite forthcoming saying they are...not that they're arrogant...!
