    And this is BEFORE tax.

    I remember seeing a thread where most people seemed so confident in earning 100k by the time they were 25. Just LOL.
    Do you have any sources for these statistics?

    10% seems pretty low. I'd have put it around 20%.

    Since only 8% of undergrad places are Russell groups this is spot on surely!

    32.5% enter uni at 18 , so I think it's pretty plausible for a large portion of them to reach into that 90th percentile since most of the lower earners will be those who aren't studying for a degree. (I'm assuming you're targeting uni students since that's what most tsr users are aiming to do right?)

    thats on the high side, remember alot of those women graduating are foreign....

    i dont think british women are the smartest on the planet lol, up there but the whole global population about 6 percent are degree holders....

    I would say 35 percent of women.
    maybe 30 percent of men.

    Im just not buying this everyone has a degree uk stats.

    It's good to be ambitious, and I think most school children will quickly realise that in reality that sort of salary at that age is unrealistic lol

    this is a feel good number, lets take the business school at Nottingham where i attend,

    first year starts with around 700 students
    third year ends with 500 students...

    Did u know tons of people drop out during second year ?

    Something like 20 percent but no one takes this into account, and tbh Nottingham has good completition rates and generally semi smart at least students...

    These newspapers always paint a very rosy picture.

    Just because 50 percent start doesnt mean 50 percent graduate...

    loads drop out of the crap former polytechnics.
