Put another way, 75% of students will be paying 9% tax for 30 years of their career.

What is there to wake up from?

Why are you calling people sheeple?

This fact was well known already as the report was from last year.

It takes years to pay off the debt, but if uni works out and you get a good paying job, the percentage of the debt you have to pay each month is so insignificant to what you are earning, it doesn’t massively affect you, and it gets wiped after so many years anyway. I’m not saying that the debt is good, but it shouldn’t be something that deters people from going to university in the first place

I honestly calculated whether it was even possible to pay it back because of the way the new loan paybacks work. And even with over 30k a year it only payed about 13.4k for the course of 30 years.
But didn't mention anything over 30k salary stuff. I doubt anyone i know will pay it all back.

Couldn't care less, universities should be free, if does not convince you then nothing will. The government more less pays it all and gets nothing back, although, they probably sell the debt to some shark.

Not really because many of those students will not reach the 75% threshold and then it is only 9% of the excess.

Not if you earn under £25k That's how I'll avoid paying my loan back... 30 years of £24,999 and THEN BOOM my £100,000+ salary comes in.

9% tax on income over 25k, which isn't very much when you consider the average salary is 27k. 30*0.09*(27k-25k) = 5.4k, i.e. you only pay back a fifth of what you borrowed

How is it even debt?

If you can't pay it back you don't lose your property. No bailiffs will ever come knocking at your door for SFE debt

Median salary for 2017 was £23,474, the average of " £27k " is inequality showing. The median is 50% above and 50% below, the average is just everyone added divided by how many people. Majority of people wouldn't even be able to afford to pay it.
