    how much do your parents want from you?

    Save as much as you possibly can and spend as little as you can stand to. You're going to need the money for uni!

    it would help if we knew how much you are earning.

    i would say a fair amount to give to your mum would be about 20% not so sure how much she would want.

    then spend as little as you possibly can, and save the rest.

    Hard to say, really hard. I think a ball park of about 30 per month which agrees roughly with what loopy kitten said. that leaves what... 1300 in total savings for uni. Unless you want to spend a little in which case it will go down.
