    The plans for tuition fees have been fluctuating between £15000, keeping them where they are, getting rid of them or somewhere in between for a while... I think we should wait until people actually make their minds up before panicking. But either way, if this plan comes into force in 2013, then I'll have escaped with 1 year's leeway (the last year of my degree will be '11/'12).

    I wouldn't change for people already in the system, only for people starting new degrees

    its really unfair because it hits the poorest the highest and does nothing for class divide.
    rich kids who already have their school fees paid, it will make no difference. but if you have to get out a loan then you might not bother and settle for a worse job
