    Upper class. Family, childhood experiences and what my folks do for a living (though my parents' jobs would probably fall under upper-middle class).

    Middle class, probably. My family has two cars, I'm going to university, I eat hummus...I don't get this class thing really

    I'd say I'm working class, because I was born into a working class family.
    I will always consider myself working class, even though I have a bachelor's degree and I am currently studying for a PhD.

    Middle class I guess, my parents don't earn much but they're well educated and both come from fairly rich families.

    I think probably middle class but I'm not really sure. I'm privately educated and my family is by no means rolling in money but I guess we're pretty well off.

    Isn't it traditionally that the working classes did laborious jobs, such as in a factory, middle class people did intellectual jobs, doctor, engineer, accountant and such, and upper class did no work at all, but simply inherited all their money?

    I think in contemporary society it's pretty hard to judge 'class' really... There are so many factors that are not as often relatable as they were say 200 years ago.

    I'm not sure where I fit... My great-grandmother was in 'who's who' (a horribly elitist book of posh people). 21 of my mothers 23 cousins achieved firsts at university and a lot of them went to oxbridge and are in what are considered quite 'high powered' jobs.

    BUT I had a state school education, my mum quit her job as a bank manager to become a childminder so that she could be a stay-at-home mum and we don't live in a 'posh' area (lincolnshire). Oh and we're pretty left-wing.

    Probably lower-middle class? :confused:

    EDIT: Maybe a poll might be useful if you're really interested in finding out?

    I'm a student and I don't wish to categorise and limit myself to a social class. Thanks.

    ***** please.

    Haven't got a clue; couldn't give a toss because I'm not self-concious of what class others perceive me to be.

    We debated this in Sociology a few weeks ago, and according to the Government I fall into the 'lower middle class' because my mum is a teacher, my dad is an IT manager and we have an above average household income. To be considered as the 'upper middle class' your parents have to be in jobs such as a lawyer, doctor etc. If I was to judge what class I was myself, I'd probably agree with the above because both of my parents went to uni and we've always led a stable, 'middle class' life.
