So, yeh, I'm probably not going to go to university, or atleast, not in the next few years. Kinda sucks, but it beats having an extra £18,000 debt than everyone who applies before next year.
Seriously, it feels like my year group are treated like the lab rats for educational changes. We were the first year group to make the change from Primary to Secondary school, instead of Lower, Middle and Upper schools, we were the first year group to be told that our SATs don't matter anymore, only a couple of days after we took the bloody things, we were among the year groups that they tried out "Media Studies" GCSE on (although I loved that one), and now, they're using our year group to find out if throwing you further into debt it going to put students off of university. Well, I tell you what, it's certainly put me off, and anyone who says it won't put people off can go shove a very large object into a very dark and painful place.

Welcome to financial politics: Where everything looks good on paper, but in the real world...

And yes, upper education is getting more and more elitist every year.

How the heck do they expect us to get a good job without proper qualification? We need money for uni, hich means a job, which need qualifiaction..and so on.

Qualifications mean nothing if there are no jobs awaiting you when you graduate anyway.
