    Hi all,
    as im hopefully going to university next (academic) year, i was wondering how many people on here are in education, high school, uni, ect... so i thought i would set up our own thread, with uni based pc modding/building.

    So what you want to know is how many bit-tech members are students? Quite a few!

    Keep in mind that all modding/building related stuff goes in the modding/project logs section :)

    You forgot to use the outdated stereotype that we just sleep and watch Countdown all day as well.

    Alas, I don't expect you to watch countdown as you don't pay the TV licence!

    I pay for a TV Licence and I pay tax on my jobs that earn over my tax allowance. I also have £30,000 of debt and am paying interest on it.

    If it's ok to get a mortgage, or have credit cards, why isn't it ok to have a student loan? Is it because it isn't secured against anything or because you're delluded with the stereotype that all students do is drink and have fun?

    I worked damn hard at university and £3,500 a year to live off is near impossible, thus having to pay tax on what I earnt to live. 70 hours a week to study and work part time is what I used to do, like many others I can imagine. I'm not after any sympathy, but perhaps a little respect from people that haven't gone to universty. It isn't easy, it isn't all about drinking and I can't remember a day of my undergraduate days when I wasn't worrying about money.

    I'm also going to guess BRAWL that you're from Loughborough or nearby with an attitute like that toward students. I don't think you're trolling, you're using it as an excuse to give misguided opinions of 'tax-dodgers' and I'm f*****g sick of people who do it.

    I think you will find brawls wasn't being serious in the slightest and was attempting humour, by the looks of it not your sort of humour lol.

    Haha don't worry about it, I was just having a misguided rant about it. A lot of my mates here aren't students and I get a 'dirty student' remark quite often, it does wear think tbh. I could have taken an arrogant sarcastic approach, but I don't aim to offend.
