    Its a loan, most students take jobs under just to try and avoid repaying. This has to come from somewhere
    Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.

    Do you have any evidence whatsoever to support this, or is it just another in a long line of your bizarre posts?

    There's no financial reason to take a job that is lower paid to avoid paying any loan back :/

    That's the question, or is it your bizarre post with nothing to prove the other way?


    Not many pay student loans back, hence them getting tighter on repayment

    What? You said that students purposely take lower paid jobs to avoid paying loans back. Where on earth have you got this idea from? That's what agrinnall is asking.

    And in any case, why would anyone do that? Doesn't make sense financially to take less to avoid having 9% of some of it taken out of your pay packet.

    Not many? Any figures to back that up and a break down on qualifications?
