    Does anyone have any experience of funding twins through university and if this fact is taken into account when considering the calculations of expected financial support? According to the calculator we should have been saving £700 a month for the last 2 years!

    Does what a student earns during their degree affect what they repay after their degree? I can't find that in the research I've done.
