Hi I’ve searched the forum and can’t work out my own situation based upon posts of others so am hoping someone can help, I’m really struggling with the maths. 

 I would like to know if it’s worth paying off either or both of my student loans now. But I cannot work out if I will naturally pay off either loan before being wiped off or how much interest I would pay until wipe off dates for either loan.

Plan 1 loan balance £7589.64 interest 3.26% graduated July 2021

Plan 2 loan balance £7604.56 interest 6.3%  graduated July 2023

Salary £37,000 possibly to increase to £40,000 in 5 years 

Many thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.


  • There is a student loan calculator site that shows whether your debt will be repaid before it's wiped though the original plan 1 (the for people who started before 2012 in E&W), is a bit flaky. 
  • Thank you. I have tried that one as it lets you select plan 1 or 2, but there is no option for a combination of the two. Which has me pretty stumped, because it’s not a separate 9% of over threshold earnings each that gets repaid each month, it’s a combination.

    Does anyone know of a calculator that lets you input both plan 1 and 2?
