yeah, BTEC ICT diploma dooda is = to 3 alevels. and it can convert into UCAS points.

I was looking at scottish unis'.. there's one that does the exact sort of course i want to do, game developing. 3 or 4 years.

and yeah nursers don't get paid alot.

It's midwife's we're definitly short on. And probably doctors, they all get fired to "cut costs". This is NHS speaking of course


£20 an hour? shikes. Not sure what ours are on

Of course, just doing a currency conversion doesn't account for differences in cost of living :icon_wink:

Your reasoning is, well, wrong. I sincerely doubt a correlation between land area and cost of living.

... I thought he was referring to land prices.. That land is cheaper in the U.S. than it is in the UK. And my response, that there is much more land in the U.S. is a reason.

..And actually the cost of living and the land value is related. The higher the price of land, the higher the standard of living. Look t NYC for instance. Small apartments in NYC are very expensive. The same size apartment in the city I live would be much cheaper.

So, actually.. It is you who is wrong.

Cost of living is always higher in cities. Why? Because there's money in cities. When money is more easy to come by, it's value decreases and costs increase. You go somewhere with less money, or to a relatively poor area, and the cost of living drops. Land value follows this trend for the same reasons. That's why a 2 bedroom rambler here in the city goes for $400k+ and a 4 bedroom place a couple hours away with a small acreage will go for $300k

exactly, so there is a positive correlation between cost of living and land value
