    Okay basically, I don't know if this is a error on the website to be honest but basically I'm going onto my second year uni this September, and I have obtained all my financial details off my parent's to start typing the income on the form online but it wants my financial income from 2011/12 and I've already used that information for last year though ? Does anyone understand what I mean now and could please help me?! websiteClick image for larger version.

    So they're asking you for the same information you used last year?

    Are you sure you submitted the 2011/2012 info last year? I mean, congrats on that time machine if your financial info for 2012 was available to you in 2011

    EDIT: Sorry, it says 2010/11 in the screenshot, I see the problem now

    It doesn't say either, so I just assume it's both, plus I'm from England regardless.

    For last year it was 2009/10. This year it's 2010/11.

    When SF opened for applications tax year 2011/12 hadn't yet finished (it would have been April 2012).

    This is always the way it's done.

    If you entered details other than 2009/10 last year then you either got a current year income assessment, or, as I'm guessing, you're mistaken.
