    I plan on applying for a Maths PGCE for academic year 2017/18, however I don't know what funding I'll get due to how much I've had already.

    In 2013/14 I was a first year and got full tuition and maintenance loan
    In 2014/15 I was a second year and got full tuition and maintenance loan. However I failed a module and so didn't pass the year.
    In 2015/16 (this year) I'm sitting a replacement module and asked for 1/8 of a tuition loan and a full maintenance loan, which I got.
    And in 2016/17 I will be in third year and will finish my undergraduate degree, again getting full tuition and maintenance loan.

    I've read that we only get funding for the length of our course plus 1 year, that means I've used 3 and 1/8 out of 4 years of tuition loan and all 4 years of maintenance loan. So what will I be entitled to for my PGCE year, if anything?

    Because it's a separate degree, the formula doesn't apply. That only applies if you've dropped out and restarted, which you won't be doing.
