Maintenance Loan- What should I do?!

    Lots of questions about the maintenance loan here.
    Firstly, I think I will be living at home during uni, should I apply for a maintenance loan? And if so, for what amount?
    If I take the lower amount, should I ask for the specific loan, or the maximum £3039? I really have no idea how much I would actually have to pay for during uni, apart from travel expenses to the uni...

    Finally, suppose I should end up not going for this course for whatever reason and I end up on clearing, will I be able to alter the maintenance loan according to the new course I choose and where I will be living?

    Thanks, I know this is kind of vague...

    No-one can tell you how much you should take. It depends on you. Some people are on courses which are more espensive than other courses, some people have higher travel costs, etc.
