Okay so I'm a student applying for Nottingham Trent University studying Mathematics for a 3 year course. I also got accepted into this uni about 2 days ago. So Student Finance wanted evidence from both me and my sister to get the highest maintenance loan which will be £8,200 outside London according to the Maintanance Loan Calculator and over £10,000 for my sister studying in London. My Mother is mentally ill with Schizophrenia so she can't work so her income is £0. My Father also doesn't live with us.
So we then provide the exact same evidence of our income in separate envelopes and posted it to student finance. A month later, my sister gets the increased amount and mine doesn't change and remains at around £3,800. Keep in mind the total amount to pay for my accommodation is £5,600.56 so it's way off.
Could someone explain to me why I didn't get an increase to my Maintanance Loan and my sister did, provided with the exact same evidence? My accommodation and uni opens in a month and two days and I don't know what to do to fix this. Should I call student finance to sort this out? And will I have enough time to fix this?
