I'm appealing my student finance decision as the amount deemed was too little to cover even my rent.
I was first asked to apply as an independent and provide my proof of earning documents. They were not sufficient as there was one year where I was out of work for 3 months.
I was then told my parents could fill in a PFF2 form as they would not be able to fully support me through uni.
I was under the impression that because my evidence as an independent was not proof enough for a higher loan, that my parents could support my application with this form and that may help increase my loan amount.
I have now been told that it's not an either/ or situation.
I was under the impression that since my initial independent appeal was rejected, that I could apply as a means tested candidate, in fact, when i rang about this, the gentleman on the phone told me that, with means testing, I was entitled to £2000 more.
Now I'm being told that I still need to provide proof of earnings as and Independent Candidate AND a PPF2 form from my parents.
If one appeal was already rejected, why do I need to appeal again on the same basis?
Being asked to provide both means testing and independent evidence
