So, for the first 2 years of my degree, I received the maximum loan and grant as I am from a low income household.
My mother met a guy last year, living together, getting married etc. His income brings our household income up. My loan and grant this year is lower by £1000.
My mother will not support me as she has no money (low income family remember). Her partner obviously will not support me because he has no relationship with me, has not brought me up, barely knows me etc. So he is not willing to make up the difference.
So I am being penalised because of my mother choice of partner and SFEs assessment criteria.
Furthermore, I may also not now be eligible for the bursary from my University, totaling 1400. I'm unsure how much it will fall or if I get any. So I have lost £1000 guaranteed, potentially rising to £2400.
What are my options?
Fall in allowance, mother won't won't help
