    sorry im pretty certain this has been asked before but i skimmed through the forum and could not find anything.

    Which form would i need to fill out say if i requested for non-means tested student loan but now want to change it to means tested student loan?

    Also would i still be able to apply for the maintenance grant?

    you should ring them up and they can tell you what form you need.
    also you can still apply for the grant but if they give it to you it wont be until january.

    I did this last year. After applying for the non means tested i decided to change to means tested. I was told i needed to fill out another form including proof of family income. Ring up ur LEA and they should tell u what you need. Most of the time you can download the forms from the website. After changing I managed to received everything in time after enrolling. As your changing the amount you want it should not take too long, as long as you include the relevent docs.
