    Couple of questions about the ol' Student Finance application.

    1. Should application be made before decision about firm/insurance choices is made?
    2. Interface gives me an option of a four or three year course for the particular course/uni I have applied for: does it matter which I pick now?
    3. At what point do I enter in details on parents? Do I have to "complete" application and then do it? How does this work?
    4. If I'm reasonably sure that my parents earn over the threshold for any kind of support, is it better to just apply for money w/out consideration of parent's financial situation?
    5. In the case of divorced parents, who "counts" as the people supporting me? Both of them? The one I spend most time with? What about their respective partners?

    Apologies if any of these are obvious or well-known questions. Thanks!

    1. Yes
    2. No. Pick 4 and change it later if you need to.
    3. After you have completed your bit and submitted it then your sponsor(s) can register themselves on the system and support your application. Or they can do it on paper (using a PFF1 form each)
    4. If combined household income is above £75,000 there is no point in having your sponsors complete the form.
    5. If they are divorced the income details which SFE will ask for would be from the parent you live with (or have most contact with if you do not live at home) plus their partner (if they live with one or are remarried)

    Re: 4. That's gross, not net income I presume? i.e. literally what their job pays them per year, before tax etc.

    Re: 5. Annoying: if only one could choose :P. Still at least all 4 sets of incomes aren't counted.

    Thanks!
