    This is a bit of a sticky one, hoping someone could enlighten me on this one. I've got a placement at Royal Holloway 2005 but I'm still not 100% i'll take it since my household finances has changed this year.

    What the 'problem' is, is that my household income has dramatically dropped this year. This will affect my loan and whether I get a grant. At the present moment in time, I am having to pay full tuition fees, receive no grant and get a fairly good loan. This situation is however on review since my finances are changing.

    Next year, my household income will be dramatically reduced. This will mean I am entitled to the full loan of £5.2k (I think) and about a grant of £2.4k. My question is:

    Does every single 2006 undergraduate have to pay top up fees? So despite of my low income, would I still pay them? My second question is, what are TSR user's opinions of taking a gap year so I would benefit from the above finances?

    Cheers

    oh, i see what you mean. Sorry i cant help. If you have applied for this year, and your situation is under review, why can you not still go to uni this year?

    next years finances sound awfully expensive in the long run.
