    Hi guys,

    Basically I have only just sent off my SF application for the means tested allowance, however I recieved an e-mail back student finance England that I've missed the deadline for the income calculated allowance so will only be entitled to the basic allowance for the first term. Not a problem, but what I want to ask is has anyone been in this possition and did you get your first terms tuition fee and maintenace loan through? I ask because my friend last year did not recieve any finance and wasn't able to go to uni :/

    Additionally, if anyone can comment, are SF quite good at topping up the ammount due? I hear a lot of horror stories about them being idiots and what not but I sort of will need the maintenance grant I'm entitlted to rather soon-ish.

    Cheers

    Do you mean the deadline for new students? I swear the application process only started on the 16th of March?

    You probably applied for the wrong academic year by accident. Get them to cancel your current application so that you can apply for the right year.
