    Hi all

    Recently started the application process for student finance for 2011, but I'm having a problem with it.

    Basically, I should be enititled to roughly £4,500 for a maintenance loan (based on household income and me living away from home), thats what the site keeps telling me, but on my application form it keeps coming up saying the maximum I'm allowed is £3,564 which is the live at home amount. No where on the form have I said I'm living at home, I've said I'll be living away for all of them.

    I just don't know how to change it or whats gone wrong and it's so frustrating!!!! Any help appreciated

    Cheers

    Unless you are living in London £3564 is the most you get. The rest is made up by grant. People forget though that for every £1 of grant they receive they lose 50p of loan off the max. You can get a max grant of £2906 on top of the £3564 loan.

    The calculator on their website told me I was eligable for roughly £4500 for the maintenance loan, and £750ish for the grant. Not living in London.
