    Hi all,

    I'm a 1st year student about to send off my forms to Student Finance to get the loan for the second year. I had heard horror stories about lost information and delayed loans so I had a bit of savings which I thought would last me over the course of my degree (big mistake)... so I didn't apply for a Grant last time, I remember clicking the "basic" option.

    How do I (if it's possible at all), switch this so my loan for the 2nd year is income-assessed because my family's circumstances in 2009/2010 were a lot worse than in 2008/2009 so I think I would be entitled to something (which I desperately need).

    All I've been able to see is "new students", and the "change" forms don't include this option. I'm not sure if I need to write it anywhere on a separate piece of paper but the whole website is confusing. The "Ask a Question" has been unavailable for days so I'm hoping someone here knows the answer to my question.

    Thanks
    Alex
