This is probably bit of a weird question but basically...
...although having supported myself for three or more years, Student Finance have decided that I haven't earned enough to be self sufficient, therefore given me pennies as opposed to my original estimation.
I called them up and was told the above and the person I spoke with suggested I did my application as means tested on my parents, even though I haven't lived with them in nearly 5 years.
My application has already been sent on the basis I am independent and I am yet to find where I can change that aspect and allow myself to input my Mother's customer reference number, so she has someone on her account to support - and then do so.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

PFF1 forms, which are in the Forms & Guides section of the website.
For information though, the regulations do not specify an amount a student has to earn to be classed as independent, and they should've assessed your individual circumstances. I would therefore make a challenge, citing Schedule 4 Paragraph 2(1)(k) of The Education (Student Support) Regulations, as the regulations overrule any internal guidance SFE have.
