Okay, long story short, I'm assured to fail my third year for reasons I won't go into, and am not interested in repeating, because of this I stopped attending a while back and was intending to quit. Now, I've found out I won't be entitled to the maintenance grants from my date of last attendance, which is much further back than the date I actually decided to quit, and I can't afford to pay any of that back. So my question is: if I change my mind about quitting and attend the last few weeks of term with no hope of passing, will I be able to avoid having to paying the grants back?

No, because the grant is awarded for the whole year to September, not just the end of term.

Being in my last year, I didn't think that applied... Even if it does, my point is that I've been absent for a few months now, and was going to go ahead and quit. I rang up SF to enquire about starting a different course in Sept, and I said I had already quit, referring to the date I last attended, but I haven't officially quit with my uni because I wanted to find out about financing for another course first. This is when I found out I would have to pay my maintenance grants back. I can't do that, so I'm considering finishing my course (even though I know I won't achieve a passing grade), since as far as my uni is concerned I'm still a student there. So if I forget about quitting can I avoid paying it back? Especially considering I told the person at SF I had already quit (to avoid having to explain personal issues to some random stranger).
