    Just a quick question in terms of supporting an application for Student Finance.

    The "Your Commitments" section asks specifically about the financial year of 2011 and 2012. I have a sister who is currently in her last year of secondary school and will be starting Sixth Form college in September.

    Therefore, answering 'Yes' and 'No' to the questions listed below is technically correct, but on the next page it seems to assume that she has left education (but a year later 2013/2014) entirely by asking for an income.

    Do you have any child dependants not in Further or Higher Education? Yes.
    Do you have any child dependants in Further or Higher Education other than the applicant? No.

    Is the protocol to answer the above questions with 'No' then 'Yes' which will then allow you to place information about a siblings future education plans on the application?

    Unless I'm reading the entire thing wrong here..

How are you feeling about your exams?
