    Afternoon,

    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..

    Thanks.

    Hi Harry,

    The application is asking for your parents financial details from 11/12 (as this is the most recent completed tax year) but the rest of the application is referring to your sister's situation after 1 September 2013 so your parents should indicate what your sister will be doing at this time.

    They should therefore answer 'No' then 'Yes'

    Hope this makes sense!

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the help.

    Final thing, once submitted, the system says there is an error and to click continue. Once we do that the following are printed:

    "Application status Awaiting Further Information
    Your next steps We have all of your financial information at present and you are not required to take any further action."

    Surely they are counter-intuitive?

    Thanks.
