    Hey

    I applied for student finance a number of months ago, I think I was entitled to a lot more.. but I logged onto Student Finance and saw that:

    My payment timetable for loans and grants will be:

    Around £1,179 per term!

    This is way less than expected and pretty much just covers my accommodation, not even that!

    So I'm pretty much ***** if I can't get a job, and is putting me on the bare minimum...

    What gives?

    EDIT:

    No grants on my table on SFE website at all!!! Only my loans...


    Doesn't include my long-distance travel I as supposed to be entitled to!

    No student gets travel money on a normal SFE loan application
    Did you apply for an income assessed loan and send in all the evidence?

    Yeah

    I was entitled to a maintenance loan and maintenance grant

    Only the loan appears and it says they've sent out a declaration to me

    They probably haven't income assessed you yet.

    They really messed up mine a couple of years ago and it took 6 months to sort out. Best to keep ringing them, you will get through to them...eventually...

    Good Luck, they usually get it right in the end.

    So I rang them up and hmm...


    Dad had to speak to them which he did, gave them details they had already recieved, nothing about a new declaration being sent out, I'll give them another call tomorrow to see where I stand.

    Frustrating!
