    I'm on placement next year, but I'll only earn £5,000 for the entire year. On the application page it just asks whether or not the placement is paid. Since it is paid but well below National Minimum Wage, should this be taken in to account when calculating my entitlement? If so, how do I go about this? and what should I mark under 'is this a paid placement' (with it being under NMW)?

    Also, it's asking me for evidence again (passport etc,) but this will be my third year that I've applied for finance... do I really have to submit my passport again? I don't remember having to resubmit it for the previous two years.

    Hi Matt,

    You will need to indicate that the placement is paid and this will be taken in to account even if you are earning under the NMW.

    No too sure why it's asking you for evidence, this could occur because the Passport details your originally provided have expired or because your studying a top up.

    Thanks,
    Mark-Lee

    Ahh yes, that could be it, I've just had to renew my passport so I'll send it off.

    Thanks for the reply.
