    Hello

    I have just received my letter back from student finance england and I am a bit worried about the numbers I see! My loan is a LOT lower than I expected and there is NO mention about a grant. Will I receive a grant on top of my loan or not? The letter says 'The total amount to be paid to you: £3699' but no mention of the grant plus my estimates say I should be entitled to a lot more. Anyone shed any light on this?

    Thanks

    Probably you forgot to say in the application you wanted to be judged based on household income. Ring the student finance helpline and explain to them.

    It's with household income taken into account

    I'll have to phone them and see what I can do

    You might get another letter once your evidence has been looked at, taking in to account your income. This is usually what happens.
