    Hi everyone,

    I'm posting here as I've noticed the Student Finance England forum isn't very active.

    This year I received the following student finance (disregarding my tuition fee loan).

    £3,458 maintenance loan
    £2,984 grant
    Total = £6,442


    However, next year I'll only be receiving:


    £3,043 maintenance loan
    £3,080 grant
    Total = £6,123



    That's a drop of £319 for a reason I can't figure out. My household income back home is £0, therefore I receive the maximum loan and grant.

    What's even more annoying is when I use the SFE calculator to figure out how much I would be earning if I started my course this year (again disregarding tuition fee loans as that's irrelevant), I'd get the following:

    £3,823 maintenance Loan
    £3,354 grant
    Total = £7,177

    So people with the same circumstances as me, but are starting there degree now instead of 2 years ago, are getting £1,054 more in support?

    Gaaahhhhhh Anyone got any ideas about this?

    Is it your last year? Everyone gets less in the last year cos you are only financed to the end of your exams.
