    When I applied for Student Finance it said that I was entitled to a student loan, a maintenance loan and a maintenance grant - I just got my letter through the post today and it states that I can only get the maintenance loan, it said nothing about the grant... what can I do? I don't think I could survive the year off of £3500 when I need to pay for accommodation etc...

    This has been covered SO many times on here in the past 2 - 3 weeks. It's because they haven't assessed your evidence yet, to work out how much grant you're entitled to. They'll send you another letter.

    I applied about 3 weeks ago; when my friend applied he got his assessment letter a week later then got his confirmation later (what I've got) detailing that he's entitled to the loans and the grant. I haven't had an assessment letter and I've had the confirmation letter...
