    I went on the student loan calculator thing on the internet, and it seemed to think that I might be entitled to more than the the 75% non-income assessed bit even though my parents have a reasonably large income. I thought that if your parent earned over £32k or so you got nothing of the income assessed bit? Am I wrong???????

    yeh, maybe its like a theoretical maximum, but when you actually filled in the whole form and revealed that your parents were'nt war veterans or disabled etc. youd get a lot less. I filled in the form changing the income bit, and you still get some income assessed loan if your dad earns as high as £44,000, which seems very high.

    Are you going to London Uni's? That may be a reason why you are allowed more loan. Also the maximum loan for the 75% non-assessed is £3070 this year, rather than the £3000 you were allowed this current year. Otherwise I don't know why its telling you you're allowed more, as I thought the max household income was just under £32K as well.
