    Me and someone I've been talking to about student finance have almost identical parent incomes and situations and both submitted our applications. When I first received my entitlement summary it was the same quoted figure as theirs however a couple of days ago they were informed that it had been calculated incorrectly and their entitlement went up by a significant amount. Mine has stayed the same unfortunately. I'm not going for the "feel sorry for me, my parents make money and my loan is small" or anything. I just wondered if miscalculated loans ever end up not being fixed or anything since I find it weird that errors can be made in the first place, let alone two people with the same incomes receiving different amounts for maintenance loans.

    Is this something I should call up SFE about?

    Hi there.

    We can't check why the funding differs from here although you can certainly call our team on 0300 100 0607 to ensure your app has been assessed correctly.

    There are a number of reasons that the funding can differ out with household income such as living location, or even the length of the course you are each on.
