Did you both apply at the same time, as there could have been a change in legislation since your sister applied.

Meant to say, hope your sister's better now, and it wasn't too serious.

katy,
I think it must, cause they probably figure its a second loan, either that or as she's older (I guess she is if she took a year out), she might be entitled to less. However, this is a complete + utter guess, based on common sense. If you don't get an answer on the forum, you could always ask the people you got the loan from.

Phil

P.S. It's always a good sign when your sister is acting *****y, as it means she's back to normal (he speaks from experience), though it is a pain in the arse.

because now she will get more money through the court. my parents are divorced and still biterly arguing over money, so the court decided how much money each month we get. so now she'll end up with more over all!! grrrr.

Hi Katie,

I think it is because she is older that she gets less because that is the same in my family. I get more money being the youngest I don't understand why though - maybe they think parents give more money to the older ones?! Though my sisters and brother would dispute that fact as they all think I'm spoilt being the youngest!!! But I'm not complaining!!

I think it's cause they figure that if you're going into uni older, then you probably have been working for a while, and so will have personal savings to put towards it.
I agree that it's well wierd though.

Katy - I'd quit now if I were you. Your posts are littered with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors - all of which, most universities would find unacceptable.

I see no problems with using short hand on these forums, obviously not so much so that posts are unreadable - ie text speak, but there's nothing wrong in using shorthand.

Another stupid comment from an unregistered poster.
