    Ok guys, so I don't know if this is the right sections or not but too late now!!

    I have been browsing my student finance thingy and trying to work out a budget.. My maths sucks so basically, I need one of you clever nerds to double check it for me...
    (For installment 1... 21st September-11 January. 16 weeks. I worked it out for 17 weeks to have emergency money left over!)

    Incoming:
    -Loan: £1335.51
    -Grant: £1129.00

    (That's £2464.51, right?)

    Take away my rent (£1442.42)

    (That's £1022.09 left, yeah?)

    Divided by 17 (weeks) = £60.12 per week!!!


    Please tell me I haven't totally messed this up!

    Also yeah that maths sounds right.
    I've got a google docs excel spreadsheet of my yearly budget if you want a template to go off of.

    Edit: just realised this was for first instalment and not the whole year :' ) so if you saw my comment on how cheap your rent is, ignore it
