Hello, I got my entitlement letter for student finance on the 25th of June and it said I was getting £4,047 for my Maintenance loan and £3,387 for my grant. I logged in recently online which equals - £7434. I was content with getting this amount because my accommodation for the year cost £4,800 which is a lot. However, recently I logged in online to check and my student finance was reduced for no reason at all. I still have the letter which proves I was getting the amount I should be getting £7,434. They reduced my maintenance loan from £4,047 to £3,484 for literally no reason at all. I'm living on campus at a University just outside London. My mother is a single parent and definitely earns less than £25,000 a year. Any help would be much appreciated!!

There could be a number of reasons why this has been reduced. Check the correspondence section to see if we've written to you about this. It may be down to an overpayment from a previous year or your application could have been re-assessed.
