    I have just applied for student finance. My mum recently passed away and i dont know who my father is. I'm worried because I'm afraid I've chosen the wrong box which is 'Both parents have died' when it asked where my parents are as i felt it was the most appropriate but I am not sure about my father. I live with my grandfather now who helps support me. Have I ticked the wrong box? Is it too late now? Please help!

    You may be better off phoning student finance and explaining the situation.

    You could argue that your dad's dead to you, but my condolences for your mum

    I'm sorry to hear about your Mother. I've moved this thread to Ask Student Finance England, you should get a reply form someone from SFE here. It might be an idea as Tiger Rag suggested and to give the finance people a call, they should be able to help you out.
