    Hey i started university in september 2015. My dad lost his job in april 2015 but student finance goes off previous years income so i had to save over summer to pay for my accommodation and food this year. Im going to apply again now for student finance but it wants the information for 2014/2015 is there anyway to use the household income for 2015/16 instead as this is when my dad was unemployed? i don't want to spend another summer working to pay to live at uni! thanks for any help you can give.

    If its dropped by over 15% i think you can have it reassessed as a change in circumstances.
