    Ah, I'm not that.

    So, do I have to give precise information on my parent income to get the max amount or can I just press the 'less than £45k' - or whatever it is - option and I'd get it?

    Your parent(s) will have to fill in their own online form with their income and connect it to yours.

    If you choose to be income-assessed, then your parents will have to provide their financial information and the SF assessment will be based on that. SF won't just take your word about your parents' income.

    Your parents need to provide information via their own accounts.

    I meant via the parent account, I'm not asking which account to do it on, I'm already on the right one.

    I'm asking would I still get the full amount if I just did the first part of the survey, in which it comes up 'Your child is most likely to get higher maintenance loan amount' and then rejected the offer to provide further information?

    No, all parts must be filled in to get the higher amount
