    So I got my entitlement letter through and it says I've been awarded the lower maintenance loan amount but none of the higher amount? I applied for this and my parents filled everything in. I was expecting around £7,000 based on our income and research I've done, however now I don't even have enough to cover accommodation. Someone please help? I might not even be able to go to university now. Whilst on paper our family earn £43,000 per year before taxes, we're in so much debt that our outgoings are wayyyyy higher than our income. Do I have the right to appeal?

    Have you definitely had your final entitlement letter?

    SFE like to reassure applicants that they will get *something* by notifying them that they'll get the basic amount while their household income assessment is carried out.

    Ring SFE and make sure that your household income has been assessed when deciding on your entitlement.
