    In September I'm starting a physics degree which involves taking a foundation year before I start next 3 years of the standard degree . On the sfe website it said my application has been approved and the maintenance loan will be £3821 . The problem is, both parents sent off their income online a week after my application, and our income should expect £6000-7000 in the loan . I applied for the maximum loan so I'm very worried , and apparently they've already sent off the post for me confirming the £3821. I hope it's just a mistake but what worries me is the thought that there's a reason I don't know about why they've set it to this amount? I'm going to ring them when the letter comes , but I hope they're helpful about it. Name:  image.png

    Does anyone have any idea why this may be the case that I've got the lower amount and if it can be solved? Thanks a lot. (Sorry if the image of my entitlement summary gets in the way)

    They won't have assessed the evidence yet, their computer system automatically gives you the minimum loan after a while until your evidence has been assessed.

    If you sent your evidence less than 6 weeks ago, i really doubt its the final assessment so i would give it a couple of weeks and then phone them to check they got your evidence to be safe.

    I sent my evidence 6 weeks ago and started my application 7 weeks ago, so will wait a couple of weeks , maybe I'm being too impatient haha. Thank you
