    Hi Im about to enter my second year of my degree. Im living at home in london.
    I reapplied for student finance as my parents are divorced and I no longer get financial help from my father. My mother is on a very low income right now (10-15k a year) and therefore I got her to support my application for a maintenance grant.

    She submitted her details and my application told me my payments had been scheduled and I was given a grant of 3k. However, a week later, my entitled summary has updated to a new assessment, taking away the whole grant and giving me the minimum loan! I thought I would atleast get a bit extra for a loan, but I only have a 3k loan scheduled.

    Do any of you know why this may be? I don't think its to do with me living at home because I think the grant is open anyone? Im going to call them tomorrow but any advice much appreciated

    also last year I didn't get application support so no grant. Could this be the reason? my course started in 15/16 so I don't think the new rules apply to me.

    Just sounds like someone at SF has misinterpreted your situation. Call them on Monday - you should be able to explain and have them sort it out.
