In sixth form I got EMA for two years, completed by A-Levels but got bad grades (B,D in English lit and biology and a U at AS math) and went to a community college thing and I'm doing a Level 3 BTEC in Applied Science (worth 3 A-Levels.) I got EMA for the first year of that, so 3 years in total. Am I still eligible for a Further Education Award even though I've had 3 years of EMA?
Edit: I worded the question badly, my EMA is now finished and I'm no longer in receipt of it. The Further Education Award would be for September 16- June 17 where I currently have no other source of income or funding *
What are the downsides?
