    I'm starting my A-levels this September at a new school - which is boarding and quite expensive. Only problem is my dad has injured his knee meaning he can't work like he did before (we don't earn that much in the first place.) The school I am going to gives bursaries - but is it now too late to apply for one? I got an offer in march but the school sent the letter to the wrong house, and so we're only discussing it tomorrow. Would it be late, and even a bit rude to ask if we're eligible? Thank-you so much.

    Someone with a similar experience might be able to tell you how their bursaries work, but ultimately it's up to your school. Apply or ask about it by all means - don't feel embarrassed to. Better than saying nothing about it.

    Your school website may have the details and any deadlines. They should also be used to emergency applications, so just make an enquiry. Phone is best if you want results, otherwise e-mail.

    Thanks for your reply. Do you know anyone with a similar experience I can ask?
