    Hello

    I'm not due to go to university until Sept. 2017 and as such I won't be apply for student finance for a while yet, but I just have a small question.

    I know that maintenance loan is calculated based upon household income - before I was fairly certain I would get the maximum loan as I don't believe that my mum makes /that/ much money, but a few weeks ago her boyfriend moved in with us and now of course that means 2 sets of incomes.

    Is he counted as part of our 'household income' (I assume yes but I want the answer to be no...) because I'm quite concerned for the future in case I don't get a high enough maintenance loan, because I know that neither my mum or her bf will give me money towards university.

    Thanks for any help.

    His income will be counted, yes. It's based on who you live with.

    Eughhhhhhh for God sake.

    So is there realistically nothing I can do? Because beforehand I was probably going to be eligible for the maximum loan amount and now I won't be; depending on how much he actually earns I really don't wanna be screwed.
