    Usually everyone gets around 3000 pounds bit you can get more once they look at your finances. How much you get depends on how much your parents earn. You need to send them proof of their earnings. I'm staying at home and I feel like 3000 pounds was enough for me so I didnt pick the option to get more and send proof.

    This.. You must have clicked the option to not undergo a finance check, either that or your friends have been lying and their parents earn more than you think. On the Student Finance emails and letters it should explain how you can get in touch to have a finance check.

    Should be less than you think, not more. If they were earning more the loan amount would have gone down, not up.

    Part of it depends where you're studying.

    Take a breath.

    £3821 is the minimum Maintenance Loan (studying outside London, not living with parents). It indicates that your application has not been assessed on your parents' income. Either you accidentally missed the income assessment option off your application, or the income assessment process isn't yet complete and the £3821 is an interim entitlement which will be increased.

    Phone SF and get them to check your application. If you did not choose to be income assessed, then they can tell you how to get this underway. If you did choose to be income assessed, they can confirm that this process is still in progress.

    Have your parents been contacted for their income info yet?
