To whoever reads this.
Basically, I used to live with my Dad who was on a good income meaning my household income was only enough to borrow £3821 a year.
However, I am no longer in contact with him, and as a result, live with my Mother (my parents are divorced.) She owns her own business, meaning she is on no income, with her profit only being £1300 last year. As a result, she is able to claim NHS tax credits, child credit, and various other state benefits.
Yet, SFE thinks I do not need this. I have filled out the appeals form over a week ago and have had no word. I need to be able to borrow more to pay for college fees (I am going to Durham.) When will they get back to me, as I need to get it sorted out before 2nd October (when term starts.) I have only found the form for parents today, so SFE should get this by at least Wednesday. If for some reason SFE are reading this, please contact me.
As well as this, will I be able to claim a maintenance grant?
Please let me know guys.
... will I be disadvantaged?
