When applying for Student Finance the calculator advised that I may be eligible for £5467 in maintenance loan as my income is low, I'm a lone parent, on income support.
I was awarded £3774 for the maintenance loan and £3387 for the maintenance grant. As well as the parent learning allowance and my childcare grant, Is this correct?
I originally applied for a Special Support Grant however that doesn't seem to be in place, I'm not receiving much more money from SFE now than I was without a child, but now I have 15% of my childcare cost to pay out of my maintenance loan and grant as the childcare only covers 85% of the cost.
It doesnt make sense.
Should I still go?
