    When you initially apply you'll be asked to provide your parents income for the 2015/16 tax year.

    If your parents income in the 2017/18 tax year is likely to be 15% lower than that amount then you then apply for reassessment based on what you estimate your parent's income will be next year. It's best to slightly over-estimate (if you under-estimate and then your dad gets a job earning a lot more than expected then you will be asked to repay over-payments ASAP).

    Applications for 2017/18 finance aren't open yet (and the deadline for new students will be end May usually) so you have some time yet.
