    On completing the student finance form for maintenance loan. It has given one low figure and one high figure saying Higher Rate Maintenance Loan. How can it give this figure when my parents have not completed there forms as yet? Or are they just giving this figure until there details are added and checked?
    Hi emilyvic,

    The figure is the lowest and maximum loan amounts, the Higher Rate Maintenance Loan, that you may be entitled to once your application is assessed on the household income provided.

    To estimate your entitlement you can use the Student Finance England Calculator, here is a link,

    Thanks for replying. I have been on the calculator and it says I should receive the highest amount for studying outside london and not living with parents. This is not the amount shown on the form it is much lower. But like I said before they don't know what my parents earnings are as yet so they cannot make a guess at a figure can they?

    Hi emilyvic,

    Once you provide your your parents financial information, you can be confident that you will be reassessed on the household income for the higher amount of Maintenance Loan.

    You will receive a new Notification of Entitlement letter, that will say this replaces any notifications that you have received in the past and your online account will be updated to reflect this.

    Thanks Rona
