I took a year off due to covid. Now i am going to uni next year.
My parents earn on the lower end and normally i would get a full loan for maintenance. Because i have worked this year our household income will be a lot higher and i will get a lower loan.

The income i earnt wasn't something i could save - we had lots of troubles due to covid and i had ot support my brother. I will have about 5000 left for travelling.

This will mean i wont have as high a loan and also wont get the oxford bursary/crank scholarship.

I dont want to 'get around' this but was wondering does this make me ineligible?

Your student income shouldn't apply to Student Finance's application. They'll only be interested in your parents/ their partners income. They don't penalise students for working before/ during studies. Not sure about bursaries if they take into account your own savings etc.
