Hi i recieved the same entitlement for my maintenance loan after resubmitting the appilcation a second time and providing a cover letter and council tax bill to prove that my parents are sperated and that my father cannot provide proof of income as he does not live in this country. Therefore my mother can only provide evidence of her income which she did but my father in unable to. The entitlement is quite £3000 and that is far too low to finacially support me. I would like to know what i can do to increase the entitlement.

First-year I was entitled way more than the minimum and now they have only given me about 1k above the minimum, which sucks as it's so so so hard to contact student finance and get a realistic response time. I've been on hold for about 40 mins now to probably be told that they don't know and that they will "get back to me"

Its also crazy that they expect parents to cover most of it, and for a student on a full time course to work enough to pay rent, study, and live a healthy life ahah.
If i were you, I would keep emailing and calling. Even put an appeal through, and apply for as many financial aids.
