Hi is there anyone that got a good student maintenance loan and still struggled to cover their living costs? Perhaps you applied to lots of scholarships/worked lots of jobs/took out private loans? I'm looking for case studies

Yes! I’m on the highest maintenance loan I own my own house and I’ve got 1 child, I have to put my child in nursery to carry on with studies but I’m only entitled to a partial childcare bursary which won’t cover 2 months worth due to my partners income which is under £17k, I've been paying it myself but I’ve not been paying my bills so I'm really behind but apparently that’s my given amount due to a threshold, I'm struggling to believe this is right because we can’t physically afford some bills
