I had been given apparently the 'maximum' amount of maintenance loan, although I have a household income of £70k , I am living away from my parents outside of London in Scotland. I am not supported by my family financially and I am having to work hard for the money. I spoke to SFE and I have told them that my friend in SFNI has had been given £6,500 whereas I had been given £4,600. Her family has a larger household income where hers is around £120,000 and mine is £70,000. I know I shouldn't be complaining with how much I get, but I only get £50 from my family and that is an emergency just in case I ned the money. I am also a Nursing student and I have overall 2,600 hours of placements to get through for he whole 3 years of University and I am not able to even work at least 3 times a week because I am having to cover a full time-job for placements with no payment. I find it unfair and what should I do because I know that I should be entitled to more moaintenance loan, or am i wrong?
