OK, so I'm getting confused about these loans and things. I'm at college this year, not school so
there's no helpful UCAS coordinator person to unconfuse me..

So I've sent off my big complicated loan form, and I reckon I'm going to get the full thing cuz
we've not got alot of money, so that's about £3815 isn't
it.Tuition fees are £1100, my accomodation is about £1900 for the year.. that leaves me with about
£800 to entertain myself for a year.

But then I started reading that little financial help book or whatever that someone sent me when I
applied for something, and it seems to say that cuz we're poor, someone, like the slc or the
government or something, will pay my tuition fees and then I'll get a full loan on top of that.

So which is it? Do I have to pay the fees out of my loan and starve, or do they pay them for me so I
can eat and go out and stuff..

They make it so complicated.. bah

<snip> as i understand it. as your getting more than the minimum (75%) £2930pa. your tutition fees
will also be lower. basicly, after you've sent off your HE1 and HE2, ypou'll get a form back saying
how much your tuition fees and how much you loan will be.

hope that helps

You probably won't have to pay tuition fees if you've "not got alot of money," leaving you with a
much more reasonable £1900 or so to play with.

Ah I see. Yes, that is right. That's what I'm getting. Full loan + paid for tuition fees. If you
work over summer then you can afford lots of luxuries as well.

And don't forget THE STUDENT DOES NOT PAY THE TUITION FEES IN ANY CASE. The fees are £1100, which
will be met by some combination of your LEA and your *parents*. The loan is for YOU. It is not meant
for paying tuition fees with.

when you get your final decision letter from the LEA this will inform you of how much tuition fees
you/your parents have to pay. I got mine about 5 days asfter posting the HE2
