Hi all

I am coming up to my 3rd year at uni. I just recieved a final notification saying I would not be entitled to the childcare grant for the next academic year. I am confused because my childcare costs have not changed and our income is lower than any previous years. I contacted the LA who say it is right. Does anyone know how they calculate the childcare grant?

Entitlement to childcare grant is worked based on your partner's net income, less allowable outgoings. If you're then eligible, you are able to claim 85% of the costs.

Gross is for maintenance grant, and would be before deductions. Net is for PLA, Childcare and ADG's and is after tax and NI

I am a first year applicant and I have also received a final notification letter awarding 0.00 for CCG and PLA. Needless to say I have just got off the phone to SF and in attempting to cover their incompetency, they have requested 'further' proof in addition to the gazillion that I have already sent off in support of my application.

I dread the thought of having to deal with this year in year out for the next 3!
