    so.... ive received a letter from student finance, and have to sign to confirm its all right etc, it says my tuition fees are £3225 and my maintenance loan is £3564, i don't know if this is right or not though, does this include the grant, or is it just the maintenance loan, in which case what the hell happens to the grant
    few points to mention:
    - my parents are on **** all so i should be on maximum amount
    - its means tested.

    I have this problem too, and so does everyone who applied for means tested help.


    What they have done is, they have got the non-means tested bit for EVERYONE out of the way first, and now they are working on the means tested parts.

    You will get another new assessment summary around the end of the month, with the grant etc. included.

    Don't worry =] And if you still haven't heard anything about it by the start of next month, then phone them - don't worry, it's not you who messed it up
