    Everyone who has been messed around by SFE, please sign and get others to sign it too!

    In order to get a response from the Government, there needs to be at least 500 signatures...I don't want our struggles to go unnoticed this year!


    Thank you!!!

    I haven't been messed around SFE but I have been by Student Finance in Northern Ireland.

    Sent in finacial information with regards to my Dads business, including the business expenses, however they only looked at the gross profit rather than the net profit, so they sent me back information saying I wasn't entitled to any grant and only the minimum loan instead of maximum grant and maximum loan. I spoke to 2 people in the SF office both who told me expenses weren't taken into account, which is complete rubbish.

    Only after talking to my Library board was I able to actually sort the problem out....What a joke.

    I've been waiting to be assessed since February (still don't have the entitlement letter back, while others that applied after me have had theirs...) and have had all sorts of problems with the form, so I'll sign now.

    I did not create this petition, however, I fully support its aims. Whichever way you look at it, SFE is chaotic and there isn't any doubt about that. It is for the government to think how to change it. All we want is for them to make sure we don't have to go through the same s*** every year.

    You are entitled to your opinion.

    For all I know, it is better than sitting about, complaining and doing nothing.

    But even better would be some well thought through FoI requests.

    FoI? I already tried that twice. Requested information from SLC and got a reply only once, which, by the way, completely disregarded what I was asking for and pointed me to their website instead. :rolleyes:

    Petitions are an utter waste of time. Even those with MILLIONS of signatures.
    You should have all contacted your MPs. I did.
    He sorted it out for me in 10 days. Letters of apology from Minister responsible for HE and Chair of SFE included.

    I did contact my MP. Guess what good did that do? NONE.
