It's been a long time since I did my application but I don't remember entering information about the households income I think that was left for my parents. Erm, tbh I don't really know what you can do except nag them A LOT, but as I said a lot of people are having problems with it so hopefully it'll get sorted, afterall SF have a reputation of being disorganised and unhelpful(Original post by Elle J)
That's why I'm worrying, I've sent back the contract (twice, they didn't seem to get it the first time...) and I just keep seeing the bit that says "Your assessment status is final".
My parents are going to be emigrating in the first few months of next year and have been quite clear they are not going to be helping me financially because they cannot afford it.
Without that grant - which I am entitled to - I will not be able to afford my accommodation. Instead I have to hope that I don't get into my firm choice (University of Sheffield), simply because the accommodation for my insurance (Hallam) is cheaper.
I think it's my fault though. I didn't enter in any details about household income because I assumed they would get that from my parents...argh! Thanks for your reply though
/EDIT, just seen your last post, have they sent the documents you used as evidence back or have they still got hold of them? If you've had them returned maybe it'll be a simple case of just sending them back and hoping for the best. I have heard that SF have a backlog of applications from June or there abouts... but good luck with sorting it! x

Mine was always taken out by direct debit, seemed the less hassle. Also you don't have to worry paying it as long as you keep an eye on your account. This year my house rent is way more than the loan, so it looks like job hunting for me once I get back!

I had to pay off the excess at the start of the term. The rest got paid off as soon as the loan came in
