    seriously, sorry for the amount of forum posts tonight! i am just the biggest stresshead ever and i need some reassurance

    so anyone who is getting what the title says, and has the dates for their loan installment amounts for sept, could you tell me how much each installment is?? im getting the maximum maintenence and grant cos my mom doesnt earn much but it hasnt gone through yet and i am desperately trying to work out money (as you can see from the epic amount of posts i have done tonight!) so if anybody could tell me the installment amounts thatd be great

    the loan calculator says id be getting-
    Maintenance Loan - Paid directly to you £3497
    Higher Education Maintenance Grant - Paid directly to you £2906


    so basically i want the installment amounts based on those
    thanks to anyone who can help A STRESSHEAD!! X

    Ok I found it..

    You get paid 969.00 in 3 installments (21/09, 11/01,04/05) for the grant and for the loan it is:
    1154.01 in 3 installments (same dates as the grant).

    Hope this helps
