    Are they all claiming their full student loan entitlement?

    The parental income assessment makes a very small allowance for you having other students to support. From memory it knocks about £1000 off your income for each dependent (including students) you have.

    There was a blog Martin Lewis wrote about this ages ago; that the government doesn't make much allowance for this and if you have children with small age gaps they could well be at university and requiring support at the same time.
