2 ducks and a rabbi walk into a bar.
The rabbi enjoys a nice drink and the ducks are shooed out so that health services aren't called in.

Your college should be able to give you another one. I've not had to fill any forms out yet apart from the actual initial signing up for it.

Educational Maintenance Allowance, basically it gives ten, twenty or thirty pounds to you every week depending on your parent's income. If it's over roughly 30K a year you get nothing.

I'm not retarded, a chav or poor, but I still get it.

I'll be getting even more next year

Just go up to your tutor next week and ask if she can back-sign your sheet.


Thats what I do, and it works.

Nah, I'm kidding. I'm using mine to save up for a PS3.

I do know a couple of people that use it for dope, and it annoys me that the government is funding their addiction,

I've been paid two weeks now, when I should have another two, but it doesn't look like I'm going to get it, for whatever reason.

Although I didn't get mine last week.
I used the money from a fortnight ago to get pissed and I forgot to hand in an online assignment >.<

It pisses me off that people get £100 bonuses yet my parents could never afford to give me £100 three times a year or £10-£30 a week. Yeah, i get really bitchy about it.

And that's a bolton fan siding with a blackburn.

EMA is awesome

i think its stupid though because you could have a family with 4 kids to raise and have an income of 35 grand and they wouldn't get crap

ive already said i get it, but i do agree some of their ways of deciding who gets it are crap. Someone with 4 children on 32k a year is worse off than someone with 1 child at 25k a year.
Also, my friend didn't get it because his mom had a lot of money in a saving account. So, because his parents saved up for his university funding instead of going down to the pub every week, they loose out on EMA...

I loved EMA. I always got it, no matter how much I was in school, because my tutor always put me down as being there.




love is a dog from hell.
