In the same month that I took out the Vodafone contract I also entered into a “buy now pay 6 in months” deal with Argos, using the same logic as I had when I took out the Vodafone contract, which I have also been unable to service, and now have a similar indebted situation with them.
In the course of trying to service the above costs I was forced into acquiring a laptop computer, as my course deemed it necessary for me to have one, and my PC was starting to play up, and doing Computer Game Programming I could not afford to be without a computer of some description. This cost me £700 and took up a lot of my student loan; fortunately my parents were able to support me after Christmas by covering my accommodation fees and this at least allowed me to complete my first year without starving.
As I am now in 2nd year my costs have increased, having moved away from halls of residence, and the student loan it is only sufficient to pay for my rent and groceries.
Now after a year of stupidly ignoring the companies I owed money to (thinking they would go away) I am currently living on not much more than £10 a week trying to keep them from taking legal action against me.
My father’s job is currently under threat of redundancy, and my mother’s small business is struggling to survive the recession, so I cannot depend on them for financial support at this time, especially as my sister is also at University in her final year at Liverpool."
now based on the question asked io think that covers most of it. Obviously i need to indicate what i want them to pay. Also on the form it says i can take out up to £3500 each academic year. i am thinking no more than £1,500. About £1000 to debt. then £500 for food and general necessities.
