    Hi

    hope someone can help. We have a case of a student who has chosen not to take a Maintenance Loan (she does get a student grant) – the regs say we have to take it into account even if they don’t get it but there is also a but( see CPAG book) which says if a condition of entitlement could not be met by the student taking reaonsable steps, we do not take it into account.( caselaw applies where a Muslim student said he was prohibited from aking the loan due to his religuious beliefs)

    I really don’t want to take it into account – has anyone found a way round it?

    thanks

    Dawn

    Barring a genuine practical reason for not being able to take reasonable steps (distinguished from a moral objection), I don’t see any way around it. Two case law decisions involving Muslim students both went against the students – CH/4429/2006 & CIS/2174/2005. I’m not aware of any contrary authority.
