Concession Evidence Discrepancy

Please note we apologise for a printing discrepancy on page 9 of our course guide.  To be clear, if you present an award letter that is more than 3 months old, you will also need to provide a bank statement to supplement this, showing current benefit payments.

•    An award letter issued within 3 months is acceptable on its own
•    A bank statement showing current benefit payments is acceptable on its own.
