I took out my student loan in 2002- so this is on the PAYE system at 9% over threashold.


Right. I am an hourly paid leacturer which means I get paid per teaching hour. Holiday rate is included in the rate so I do get paid for holiays but with my normal salary. So in the summer I don't get a wage (but would have been paid this amount per hour)


Now due to this some months I earn quite a bit and 9% is taken off the wage as required. Now because then other months I earn nowt, when the whole rate is caluclated against and devided by 12 it means i have ended up paying more.


This happens with tax and I get a refund.


I wrote to the student loans company but they will only refund where I should have paid nothing. Ie my year wage was below the threshold.


Now in 2010/11 I earned about £16000 just over £1000 over the threashold. However because of the reasons outlined abouve I was charged £342 student loan in total for that year. Which is way above 9% of about £1000. It is more like 34%.


Still the SLC refuse to pay this back- stating that they only give refunds if you were to pay nothing.


I'm going round in circles with them. I cant find an original loan agreement which may say they will take 9%.


Anyway I can't see how they can do this, HMRC Tax will recalculate on a annual basis if you overpay. Why wont the SLC do the same. Do I have any legal standing given the fact the % repayment each year is what I agreed.


Please help I am going insane! Plus this will keep happening year on year out!


Thank you
