Letter: NSFAS confusion

NSFAS and Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande have been saying missing middle class parents must earn less than R600 000 per year to get funding.

My son’s application was declined because I earn more than R120 000.

I’m a widow with two children at NMMU and I don’t even earn half of R600 000.

My daughter has not received a response yet to her application. I’ve been calling the NSFAS with no luck for a week.

Where does the R120 000 limit come from? Can anyone please help?
