Source: SAAS management information. Each student is counted once in the 'total award payments' row irrespective of the number of different awards they receive. For this reason the total number of students is lower than the sum of the number of students receiving support through each individual award. Cash totals may not equal the sum of their constituent parts due to rounding. Student numbers in this table have been rounded up or down to the nearest 5. 0, 1 and 2 have been rounded to 0.
