Well, many of us, ask that what does supporting document means?
Anything which support your financial status mostly account statement of three months. As fixed deposit is also a bank statement it should work. Besides parents close relatives can also support a student. If you are in hurry try to have atleast 2 months of statement, fixed deposit in your name. If they look for deposit information sheet it means the account details, your relationship evidence etc. The sponsor can write an official notary sponsorship and take a lawyer’s statement in it. Similar sponsorship could be seen in USA, Canada embassy.
