The money that you earned while working in the UK can be used for basic necessities. This is why The Home Office is adamant that you should have enough money to cover your tuition and living expenses.

So, if you did not submit your bank statement along with your application, you will be automatically denied. Ensure that you hire a professional immigration consultant if you do not fully understand the entire process and the necessary documents to be submitted.
