It says: You are about to commence your 2nd year of Study at X. WTF!!!
It also said: Payments approved for every term so far.
Am I in big trouble? I definitely did not get in because I was rejected on UCAS and via e-mail. I've been doing my resits instead because I missed the grade by 2 grades. And I did not attend my missed firm for even a second. I also did not receive a penny so what is going on here? Is this a big mistake? I feel so scared and confused -- someone please help?
PS: Sorry about the rushed tone. I'll explain more if you want... I just feel so stressed now.

This is what happens when people don't tell SF that they aren't going to university. They will just assume you went but didn't take out finance as you never told them you weren't going.
You should call them to sort it out.
Oh, okay. It's definitely my fault then! Will it affect my funding? Or can I still sort it out? I'll call them in the morning as they've closed past 8 but it's eating away at me *sigh*. Thanks for the help.

i did what you did - missed my offer 2011, and then didn't realise i was meant to tell them.
they won't give you any money until your uni has confirmed that you're there each term. so they won't have given you anything.
when you phone them (which you should) they'll probably tell you to cancel your course online but you obviously want them to know that you haven't been there at all! the other option is filling this in and sending it: http://www.studentfinanceni.co.uk/pl...28-02-2012.PDF
Thank you so much! Did you get the same messages about starting the 2nd year on your SF application page as well? And the link you gave me doesn't say anything about "cancelling applications" so how did you do it, sorry?

That's a relief. Did you cancel yours by paper or online? And do you know what form you have to fill out? Aargh, I should started earlier! Oh well. Lesson learnt.
when i cancelled it was a while back (you've left it quite late!!) and when i phoned them they sorted it all out for me! but now they've got new systems where you're able to do it online.
i'm not entirely sure how as they didn't have that system when i changed it, but i think it might have something to do with the 'make changes to your application' link on the very first page when you sign in. when you phone ask if they'll talk you through it!
considering they surely want to lend us the least amount of money possible, they really don't make things very clear do they?!

Called them up and managed to sort it out. Turns out I should send a paper form and an explanatory note instead and that will overwrite my existing application. Thanks everyone!
Sorry, did they ask you to send the paper application form, then just a note saying you never attended Uni last year but the payments were listed on SF or whatever?
I'm in the same boat, so I rang up and she said she would fill a form out and it would clear the old stuff off within a couple of days. That was about a week ago.
