    Hey

    I've been having some trouble with applying for student finance online. I tried to apply a couple of weeks ago and when filling in the 'About You' section it kept displaying an error. Anyway I rang them up and they said the error should be removed in about 10 days. 10 days later it's still there so I ring again and they tell me there's nothing they can do so fill out a paper application.

    First of all, is there any disadvantage to using the paper application?

    Secondly, I can't find it Can someone help me please?

    Hiya - I'm having the exact same problem, it's doing my head in! Phoned them up and they said to do a paper form, which they emailed to me. If you don't me having your email address I could forward it to you?
    It's no good for me though because I'm not seeing my Mum for a while and I need her signature on the paper form - arrrrrgh!!! I hate Student Finance!

    It's okay now I rang up again yesterday and got a really helpful woman who gave me the exact web address for the form. Luckily for me I don't qualify for any additional help so my Dad doesn't need to get involved. Less money, but a far simpler form!

    I somehow submitted my application without adding my passport details or social security number...

    I rang them up and they said I should just do a paper application and put in the notes I messed up my online application

    1 disadvantage to using paper is having to walk to the post box instead of clicking submit. So for the average person, no, there isn't any real disadvantages.
