    Help please! I'm freaking out! :s

    I only just realized that i have to update my SFE application and change my uni which was originally my firm choice to my insurance choice.

    Next Monday I have to go into uni with my SF notification letter for evidence in order to fully enrol, however, the letter i have at the moment is from months before results day with my firm choice university written on it.

    Now i have updated the SFE application about an hour ago and it says it can take up to 6 weeks or sometimes 48 hours...but I need the letter/evidence for Monday.

    Is it too late, will my application be updated in 48 hours? Should i contact my uni or SFE? What should i do?

    Thank you

    First of all relax and dont stress. Definitely contact SFE and they will advise you on what to do next, in regards to the 6 weeks it shouldnt take even a fraction of that time as youve already made an application so changing the unviersity is fairly simple.

    But phone SFE now

    I don't think it'll take 6 weeks hopefully, nearly all people student finance application will be completed, approved and finished by now. You may get it quicker than you think.

    Contact Student Finance as soon as possible.
