    I've been living in the UK for 5 years and they asked me for evidence so I send all the evidence I can. They send me a letter weeks after asking for more evidence between 05/04/14 and 06/04/16. In the same letter they said they accepted school/college diplomas, letters from teachers, etc. I sent diplomas from June 2014 to June 2016 which clearly proofs I've been living here during that time. I also included a letter asking to send me those diplomas asap.
    Now they sent yet another letter (without my diplomas as if they completely ignored my letter) asking for more ****ing evidence between 01/07/15 and 05/04/16 but this time they ask for bank statements, utility bills, council tax records, wage slips, p60's. I live with my parents and never had a job so I dont have any of that in my name. However I did use my mom's insurance number (since I don't have one) to create an account because I thought it was obligatory. Is that why they ask me for all that ********? And how do I fix it without having to call them?

    I really need the money because I'll be going to London and cost living there is no joke.

    I've had/have the same issue with them. 1. Sent them the declaration form. 2. Sent them two letters from my sixth-form, one from the sixth form principal and one from the attendance officer (just in case). 3. Later, I get the letter in the picture with probably the most ridiculous reason for my ineligibility ever. 3. I call them up to ask wth is going on, I get told the letter is incorrect and that I'm still eligible if I sent them the 'required evidence' I ask them what this is as it was not outlined in the letter. The chap (who was doing his best, bless him) told me that I am missing evidence from the 01/09/2011 to the 04/09/2011. I was stunned, the bloody pedants want evidence for four days? 4. After scouring the entire house in search of evidence I found one which I sent in 4 weeks ago, with no reply yet but my status has been changed from 'not eligible' to 'application submitted' I start uni in four days and they will want evidence of having a student loan.

    I'm now worried of not being allowed to enrol at university as I will probably not receive my letter.

    To answer your question:

    Yes they are.

    I'm not sure what else you can apart from keep at them. Maybe try citizens advice?
