    HI,

    im stuck! i can usually figure these things out myself, but this stupid form is messed up.

    ive done my student part of the application, but for the parents support applic where it asks for students alias ID and DOB, each time i type it in it doesnt work. it keeps saying alias ID or date of brith incorrect aaahh! i tried it 10 times, i know im putting the right alias ID in, i paste it right from the applic page, and i know my DOB....

    this happened to anyone else?

    and where is the webchat thing???

    Hi the same thing happened to me and it took me ages to figure it out....if you look at the email your parents should of received it says that they get sent the Alias ID once you have sent your application off. I'm guessing this is where you (and me) have gone wrong. so i'm gonna finish mine and get it sent off...see if that sorts it out

    I just did my app. My personal entitlement bit says:


    Means Tested or Non Means Tested
    Maintenance Loan Tuition fee Loan
    3559.00 GBP 3225.00 GBP
    I want to apply for more, taking into account my household income

    But where is the grant and max loan? Does this update when i send off my p60s for the last 3 years? (im independent)

    Did anyone not put their national insurence number in the application?

    As I lost my NI card and just found it now. Should I go back and put NI in? or just leave it? I might just leave it as it didn't stop me from going forward when I didn't put anything in that bit.

    Thats one of the most important things they need. They won't pay you the loan unless they have your NI number and can verify it. They use the NI number to take your repayments from you when you earn over the threshold.

    @ J90, yea it worked fine. its a bit obvious when you think about it. your mum and dad have to register an account each seperately, and then click on support application to fill it in. cant do it from your account.

    That will be why it isn't working. Your application is not actually in the system yet for your parents to link to it. Plus the Alias ID is different to the ID you use to login. This will be given to you when up submit your application so make sure you write it down.

    I really do not understand this. Everytime I try to enter in the ALIAS ID in the Support an Application section it says it is incorrect. But it is not. Or do my mum and dad have to set up seperate accounts in order to do this. Please help.


    Thanks

    Your mum and dad have to make separate accounts, or you can get their forms sent through the post if they'd rather fill them out that way.
