    Just so people know, its easier to do it by paper instead of online.
    And here comes a 40 pages form to be filled in with lots of messing about with passports (am off on holiday so they best not lose it).

    At the end - as long as you haven't submitted - and you go into My Account it comes up with the application and a list of things you've completed, like the first one is Elegibilty something. Click on these and you can then Edit (bottom right of the new page once clicked)

    Interest from savings and current accounts. Do you have savings or not? If not just put £0. Interest from current accounts is so negilible no-one will care.

    Yeah I have interest in a savings account with national savings however its currently in the process of being shoved into a Cash ISA ... complicated lol. Are you sure its okay to not include interest from current accounts? And all this interest business... do you only include it since you have been 18 , as your only eligible to be taxed from the age of 18? Sorry if im talking crap!

    You can be taxed before you're 18.

    Well just put an approximate value of the interest you've earnt from those savings over the last year.

    Do you have a savings account? NOT a regular bank account, a specific savings one?

    So just work out the interest on it and put that down.

    Pick the first option.
    The second option is for parents/carers
    The third option is for someone who is a parent, but also is applying to student finance.
