i sent my application off in april...and my parents sent their application off 14th july by recorded delivery

i still haven't heard anything from them apart from an email which i received on the 9th september saying they haven't received my parents application yet and that if they don't get it soon then i will get the minimum finance, and that if they had already sent it off then i should ignore the email. They said they will process my application in 28 days - i move out in less than 2 weeks

this is a pisstake...i know of people who have applied in august..and have been sorted out

anyway..just asking is anyone else still waiting to be processed?

i know there are loads of people not sorted out yet..but from reading the posts on here..everyone has heard at least sommething..most people have a payment schedule (even if it the money hasn't come yet when it says it should have) or have been asked to sign a loan declaration form or SOMETHING

i've got nothing at all so far

I applied around March for SF for my firm. Ended up getting into my insurance and sent off the change of circumstances form immediately. Still waiting for them to give me the new payment letter although I have a feeling it won't come until after I start uni....

I sent it all about the same time and was only told a few weeks back that I need to send a different type of evidence which I did over a week ago and now been told they have received it but they wont be processing it for a couple of weeks and again like you I move in just over a weeks time

Last year it was soo simple

Probably half the country. After they sort everyone out this year, they ought to get disbanded, and then the old system should be put back in place.

Well, that's something!!!!

I'll think about that when I'm starving and haven't got any money for food... Or when I want to buy books and have -£3 in my bank account! :p:

No but seriously, I'm lucky my Mum and Dad can afford to help me out until it gets sorted...

I'm waiting for the thing I'm supposed to sign. It wouldn't have been done in time if I hadn't got my MP involved. Even now, they haven't looked at my CO1 form which means my loan is still for the wrong amount.

EDIT: As a matter of fact, I just checked my account and it's been altered with the CO1 form. Good times. If you're still waiting I advise you to get your MP involved quickly. It seems they prioritise your application if they have MP's on their backs.

Basically they've got a back log and if you applied late you won't here anything until probably November at the earliest to be honest. I'm really surprised that I had no problems, so I don't know if it's because I was applying for finance for the 2nd time?? Not that I'm complaining, it just seems rather strange to me that's all.

I'm over the moon. I keep logging in and out coz I can't believe it !!!!! Applied 5 August and this evening status changed to "Approved- awaiting signature"...

Roll on registration.

To all those waiting, good luck. I'm sure all will be well. Also, use this number 0141 306 2000. No waiting whatsoever! Spoke to a lovely Scottish fella.

Good luck!

Process is sooo slow.

I sent off passport and P60 togther and a nice little cover letter to say whats included - they sent back the passport in a timely fashion.
Thought okay no probs they'll get that sorted soon enough.

3 weeks later results day - gained a place at university sent of Change of circumstances.

They recieved 2 days later changed on the system. I check if they've processed parents information after a few weeks - still no update WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!
