    [...] Not that you care, but I'm not annoyed about being unable to get my application in on the first day- I know it won't realistically make any difference; I'm just irritated by the mess this whole process has been and how long it's taken them to resolve the issue.
    If you accept that the delay makes no realistic difference then why do you allow yourself to be irritated by something completely out of your control? If anything, you should look at the positives: you have had more time to get experience and perfect your personal statement.

    Hey I am waiting to send mine off but can't because one of my colleges is not on the list in the education section, and there is no button to add missing ones even though the help tool-tip says there should be!
    Anyone know anything about this?

    Also for the student support agreements do I put my location city or my parents seeing as it will be assessed against their income if it is anything like the undergraduate loans system?
    I also am not even 100% if I will be allowed it as I have already had several loans for switching Universities twice (even though I still only took a total of 3 1/2years loans/fees to graduate they were fussy over my last one, like a last chance type thing!)


    One more little question:
    For the earliest start date, I just put next month because basically I am free from now providing I can get funding sorted out, but courses don't start until next September right, so what is this all about?

    Thanks everyone, hoping to have this all wrapped up and sent off by tomorrow afternoon, and hope my references are on the ball and quick about it and I should be fine right?

    Re. the college not being on the list, I think the best thing to do is ring GTTR and ask them what to do. Once you get through to them, they can be very helpful!

    Because humans do get irritated and frustrated by things out of their control, I guess :dontknow: It's not like it's worrying me all day, I'm not wailing and gnashing my teeth from dawn til dusk. Just for short intervals every now and then. I'd already finished my statement when they opened the Apply site. Anyway.

    would you believe that after all the problems the reference form won´t accept my reference´s address. Another £10 spent ringing GTTR? looks like it...

    Sirwhale28, i had that problem when my reference tried to submit his reference. If you have any commas or full stops or anything in you reference's address the system wont accept it. So just go back and edit both your references address removing all puncuation marks and it should be fine !!
    Hope this helps !

    My reference address allows full stops as part of the room names for the lecturer's Uni address, and I have hit complete, does this mean when I actually send it it won't work?

    My university wasn't on the list either, the trick is to open the box (as if to search) but then close it, and the box should then become type-able in. All you then need to do is insert the dates and voila!
    As for the loans, I assume it means your local LA, which would be where you were living when you originally applied through UCAS (I think).

    As for the earliest sart date I put Sep '11 but I don't really think that should make a huge difference when you put.

    Thank you for that trick! It worked perfect! Why couldn't thay have made that clearer :mad:

    When I was with UCAS before I lived in a different city (my parents) I then moved, I have put where I am now if it is wrong they can sort it out! I can't see it mattering too much at this stage as they all provide the same support AFAIK.

    You will get a email from gttr and the pay and send option will become active.

    Grrr, I pressed the request reference button on Monday and my referee still hasn't completed it. This is despite me ringing him on Wed to try and hurry the process up and him being all apologetic and insisting he would do it asap! :stomp:

    so, I asked my supervisor for a reference, she said she will be happy to write me one once shes seen me a few times and seen me write up my research. It could be a month even before it gets written! I just want to get my application off now, this is so frustrating!

    They usually take about a week at the moment, but mine only took 4 days! You can log in to track without the letter though, just do forgot details! user = your email, password = same as apply, and id = same as the apply one.

    I am having a problem with entering a reference: GTTR sends 2 messages, with the same username, but different passwords, one of which responds with 'Invalid Login Details' and the other with 'Access Denied'. All my phone calls seem to get nowhere and this problem has been going on for 2 weeks.Does anybody have any advice?'
