    i applied for student finance very late this year (last week due to retake) i sent my application by special delivery last week and have not received anything back yet.....
    i start uni next week and was thinking of changing my current account to benefit from an overdraft but ive been told that this could take a few weeks to get sorted.....should i bother or just wait for the finance?

    Just becasue you sent it special delivery doesnt mean you'll get a quick reply, just means they recieved everything faster, it may take a while for you to get any letters and I wouldnt expect to get your money for a while.

    You could open the new account, wait till your first lot of loan comes through, then move it too your new account and close the other one.

Do you like carrot cake?
