    this is all i could find:

    tel: +44 (0)870 1122211, open Monday to Friday, 08:30 - 17:30 (UK time)
    email: [email protected] for an automated response with general information and guidance on the UCAS procedures.

    If you need help or advice on your individual application you should contact your careers adviser or call our Customer Service Unit on +44 (0)870 1122211. You can also write to us at Customer Service Unit, UCAS, PO Box 28, Cheltenham GL52 3LZ.

    I would call UCAS instead of e-mailing. It might take ages for UCAS to reply to an e-mail, but if this is a legal matter then it should be writing (letter not email).

    Yeah, well Chaleny just said she called UCAS about it and they said to call the unis -same as they told me weeks ago. So I won't bother contacting UCAS again, I'll just wait and see what the unis say... It is giving me lots of touble I'm horrified to be charged 11k or something

    3 of my unis have changed my code tho, one sent me a form to fill in to assess my status.

    Canterbury and Plymouth haven't replied at all yet. Plymouth were the one with the cloudy background I dunno why it's taking them so long, I thought they basically knew what they wanted ... Oh well....

    Is the UCAs number a regular telephone number or is it a service number? Like one that's more expensive than usual calls? Just cos when I called them, it did seem quiet costly :eek:

    :hugs: youll be fine......so far as i know, youd only be charged 11k if you were an international student, regradless of whether you were paying your fee yourself, or if an organisation was paying for you
    i think the only difference there is between private finance and LEA etc is just that if you put the former one in, you have to pay your tuition fee, an d i think are saying that you dont want any loans/financial support from your LEA.....which is what code 02 is, support from local LEA......
    anyways, lets hope this mess is sorted out quick

    an 0870 number.......not a regular number, might explain why you found it expensive...
