    There probably are plenty of these threads around but I thought I'd start one anyway, has anyone else had problems with student finance site already? I'm a new student going in September and I like to get things done straight away, surely the team behind student finance over the years have created a website that can hold a lot of traffic when it goes online? But apparently not. Vent your anger here I wanna hear your stories

    If you think its bad now you should have seen it 4 years ago. It could barely stay up for more than a couple of hours, in the end they just took it down for two weeks in the lead up to September as it was easier for them than keep trying to get it back online. The technical team behind student finance is completely inept, and bugs and mistakes have stayed part of the website year after year despite being reported them them multiple times by various people.

    If you're trying today then I think some pages are down for maintenance. Often the way on a Sunday. When I use it during the week there are no problems.

    ive just sat and tried and tried to get through because there was only the odd section i needed to do left, ive managed to do the lot and got to the end, however i dont know if ive completed the entire thing? i confirmed all the sections and the application said i dont need to send evidence into them. But on the main page where it used to say 'To be completed' it just says modify? surely thats it all done now? its just strange that where was no "congratulations" screen, just an acceptance of the terms, is this normal?

    I've been trying to get my password sent to my via email reminder for about 10 days now but no emails are coming through. I rang them and they said that there was about a 9 hour delay on electronic communication but it seems more like weeks. Seriously hope they sort this out before the deadline...Only filled in a tiny bit of the form

    Is it a hotmail address you are trying to get it sent to? They have had messages up about problems with them addresses in the past.

    Just apply on paper if you can't login, at least then you can complete it before the deadline.
