    Yeah, you'll have to call them and tell them it was a mistake. Should get sorted but they might send you a form to fill in to change it, they're not fast.

    They were terrible for me. Took about 2 months to process my first application, then 2 months to process extra evidence I sent them.

    I have done the exact thing except i have said that my mum is married instead of single, what did you go, did you just phone student finance and fill another form or did you have to write a letter, i plan to phone them in the morning to see what i need to do.

    I too am in a similar situation, I just got off the phone to them and the guy said just write a cover letter explaining the mistake and send it to the address you send forms to:-

    Student Finance England
    PO Box 210

    Call them and see if they can change it on the phone. If not then its a change of circumstances form.

    I received news today that my application has been successfully changed, so writing a cover letter works very well IMHO. I sent it off on the 1st Sep, but I imagine it was quite busy towards the start of term.

    Good luck to anyone else with these problems.
