    I was told if i sent a letter to student finance that they would change my application to non-means tested as i dont want it based on my parents income anymore, it has been at least 3 weeks and i still haven't heard a reply and they haven't changed my application! What do i do now? Ive called the student finance help line and sent the letter and still nothing has happened.

    It will take a little longer than three weeks. Be patient.

    They told me it would be within a week though, this is why i am worried! Someones told me to wait another 2 weeks and if i still haven't heard anything to chase it up again. Its just frustrating they told me within a week when its been much longer than that. They should be more honest with what they can deal with.

    Something so simple as changing the application from means tested to non means tested should be able to be done on the actual application. Rather than having to send a letter.
