    Hi guys!

    I've made an error and im freaking out over it lol.

    I am doing an open university course and doing 60 credits this year so my loan request is around under £3000... However I was originally going to study 120 credits within the year but am now studying 60 credits so before this when I was filling in my application I typed in £6500 in the required loan amount box and today I received the declaration to sign and send back to them.

    I now understand that you have to apply for student finance each year, HELP please! What should I do???? Do I contact them and tell them that the loan request is wrong that I requested to high? Will I get penalized for it?

    Please help asap!

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    But because I put that as the maximum amount what will happen, do I leave it or do I contact them?

    Thank you

    I entered in 6.5k because I originally thought I was doing 120 credits in one year, however I am now doing 60.

    Just phone Student Finance and correct it. It's not the drama you seem to think it is.
