    I'm currently completing my student finance application, but it doesn't want to accept my passport number because it has a letter and apparently it needs to be "9 numeric characters" O_O

    What on Earth am I supposed to do!?

    All British passport numbers are 9 numbers.

    1) Are you typing in the right number? It should be on the top right hand side of the photo page.

    2) Do you have a British passport? That's the only other reason I can think it would be different. In which case, you can't enter your passport details online and have to send them your passport (and you might have gone wrong somewhere in the application because afaik you usually need to fill in a paper form if that's the case, because the online system can't handle things outside of the norm).
