    I am an EU national but been living in the UK for the past 7 years. I have proof of this in the forms of school/college attendance/enrollment letters. However, when i click on evidence for settled status on the student finance website, they give me options to choose from either original passport or original home office documents. Will school/college attendance letters be fine?

    Do you have rent/council tax evidence for your parents?

    School records aren't sufficient alone because your residency needs to be "not solely for education ". So while it proves you were in the uk it doesn't prove that you would have been in the uk if you weren't in uk education.

    Call them up and ask what evidence they need. Explain that your passport doesn't contain any stamps relating to your time living in the uk.

    If you've got evidence then you just need to work through the system in the way they expect. Sending what they expect at each stage so they move on to the next stage.

    Phone them up and explain the situation and ask them to explain what they need and when you need to send it.
