    I've gotten conditional offers for universities, and i'm not sure when i should apply for student finance since i may not actually meet the conditions of these offers and not go to uni. By time i find out whats really going to happen it will be August, which i assume would be too late?

    You need to choose your firm and insurance. Then, you apply for finance for your firm choice. If you miss your offer you can then update this in August

    You apply for SF now, putting your preferred uni/course on the application. When you get your results, you can go back into your SF acvount and update it with the uni/course you actually end up at. If you don't get a uni place at all, then you just phone SF and tell them. They will suspend your SF application. Thousands of students each year end up at unis which weren't their first choice, or don't go to uni after applying. SF are very used to dealing with both situations.

    If you end up going to uni at any point in the future, you log back into the SF system with your current ID/password, and enter the details of your new application.

    Hi guys,

    I've just applied for my student finance, and it was far more painless than I expected!
    Here's a link to my review of the process: http://bea-blogs-life.blogspot.co.uk/

    Good Luck!
