    Hello,
    ive applied for student finance under the long residency criteria;
    and everything else has been sorted apart from they are requesting me to show proof of residency from 03/11/2006 to present,
    so far i have given them everything from 20/11/2006 till present,
    they are now requesting residency evidence from the 03/11/2006 till 20/11/2006,
    i have next to no evidence for these dates as i was around 9/10 years old with nothing to my name, and my parents werent receiving and benefit or child benefits for me.
    i came into the country in 2004 and i am 19 so i DEFINITELY am eligible under the half life criteria, but i don't know what i can give them.
    WHAT DO I DO?

    Im not sure about gp, but i wasnt registered with a school at that point no!
    Why do student finance request things that are impossible to obtain at that age!

    If you were registered anywhere official then you could get a letter from them, did your parents get benefits in your name at that point? Their just quite strict on making sure people are entitled to it.

    No we werent unfortunately, and they didnt claim anything at this point!
    If i was to get school confirmation letters that i attended school before these periods ie 2005 - summer 2006 , and an explanation as to why i dont havent any residency evidence for these dates as we were between houses, would that be fine?

    I was wondering, if i send them school comfirmation letters Prior to these dates, and my native country passports with only one stamp on which is date of my entry, and also took it to the appeal stage! What would my chances of being accepted be?
    I literally have no evidence for these two weeks and its be a shame if that is what stops me from attending university

    Ive just realised that i was registered at a gp on the date needed. But they do not accept gp letters as they can be easily constructed, would medical records showing gps registered at be sufficient?

    They have said that they wont accept it as gp letters can easily be forged, but the gp is the only thing i was registered with at the date requested
