I am in the process of applying for student finance in England, and after sending my passport, they now want residency evidence, for the last five years, as follow:
- bank statements
- utility bills
- council tax records
- wage slips
Some of them I am not able to provide, as I live in a relatives house, but the others will amount to several hundreds of pages. Bank statements alone, for 60 months, 2, 3 or 4 pages a month, that is a lot of pages. Wage slips for 60 months, had 3 jobs for some time...
I rang the Student Finance helpline and they said yes, they need all that, but to be fair, they didn't sound very confident.
Is this normal? It seems very time consuming and I doubt anyone at Student Finance will have the time to scrutinize all the pages. Is this really needed? Any suggestions?

We require evidence for all 5 years. We accept p60's and p45's therefore if showing full time wage this would cover 1 year.
