    Hello

    I was on the phone the other day with Student Finance because I filled in my initial application in wrongly (I'm such an idiot). I had put down the wrong Tuition amount, so instead of counting the fees of the two modules I only counted one, so the amount is £2746 or whatnot which is half of what it should be.

    Ok so they told me to download and print off this Change of Circumstances form so I do that and it says I need someone from the uni to fill out one of the pages for me...how am I supposed to get open uni to do this for me? Well I phoned up Student Finance again today and they assured me there is somewhere on the website where I can edit the tuition fee amount, when I told them I can't see it anywhere they said I should just phone up open uni and they will sort it out for me...

    I have serious phone anxiety and I'm worried they are just going to keep sending me in circles I'll phone them up tomorrow if I can muster up the courage. I don't know why they can't just edit my mistake for me. gah..

    Has anyone else had this problem and can give me some advice? I feel as though I've left this all too late, I should've contacted them earlier but I'm a bloody idiot.

    Also, does anyone know where on the student finance website I can supposedly edit my applied tuition amount?

    Thanks

    The OU will have a student services office you can send the form to for completion - get in touch with them (via Student Home or on the phone).

    Just logged into student home and it says they cancelled my course for this year but I can apply for October one... I reserved it in October last year... only I could be so flaming stupid to let this happen in so annoyed with myself right now
