I lodged an appeal 14 Oct after I was immediately refused funding on applying , I've just had a second email same as the first saying
'We are experiencing an increased number of appeals and it is taking us longer than we would like to respond to you. Please be assured that we have received your appeal and will be in touch as soon as we can.'
I've not even had an initial letter yet saying why I was classed as ineligible for funding, So I emailed an appeal, is it normally such a long process ? and should I have had an initial letter 5-10 days after applying for funding saying why refused?...it's been 6 weeks since I emailed an appeal!
Kind Regards Trevor
