    I've just upgraded to a student account with natwest, and I'm filling in the form to get my free railcard. I always thought that your UCAS number was the same as your personal ID, the ten digit number you get sent in your welcome letter. This form asks for my UCAS number but only has space for 9 digits? :confused: So, have Natwest got their forms wrong, or is there some 9 digit number somewhere that I don't know about?

    Thanks guys

    It used to be 9 digits. It was changed to 10 this year. Im not sure what you should do though. On my student finance form i added in the last digit. Which they seem to have ignored.

    EDIT: If you used UCAS autofil for the student finance form online they might have your 9 digit.

    They're outdated.

    The 9 digit one starts with 09#######

    The 10 digit one is the one you can see in your UCAS Apply

    I think you still have a UCAS number though as well as the ID because one of my accommodation forms has the number beginning with 09, i've put that on my railcard application but hopefully it doesn't make any difference :p:
