    Hello all.. this is my first post!

    I have very recently applied for my student finance and this week I have sent off my birth certificate and declaration of identity plus my parents p60's for proof of income.

    My question now is regarding a question that is asked to my parents on their account on the student finance website.

    There is a question that asks something like 'Do you consent for your financial information being passed between SLC and any universities for bursary administration purposes'?

    I think they may have rushed the online application form and therefore they have both answered No for this question. I know I am eligable for a bursary at my chosen uni and know that without this consent I will not be able to recieve a bursary.

    Therefore.... what should I do in order to amend this so they both answer Yes?? Should I get them to ring up student finance and try and change this answer from no to yes because the application is now awaiting assessment. I hope that that answer can be changed.. what should i do ?

    Thanks in advance !!

    Yeah, get them to phone up and explain to UCAS asap, or your info won't be passed on and you might not get your bursary in time.
    I'm sure loads of people make this mistake though, so don't worry!

    Its not UCAS you need to contact its Student Finance. They have a special helpline for bursary related matters: 0845 603 4016

    They should have no problem in checking what option you have selected and change it if you need to. I had to phone them last year after an error on the site led to it showing the opposite to what you had selected but it all showed correctly at there end.
