    I'm stressing out a bit cos i keep hearing people who've applied for student finance.

    I need to apply for a loan to cover tuition fees but my parents are paying for living costs like accomodation ect but i thought you only apply after you know where your definately going to go, like not a conditional offer.

    But i've literally heard nothing about when I should apply and I dont want to miss out on anything I should be doing haha.

    Any help/advice?

    apply now if i were you. i started in feburary and due to several 'incidents' ( they said they didnt recieve my parents details when i sent it recorded deleivery, they said i needed additional information but there was no section on my account to imput the info) i have got no further ahead than when i started.
    oh, id apply for a paper application form- apparntly its easier than online
    you go to www.directgov.co.uk and follow the instructions from there, its quite simple to get logged on and such
    good luck!

    identity declaration form?!!
    is that just if your sending away information on household income? cos i'm not doing that
    I did the whole thing online and it seems ok...
    Ditto i did it online aswell, they require Birth Certificate/Passport - and identity declaration form.

    they asked me for my passport details and stuff but not my birth certificate. What's involved in an identity declaration form?

    But I'm guessing that if they didnt ask for that stuff then i dont need to give it and it'll all be ok, cos i know i filled in all the pages and stuff

    pffft lucky for you - you could choose either Birth Certificate or passport.

    You just need to get someone you've known for two years to sign it, someone in a respectable profession, so best bet is teacher or doctor.
