    I've been put on hold for half an hour now. Got a letter saying they will only give me a loan and not a grant so I have something to start with because I haven't sent all the evidence when we have!!!!! If they don't sort this out then no uni for me. *******s.

    Is it just the case that they have't got the evidence yet? That's what's happening with my application.

    I agree though, they are *******s.

    It seems to be a total ****-up. My parents have sent in all their information, twice, and I got the exact same letter from them, saying "still awaiting information" or some ********, and so have given me maximum loans. Argh, does this mean I have no shot of a grant?

    I sent my confirmation three weeks ago. I got a letter yesterday saying they had no received my online confirmation form (There was never one referenced, and I cannot find any mention of it anywhere else) and enclosed another copy of the same form I had already sent them.

    I called them and they said "Oh we're behind so you might not have been processed yet"

    Way to put me in limbo.

    Ok, I got a confirmation form for me being non-assessed although I want to be assessed. I sent off evidence a couple weeks ago so I hope they get it .

    I'm tempted just to sign the non-assessed form ...

    Can someone give me the number you have to ring to actually speak to a person? I've no idea how far along the process I am. I've filled in all my personal details, and my mother has sent stuff off, but apparently she still needs to fill things in online. However, when she goes online and puts in my alias ID it tells her that it's incorrect and she can't do anything. It isn't incorrect because it's the ID they pissing well emailed her themselves. Any help would be appreicated. Is there an actual deadline for getting everything sorted?

    Is your mum doing under an account she has created or trying to do it under your account. She needs to create her own account and then use your Alias ID and DOB to link the account to yours.

    I got a letter today saying that I get the basic loan, but not income assessed because I haven't sent the financial evidence. I have sent the evidence though, so what should I do?

    Same, I dunno whether to send it off or not. 'Cause maybe they're gonna send out assessed information later? idk.

    The main cause of these problems is that most of these things are automated, but the system is too quick for the people working there to keep up with, so people get sent *****y letters about not having sent stuff off when in reality they may have sent it off two months ago (because it hasn't been processed by staff yet). I had the same problem, but then they caught up and sent me my assessment (twice, claiming I didn't send the first back, when I did), but since then I've had to send in a change of circumstances form (which they haven't processed yet).

    Pain in the bumholio.

    If you've sent your application off before the closing date, and they're mid-way through it, and they're waiting for something from you, will you still get your money for the start of term?
