    I applied well in advance, bloody MONTHS ago now and still NOTHING? The system is total crap, I heard from them 7 or so weeks after I first applied with something on how because I would be living at home (:confused: ) yada yada, WTF? When did I ever mention that on the form? And then it takes hours to get through to them on the phone with at least 2 of them insisting that it was 'now too late to reassess your circumstances' .... and that was MONTHS AGO! :mad:

    I bloody well hate 'em. Passionately. Wildly.

    Anyone else here feel the same? Does more or less everyone get their money in time?

    As you can see from the various threads on this topic, other people are in the same boat.

    If you submitted a fully completed application before the relevent deadline, you will get your support in time.

    Yeh I sent off my sig ages ago but it still says awaiting sig, but as I'm going to be a third year I don't think it'll matter too much.

    I applied in March and they didn't even confirm my identity until flipping July! I'm now waiting for my Disabled Student's Allowance to be approved which is likely to take even longer, and I have been specifically told by the suppliers that the equipment could take up to 8 weeks to arrive - i'll be well into first semester by that time!

    The whole system is crap from start to finish, and I am seriously thinking about putting a complaint in. Having such a bad system is just not on when you're dealing with something as important as University fees.

    I sent all the stuff of well over a month ago now, including ID, but they've yet to send me the letter that requires my signature. So no, doesn't look like you're the only one who's being jerked around a wee bit. Just wish they'd communicate a little clearer about what the **** is going on...

    once you sign that letter and return it, you have completed the process (i think) because that signature is the acceptance of the terms and conditions for student finance.

    I applied initially in May with my parents info sent off in early-mid June and i have only just recieved the letter in the last week, i phoned up before and they told me that currenty they are working through financial information recieved between the 1st and 21st June.

    I did my application and my brothers on the same day, he's had his assessment and signature and I still haven't heard anything. Moral of the story is student finance suck.

    I applied in June before the deadline and I still haven't heard anything.

    I've only been sent an acknowledgement letter and that's it.

    I applied on the day of the deadline, 26th June and I received the documents for proof of earnings etc. a few weeks later. They probably wont let us know anything else until after we get our results and have accepted our uni places.
