Hiya,

Just wondering if its just me but: i went to the bank the other day, made an appointment to get a student account for when i go to uni, to have my grnats and such paid into. Got to the end of the form online and was then told i couldnt have one because i dont have any credit rating?

I dont know about anyone else but i dont know many 18 year olds with a credit card in order to get a credit rating?

Has any one else managed to get one or have you all been told the same?

Looking foward to reading the replies

i have never applied one myself but i know of friends who have and i didnt think they had problems with opening them,
its weird if you need credit ratings and things
hope you get it sorted

I had a solo account and upgraded it to a student account and all I had to do was give proof of what university I was attending and I think that was pretty much it!

They didnt ask for a credit rating and I got an overdraft option as well!
Im with natwest which was easy!

Hope this has helped! Good luck at university you will love it!!!

Hiya,

Thanx for your comments guys. They asked me to bring identification and a letter confirming the uni i was going too which i did.

But they just said it was because i dont have a credit rating, which i really dont understand. However i have just kepy my cash card account open instead.
