Student Loan Repayment Overpayment

Hi there,

I am currently repaying my student loans on the plan 1 scheme but due to irregular work in 2018/2019 I believe I will have earned just slightly above the £18,330 threshold (£18,500) however have so far made payment of about £250. Will I be able to claim any of this amount back at the end of the financial year?
