I phoned student finance england and the colleague said i need to fill in a co1 form to cancel student loan.  Years ago i got poorly and was unable to complete my University HND course year 1 with student loan. 

So will it get written off the student loan, if i fill in a co1 form, send it back and notify of change of circumstances?

    There is no c01 form for 2003/2004.  So im writing to Student Finance England.  Gave them my hospital address and phone number.  If they need it for medical evidence.

    A right off now would be based on your earnings and how long you have had the loan.
    The only time medical evidence would be significant would be if you are re applying for student finance for a new course and want the previous loan to be disregarded to entitle you to full finance for the new course. This is called compelling medical evidence. You get one extra year entitlement beyond the length of your new course as standard, so having dropped out in the first year of a previous course wouldn't matter.
    If you could make it clearer why you are asking for the loan to be written off it would help people answer.
