Problems with getting developer pack

So, I have been trying to get the developer pack for a few months now, but I keep getting rejected. I am using a school email which should theoretically work. I have spoken to others in my school who were able to sign up for the program successfully without having to provide any verification using their school email. Unfortunately, when I try to apply using my school email it asks me to provide verification. Even then, it gets rejected. Is this normal? I am in the UK.
