I am going to be over-taxed, is there a way to prevent it to avoid hassle of a Tax Refund?

I m a unemployed student. For the last week I ve been working as an extra, I ve earnt £1,000. This is probably the only income I ll get this year, and obviously far below the tax threshold, but on the Pay As You Earn system, HMRC may assume I get that every week and tax accordingly. Is there a way to stop this,... show more I m a unemployed student. For the last week I ve been working as an extra, I ve earnt £1,000.

Is there a way to stop this, or do I need to get a tax refund after?
