Azure Education B2ats V2 and B2pls V2?

I've had the Azure For Students pack for about half a year now.

Recently I saw that in that package I should get a B1s, B2ats v2, B2pls v2 (Saw it here) for both Windows and Linux. But when I signed up it was only a B1s.

Whenever I go to my Free Services page it only mentions B1s and B2ats v2 leaving out the B2pls v2. However on this link it mentions the following:

Azure free account includes:

750 hours of Standard B1, B2ATS, and B2PTS Linux Virtual Machine

750 hours of Standard B1, B2ATS Windows Virtual Machine

2 P6 (64GiB) managed disks

When I go to create a virtual machine it only lets me use a B1s and if I go onto a B2ats v2 it shows me the following:

Insufficient quota

2 vCPUs are needed for this configuration, but only 0 vCPUs (of 0) remain for the Standard Basv2 Family vCPUs.

This system is extremely confusing and has left me wondering, What VMs do I get and what do I not get?

    Hi @IsmailJamal-0898 ,

    please check the availability of the Basv2, and Bpsv2 VM SKU series in the Azure region you are using: Products available by region

    Not all VM series SKUs are available in each Azure region.

    Also you can check the quota for these VM SKU series for your Azure Subscription:
