No. The 90 days is the total absence in the last 12 months.

Please read this page:
https://www.gov.uk/english-language/app ... ifications

- You didn't use for your indefinite leave to remain
- It has been passed more than 2 years ago

It expired and you have to pass it again.

DO NOT start new posts for each question. Ask all your questions here in one thread !!
You MUST only apply online. You can save your application and come back to it again. Use the referee page you already printed it is the same

If you continue to complete the online application you will see that it will ask you to fill in your referees' details i.e. full name, address, occupation and British passport number. You can only do this online as the declaration form will not have this option.

Clearly as it is a MS Word document.

Note also that the link I provided does not ask for the standard inform referees need to provide in the online form.
