Eligibility criteria: Section 6(2)
Language criteria met: Degree, LITUK
Nationality: Indian
Method of application: NCS (Hatfield)
Date application submitted: 13/08/2015
Payment method: Credit Card
Date application received by HO: 14/08/2015
Date money gone off account: 25/08/2015
Date acknowledgement received : 28/08/2015 (dated 25/08/2015)

Receipt of approval letter: 30/10/2015 (dated 23/10/2015)
Date of ceremony : 16/11/2015


Acknowledgement letter was issued with "first name" only. The biometric enrollment letter, however, was issued with "full name".

Had applied through NCS under Hertfordshire County Council as they had appointments readily available. The approval letter lists Hertfordshire County Council as the "local council" for the ceremony - even though the person resides in Buckinghamshire!!
