Agree with TTOE, there is nothing wrong in being hopeful. Indeed 6 months is the wait time, but for 98% of the people here since timeline started it has always been less than 6 months for the approvals. Yes oct did cause a massive backlog but i am sure things are getting back on track again.

Would new applications effect the people who need there certificate corrected? I mean how long does it take to change an E into and I?

I was informed at Manchester NCS that the number of applications after Oct 2013 per month are far less than average, hopefully that will make approvals come sooner. :)

Some applications are much more straight-forward, and therefore quicker to approve, than others.
