Hi All,

I have received approval letter from Home Office today dated 12th Feb for myself and my wife. We had applied on 27th of December so that's reasonably fast. I'll ring the council tomorrow to book ceremony.

Good luck to everyone waiting!

Regards,
Rahul

P.S For English language requirement, both of us had attached PBS Calculator printout for degree taught in English along with degree certificate copy.

I got my approval today, dated 14th Feb. I got a question though: we made the joint application (me + my wife), but the approval letter only has my name. Does it mean my wife's application is still being processed?

the system doesn't let me edit the original timeline, so here is the timeline update:

Language criteria met (UK degree, exempt countries, PBS used documents, NARIC, or B1 test): PBS
Current nationality: South African
Method of application: NCS

Date of application: 30/12/2013
Payment method CC/DC, Personal cheque, Bankers cheque etc: CC
Date of receipt by UKBA: 31/12/2013 (RMSD tracking)
