Copied from main thread:

I just submitted my application today through Islington council NCS and the interviewer told me something that I think might be why Oct cases have been so delayed - apparently there was a very sharp increase in applications in October (he said 39,000 just that month) to get in ahead of the new language requirement, so there's a massive backlog. He said not to expect them to even look at my application before the new year as they have so many to get through.

Eligibility criteria: 3 years spouse of British citizen
Language criteria met: Exempt country (USA)
Current nationality: US American
Method of application: NCS Islington
Date of application: 5 December 2013
Date of receipt by UKBA:
Date of acknowlegment:

Date approval received:
Date of ceremony:
