The reference i gave was the same H/O reference number which was sent in the acknowledgment letter (same numbers)
Hope it helps

Thats strange...Keep in mind i am not an immigration adviser, but I have my SAR report and other correspondence...everywhere is the same ref number ( starting with letters) since i extended my first student visa back in 2001. It was the same ref i got in the acknowledgement and invitation letter with which i booked the ceremony

yeah maybe thats the case is. but when i applied my BC i didnt entered any HO REF NO. but when i recived the ack letter it says NFEExxxxxxx so i have no idea about that. i have heard the case where cermony letter along with approval and most case you have to ring the counsil so was just woundering what to tell council.

if they got your certificate, i am pretty sure if you call and give you ref number with NFEExxxxxxx it should be fine. But it seems the HO sends the certificates out AFTER they send you the invitation letter, what is more you must present the invitation letter at the ceremony

Just got home and checked, you are right, there is only one letter ( i thought two, sorry mate) in a reference number, but it is still the same ref as in the acknowledgement and other correspondence from the H/O. For me, anyway. Maybe there are different cases or they made a mistake on mine

well no idea i qoute only what i got with ack letter, i understand if the person staying here for long (like you) for example student first then work permit etc they have to contact to HO all the time so they might have their old ref number but new they might use like mine start with NFEEXXXXXXX dose anyone else got this type of ref number, hope its normal lol

I am sure it is normal. Dont worry. You'll get your invitation letter soon. I did not even have two letters, only one invitation , so maybe it is just different for some people like me. I heard majority getting two letters ( approval and invitation) several days apart. Sometimes a week or two x

it was in the first para of the letter : i am pleased to approve your application etc, then the council details in the second para. hence it seems they combined it
