I am a bit worried about English language requirements.
I passed life in the UK test and attached certificate.

I attached the uk university degree certificate. Is it going to be OK? I did not explain anything, and I have used them for my points when I get my work permit.

I have seen other people used some print out or other agencies to confirm the degree was taught by English.

I am a bit worried now. Anyone can help me please?

Those other people did not have a UK university degree like you.

So, just enjoy and wait for that brown envelop.. Nothing to worry, nothing to do..

Just asked my NCS and they basically said I need to wait HO to get in touch with me. I applied on 11 March. Maybe I am a bit impatient.

It seems that HO slows down a bit now. How about your application? Any news?

Hi guys, I rang HM this morning to change my address and he told me to go change address online!! Does anyone of you know where I can change my address please.
I also asked about my application, last week someone told me it's still waiting for a case worker and today he told me is in process and wait 6 months!! I asked him when did the process started , he said since it's arrived (24/03).
Applied for EEA4 on 24/02/2012.
HO received on 27/02/2012.
Refusal received on 16/08/2012 dated 11/08/2012
At the court, the HO REP withdrawn the decision and asked me to send the DOC for the time before marriage.

Applied on 7th March 2014 through NCS. I sent additional documents through the post as NCS refused to take certain documents claiming they were unnecessary.

I received my original documents back from HO on 26th April but there was no decision letter included. They stated that they have taken note of the documents and they are returning them to me for my own convenience.

Has anyone had similar experience ? I am wondering if a decision has been made or my application is now been considered.

Just a small update. I was travelling back from India today and at the immigration desk was asked if I applied for naturalisation. When I replied yes, the lady informed me that my application was approved. I said that I did not receive any confirmation letters yet and she said that you will receive it soon.
