Punjabi368 Please respect that this is a TIMELINE THREAD ONLY. All questions have been and will be deleted.
(Casa, not CR001)
Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

** Originally my NCS appointment was in March. However on balance I decided not to apply at the time because there seemed to be no flexibility in the application process to understand that the Statement of Comparability I submitted during my HSMP application can be referred to for the Naturalisation application. Unfortunately I didn't have a copy on hand (not that it would have helped - they wanted the 'Original' - yes - the same Original they kept with them as part of the HSMP application!) and so I decided to spend some more money and time to get a fresh Statement of Comparability done - better to spend ~£200 and five weeks than to waste £1300
