Application date is the day they receive your application or the day you do your NCS appointment.

I personally dated and signed my application at my NCS appointment.
Are you concerned about the 5 (or 3) year rule, i.e. must have been in the UK on the day?
Why not arrange your date with a wide margin so you don't have a problem with this? A few days extra waiting won't make much of a difference.
This is just my opinion as a member of this forum and does not constitute immigration advice.

The date of your NCS appointment is your date of application. HO form AN guidance notes is very clear on this matter. It doesn't matter when NCS send it as your have already 'applied'.

Date of application when HO receives it is ONLY when you post it yourself.
