When applying on 22nd June I did not realize I was not meeting the requirement of being in UK 5 years earlier as I was on holidays, missing the date by 1 day. Therefore I received a letter from HO on the 11th August informing me that I was not meeting this requirement, but that I could sign the form again (which they sent me together with the letter) and re-submit my application, then it will be consider as a new application from the date I re-submitted which was on the 15th August. I was quite lucky!!
