Wow..how did you manage to get the ceremony on the 3rd? Camden NCS told me they didn't have any available till the 10th (when I'll probably be hung over from the Christmas party) so I won't be doing mine till the 17th.

I just asked for public one. Maybe its the private ceremony dates booked till late.

I just wanted to get this out of the way. Really tired of all this.

Do you know how long is the ceremony?

Thanks

I've called UKVI twice now, and was assured both times a decision had been made and printed off.

Called today to confirm whether it had been sent. The person told me nothing had been printed or sent off, application is still under consideration... How come there's a discrepancy in the information provided? Are they not all subject to seeing the same information regarding the progress of an application?

Here's the updated spreadsheet to date Nov 28th 2014. From what folks have posted there has been a 60% approval rate thus far for Oct 14 applications. I wish everyone who's waiting the best of luck. I hope your approvals come through quickly.

Here is a sorted version of the spreadsheet if someone wants to take over updating the timelines. The approved persons are at the top thus it makes it easier to create a spreadsheet with the persons waiting. I hope someone finds this useful. Cheers
