Discretion to disregard immigration time restrictions in the final 12 months is subject to 7.5
However, if you're the spouse or civil partner of a British citizen, then there is no requirement to wait 12 months after ILR under section 6(2).

Normal route is ILR, then 12 months and then naturalisation.nee901 wrote:I have recently applied for naturalisation and was rejected because I had not applied for Indefinite Leave to Remain. In my research I hadn't realised I had needed it as I thought I had met the settlement requirements; I had lived in the UK for almost 10 years. Since my application refusal I have had to go back to my home country because my LR was expired and apply for another Visa which was then deemed unsuccessful. I'm not sure why yet as I just found out today. I wish that I had found these boards before I had my applications as the guidance I used was not clear.
