Update 21/11/2018
I have received a BRP today by HO’s designated DX delivery service, I have been granted 30 months and it should complete 10 years at end of this visa, that’s when i will go for ILR, AlhUMDULI ALLAH.
It took me exact 4 weeks from posting an application to receiving BRP today.
All the best guys for your applications.
Thank you for your help and support :)

Hey sorry for late reply. Not been on here.
I ticked the box which said applying to extend the previous leave where I was granted a leave on basis of family/spouse/child. I also explained it to them in covering letter that my previous grant was FLR-O and now I am switching it to FLR-M.
Don’t forget to send pre paid envelope. Because home office and Royal Mail just lost whole bundle of my supporting documents. 😔
Good luck!
