Hi Aditi
Good luck. Hope you would have prepared well. Share the about the interview once finished. May be purposely you did not mention the date of your interview, if not it would give others an idea how long they should wait if you share it. Anyhow good luck again and thanks for updating.

Hi Keth001

Thank you very much. Yes I am preparing for the interview now and hopefully all will be well. Yes I shall look to see an alternative platform to discuss things other than the forum as for obvious reasons you know ( you guessed it right as I have purposely not given my date ) but just so people know what sort of time line they r waiting ; it is about 2 to 3 weeks. Mine leads to October

Thank you very much

Hi Kapil

No reply yet, it is frustating. I have not seen any approval after interview. 6/7 refusals or rest on hold. Omni was the one who got approval in AR.

35) how do you find more contracts - the interviewer himself laughed and said why would you.
36) do you have a website - again he wrote himself
(The rest 10 questions like some in the above last were just going round and round on same things)
Then the interviewer said himself I duno why they have even bothered to ask you to come or ask these questions I have seen today 6 people they had very technical questions about declarations on profits etc ; your questions are very generic.
I will make sure I send this to your cw by this afternoon hopefully you should receive a decision with 2 to 3 weeks.

That's all guys any questions I am more than happy to discuss individually .
Hope this helps
