Hi All,

Done with the interview.
All my questions were based on self employment. How you carry out your business. how much is your annual turnover. managing time, your client details. accountant's address. did u file your SA. how much you declared for ILR.30 min altogether. Finally said will get a response in due course. don't know how long I have to wait now. stressful days. Lets see. God is good.

Thanks.

Hi Ama,

Didn't they give you a date in the first letter. I think you may need to call them

Hi Guys and Girls,

Just a quick update on my application:

App. submitted: 19/01/16
Biometrics: within 1 week
First Correspondence: Early October about interview
Interview: Late October:
Biometric received: Yesterday

All, I can say is that this forum has been really helpful. Also, best wishes for people awaiting their outcomes.

One thing I realized during this whole waiting period is that this is not the end of life. Whatever happens, it happens for a reason.

Thanks Shahmir!

I was both employed and self-employed throughout with no amendments.

i was generally asked questions about my 10 year history (like education, work, visas etc.).. Self employment questions were in more details. I was also asked about my current tax submission which I responded by telling that it will be submitted by 31/01/17.

That's very good news
Long wait at least paid off in the end.

I believe you applied as T1 general on set o?
They still asked you about your 10 year history ?

Thanks Aditi!

Yes, I applied on Tier 1 Set O basis. However, in September I completed my 10 years in U.K. as well.

I also wasn't expecting them to ask much about other stuff but they went in details about everything. It was around a 70 min interview but I believe I stayed very calm throughout.

Hi

I just had my interview today. It lasted for like 50mins. The line of questioning was on self-employment and the rationale behind the selfemployment earning more than the employed earning. Also, the movement of funds in account. One other question that appears strange was that asking if am compelled to do anything while am in the UK.

Hi Excellent,

The line of questions asked is similar to mine. The question about if you have done anything dodgy in the UK is a general question they ask everyone. Am starting to think their is something weird going on in the Home office, but we shall prevail in the end.
