Applied for ILR Route : SET(M), super priority
Date application sent : 16/02/2019
Document received by HO : 25/02/2019
Date Biometrics Enrolled : 26/02/2019
Approval/Refusal Received : APPROVED via email 3.5 hours later on 26/2/2019
BRP Card Received :28/2/2019

I really didnt expect to get approval that quick as I saw so many people chose 24 hours service but still waiting for decision after 24 hours. Also my case I feel like is very complicated, it has involved my maternity leave, changing jobs, and using cash savings. When I check my email, I saw an email from UKVI something, I thought it was like confirmation that they have received all my documents and started to process my application. But instead, it was the decision email! I was so relieved.

Applied for ILR Route : Tier 2 ( 5 years) online super priority

out of experience it took 3 weeks to get email approval, calling UKVI is not work.. only thing is to wait and see. looks like they are taking max 3 weeks, if you want to panic wait for 3 weeks at least.
