Date application : 29.07.19 00:06 online sent
Document uploaded through UKCVAS : 29.07.19 midnight
Acknowledgement letter/email received (if applicable) : None
Biometric Letter/email received (if applicable) : None
Date of UKCVAS Appointment (if applicable) : 29.07.19 09:30 London Premium Lounge (£260 this is the most appropriate option for me as no. of appointments are scarce. Arrived slightly early and finished by 10:00)
Payment Debited : 29.07.19 afternoon
Complex Letter received (if applicable) : None

Escalation : 1st time 31.07.19 call & email UKVI and MP (said caseworker has 5 working days to revert. MP chased and got a response that they are unable to process my application under super priority service. UKVI would get in touch shortly with more information for a partial refund as they were unable to deliver the service that I paid for.
2nd time 05.08.19 call UKVI to escalate (worker initially took my details but for some reason she asked me to only call again in 2 days Wednesday if I haven't received a decision)
3rd time 06.08.19 call UKVI 10 ish to escalate (second thought and did not understand the above non-sense as today is well over 7 days. Case escalated successfully) same day PM - call received from HO and confirmed a decision is made!!! She was not the caseworker but very polite and helpful. She gave me a royal mail ref number. Right to work status 'There is no limit on how long you can stay in the UK' :D :D I'm over the moon!!!!

Approval/Refusal Received : formal letter expecting (royal mail 2nd class)
BRP Card Received : expecting further instructions

Altogether it took 8 days to receive my decision. Whilst I know some people have waited longer, this is undoubtedly the most agonising and depressing week of my life. I was unable to eat and sleep properly I'm just so glad this is over!!!! Very grateful for the support and experience shared in this forum. Sorry for the lengthy post and good luck to those that are waiting!!!
