My friend got refused last February under student scheme for the same reason as your.He reviewed his file and last Friday he got refused again.
So its clear that if you review even wouldn't get any positive outcome of this scheme.

It's crazy that they process some applications including appeals and people who applied in October still waiting.

I think chronological order not being followed at all. Also, the applications which are simple for them to accept or to refuse are being dealt straight away they come across them. others complex applications might take longer to make decisions.

I applied in December and my application is as straightforward as it gets. I have submitted every document I have. My solicitor even included a letter stating my whole situation. Despite this, they keep sending me generic responses when I inquire.

Any chance if they are following the alphabetical order ? i.e. Names start with A, then B and C , so on.. because some people who applied in october are still waiting whereas other who applied only in January have already got decisions. Any body have an idea?

A friend of mine who has his second name starting with A applied in October. No updates since. I think it's random. However they should have more resources as re-entry visa was cancelled so processing should be faster now. Should be..

I arrived in 2009 on a student visa and completed a 4-year undergraduate degree and then went on to do a 4-year postgraduate degree. My stamp 2 expired in 2018 because I got an extension to enable me to finish my postgrad thesis. I got a stamp 1G in May 2018 which is due to expire next month. I've only changed from a stamp 2 to stamp 1G and nothing else. I hope that helps....

I guess I did tick a lot of the boxes. I arrived in 2009 and only changed from stamp 2 to stamp 1G, I did a lot of part-time work at the university where I did my postgrad and now on a short term contract so I was able to show p60 from 2016, 2017 and 2018 as well as payslips showing I was not dependent on the state. I also included letters from my boss and another colleague just to strengthen my application although I'm not sure that made any difference.

Congratulations :D
You have ticked all the boxes as well.

I am wondering how strict are they on the work as a condition. I have only completed my degree in 2018 and doing masters now on 1G visa. It expires in September. I was never dependent on the state as I have been sponsored by my family throughout. I have spend a lot of money in Ireland as you can imagine over the past 10 years. If anyone knows how strict they are on work as condition please post it here.

I think they are only strict with regards to any previous change of status, I might be wrong of course. I believe as long as you've not changed your status, chances of getting a positive reply is relatively high even without work. I pray you'll get positive feedback soon.......

Congratulations!!! I want to know before they delivered your papers this morning did they show your application was completed online. Someone said they show completed on the online portal a day before they send the letter? Thanks

This is true. The online portal showed application was completed a day before I received the letter. I made it a habit to check the online portal every evening.
