Agree, but getting a comparability from NARIC is not a must. If you have a degree that shows 10 points on the PBS, that means your course and university is already on UKBA database and your original degree certificate should be enough and if can include the transcript showing the medium of instructi...

The rules clearly state the degree must be deemed by NARIC not by the UKBA, unless you have a source to back up your claims I would err on the side of caution. Atleast I couldn't find anywhere on the UKBA site that refers to NARIC, please can you point us to the right link or material that states t...

I wouldn't recommend wasting your money on Naric Assessment, if you have a degree taught in English... Nowhere on the UKBA sites or gov.uk do they refer to you getting the comparability from NARIC, as it is another money churning independent body. Use it only for your self confidence and including t...

It is indeed 3 months time you have before you can attend the ceremony.

But I too still wonder why the mention of 21 days in the invite letter, what could be the purpose of that time line ?

Easiest and safest is to just maintain how its been for last few years... i.e. use Indian passport all along and your ILR BRP for visa validation as before. Only carry your British passport if you wish to and donot use it anywhere just to avoid confusion, though it may be easier to get on the UK pas...

I would rather stick to getting a print of the PBS self assessment, and stick it along with the application. That should suffice, than spending money on the NARIC which is exactly reflected on the self assessment page.

Ideally use the latest form if you dont want to risk being asked for an updated form... Why do you simply want to risk using the old forms...
