Thanks Kenfrapin. I was trying to do it by special delivery and one of the prime reasons for the posting is that the embassy takes applications from 0930 to 1230 hrs as per the website. Hence I had thought of the postal option. P.S: sincere apologies to moderators for posting in the wrong forum firs...

Home Office rules say that for Studying in UK (Full time) requires the individual to possess a Tier-4 Visa. Unless you have that college is not going to grant permission to study a full time course.

UKBA website should give the details

Depends on which type of study you would like to undertake. If it is full time , the answer is NO. If it is part time, yes it is possible to study in case you have a permanent job. As in a contract job it is difficult to get permission to attend the classes

Does the job market slow down in May (any holidays or vacation period over there in UK) ? Lack of response in the thread makes me think this may be case. Kindly advise

As Chetan rightly pointed out, VFS are only facilitators for the embassy. Ultimately you are responsible for the proofs you submit including the covering letters.

Is it 25th March or 25th May? If it 25th March, it is a tough question to answer. I do not have an answer to this. But the guidance says the date fee is Paid and biometric details taken. "and" confuses the matters. Only Seniors may be able to throw light on this
