Oh right - well that makes so much more sense now....I think my residence qualifying period is more than enough :)

You obviously understand their jargon better than what I do

Thanks for all the advice

There are of course a number of rules that need to be met but one I would emphasise is the need to ensure that the applicant was physically in the UK exactly 5 years before UKBA receive the Naturalisation application.
