Thank you, Blackhole, it is a very stressful time, and there seems to be no method in this madness. I, myself, was quite lucky as I got my BC within around 2 months of applying, but this person I know doesn't seem to be so lucky.

Excitement's gone and I am preparing myself for a long wait...considering some people on this forum had to wait 9 mths to a year.
I know it is not the same, but

it is a stage that we have to pass

have you considered any action like writing, shouting, whatever :-)

You are on 6 months time now

So, call them, they must talk to you, if it didn't work try to push it through your MP

Also you may consider write to them at least once a month

Good luck mate
