Just found an interesting list on the internet. It's not 100% accurate as it also has India in it and we know that Indian Nationals are currently not facing any delays with their BC applications.

But it gives a fairly good idea of all other possible high risk countries.

That's a very good suggestion imran22 and I think I suggested it in one of the posts that we should add country of origin in the citizenship timeline.

HelenaTores : There could be other reasons for the delay. The reason I and scrapper mentioned the 'high risk country' factor is because 8 out of 10 delay cases we have seen on the forum are from the nationals of these countries. The most common reasons for the delay are: (if you are not from one of...

No problem scrapper . I and some more people (who are in a similar state) will update this post and also our main BC timeliness as soon as we get our approvals. As I mentioned earlier, there is nothing to worry about as most BC applications are straight forward, refusal rate is very low and they eve...

That's correct scrapper. As most applications are straight forward and the refusal rate of citizenship applications is only 4%, the applications from these countries' nationals eventually get approved but just take a long time (usually between 3-6 months).

I completely agree with you scrapper . I also got excited to see 2 or 3 weeks approval times but then I realised the fact that certain nationality's applications are taking a lot longer than others. I have myself spoken to at least 8-10 people on this forum who have confirmed that they are from one ...

SofiaofWales : scrapper is 100% correct.

I think there is another important factor which is previous Nationality . I have a feeling (based on 4 application currently with Home Office) that applications of certain nationalities are taking 2-3 months (or even longer) as there are additional checks for them. Most of these applications are str...

If you apply for BC before 28 October 2013, your existing LiUK will meet the requirement and you will not have to provide anything else.

But if you apply after 28 October 2013, you will have to provide both LiUK and one of the English Language tests from this list.

You can't apply for Citizenship directly. You have to apply for ILR first and once you have had ILR for 12 months (unless spouse of BC), you can then apply for Citizenship.
