Zimba is right processing time 8 weeks to may be 10 Months, depend on your case complexity and caseworker.

if your case simple straightforward there is more chances get decision quickly.

Tier 1 extension

Applied 1st December 2016
Biometric letter 8th Dec 2016
Biometric given 14th December 2016
No interview -was interviewed in initial application
Ihs refund 14th Feb 2017 200 pounds
Biometric card received 17th Feb 2017
Awaiting documents , expecting Monday as called them and they said package out

Follow the document list discussed in forum was helpful. however I am not a keen supporter of some contributors who tend to contribute without understanding that some of the cases here are very specific and a small percentage of big pool of applicants . Any particular trend in few applicants may not be true representative . One example being --I was concerned and confused when partial refund came through as I read here that partial refund can mean anything .some contributors have their own opinion without understanding stats. Anyways I am happy and would advise to stay positive .
