If you included a special delivery envelop with your application, they will post your paper using that envelop. So you should get it delivered to wherever you specified on the envelop.

If you didn't give them special delivery envelop for returning, they will just use first class recorded delivery addressed to wherever you specified as your contact address on your application form..

in either case, If no body is in at the time when post man comes, they will leave a card telling you to collect from royal mail sorting centre.

Shaz999 have you included any letter from your university stated your medium of instruction is in english, let me have more research on this as far as i think it should be acceptable provided with the letter.

Is your university listed in the Tier1 calculator for your english language requirement just check it and let me know.

And if not then you have to go for IELTS.

Hi Shaz999, Sorry to hear about your rejection.

I just looked on points calculator but points are not awarded for BSc degree from University of Punjab, Lahore.

Get your degree certified by NARIC. For urgent treatment from NARIC it may cost upto £200 to £300 but you will get result within 48 hrs.

Also, I suppose if your degree is not listed in the points calculator, you won't be awarded 10 points for English language requirements. You may want to get a letter from college/university stating your Medium of Instruction was in English.
OR
Appear for IELTS.

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/pointscalculator
Above is the link of points calculator from Home Office website.

Thanks,
Viral

Thx all for the reply, actually i attached IELTS already so that is not
a problem.

as i understand 3 years degree from punjab uni will not be accepted
as british equal, will combination of

degree+i year diploma+cerrtifcate will make it equilant.

Hi Shaz999,

You can only claim points for ONE degree. So don't reapply with more than ONE.

Normally application is submitted with the degree fetching highest possible points. In your case it seems to be BSc.

But as it is NOT listed on points calculator, your degree needs to be endorsed through a body recognised by Home Office, which is NARIC.

If you can secure required 90 points with just your Diploma, that can be valid as well. I haven't seen anywhere in guidance notes saying that your degree must be a Bachelors or over.

I would suggest to read guidance notes thoroughly. It won't take more than an hour to go through.

Cheers,
Viral

Made a mistake in last post by saying minimum required points as 90. Actually its 75.

No Idea to be honest, they must deal quicker with applications. I sent all the docs I could, 12 month payslips, P60, 12 month bank statements, all my diplomas, wrote a nice cover letter detailing the documents attached and the points I am claiming.

One thing that I wanted to stress is the fact that I spoke three times this week to the HO and they were very very nice and helpful. The first time to tell me my application was completed, the second to ask them about the outcome (whcih they told me over the phone); and lastly to ask them when they ll send my docs back

Cheers
Mi

Madihi11.

I note in your good news posting you received the visa stamped docs on 18 October 2008 and I assume you are not based in the UK.Please clarify because it appears that applications lodged at BHC offices in some countries are being processed quicker than in the UK.
