Hi All,

Applying again this month with 40ps. I am hoping this works out this month. This is my last month to apply as my current visa actually ends on the 23rd of the this month. This is the 3rd month I am applying and really hope it drops below 40p and they let us know as early as possible.

Good luck everyone.

Hi all,

I have a question here, I am reading the T2 policy guideline and found below description about language requirement,

You will be awarded 10 points if you are applying for leave to remain under Tier 2
(General), Tier 2 (Sportsperson) or Tier 2 (Minister of Religion) and you meet the
requirements of one of the categories listed below:
• you are a national of a majority English speaking country; or
• you hold a degree that was taught or researched in English which must be equivalent
to a UK Bachelors degree or above; or
• you have passed an English language test at the appropriate level; or
Tier 2 Policy Guidance (Version 07/2018) Page 38
• you have met the English language requirements when given a previous grant of
leave; or
• you qualify under the transitional arrangements.


So I have a master degree from a university in England, do I have this 10 points? My salary is 30K, does this make my points 40pts? RLMT + Salary + language?

Thank you!

This is for your visa. There is a post on page one with a chart that let's you know how the points breakdown works.

For RCoS allocations, it is ONLY points for RLMT and Salary. The English points is for when you have the RCoS and apply for your actual visa.

Please do not ask visa application questions in this topic.

soc production manager in manufacturing
Score is 31(which includes 10points as I completeled my graduation in U.K.)
How much is your salary scale ?
RMLT only give you 20 points , i guess right .
I think this is not shortage skills in UK ?
My salary is 21700 and I am employed as graduate and as I am student I am exempted from RLMT
ok

Guys here is my take

Going by number of certificates allocated this month compared to last month (which had more than 500 extra) the cut off would be much higher.Also, the companies which had freezed applying forRCoS citing the high cut off, would now want to apply after seeing july cut off ,there by increasing the competition especially in 40's.I think the cut off will be atleast 45 if not 50 citing above 2 reasons. What is your take?

It will come down further. Last time there too many applications above 50 points. That wont be the case this time. By 15th we should see applications approval for 40 points.

@LIVEWIRE40
It's just 10th Aug 2018. I believe we are all here to help each other optimistically.
Let'stry not to spread out negativity .. that too when it's only the start of the allocation.

What knowledge are you basing this on? nothing.

Doctors and nurses are permanently out so thi will always mean extra allocation from the lower to the very highest point band. They were always a significant part of the backlog.

Further, lots of companies who held off applying again will have to do new RLMTs. Some would have planned ahead but I am sure many didn’t - we are late into the year now.

The 45 backlog was a huge bottleneck and that they went through last month will ease things even if more 45 pointers apply again, that was a significant number

There was no FOI for the July breakdown so we don’t even have solid numbers to work with.

As someone who has been applying all year and reading this board for many many months, I don’t appreciate a new member coming in ans peeing on everyone’s chances for August based on nothing but guesses and maybes.

Look at the July thread. People got together to decide that it would be another 50 point month but the jump from 60 to 41 was very significant.

I’m not going to say it’s over until it’s over and I challenge anyone who wants to make pessimistic guesses to actually bring NUMBERS and not emotions

Guys ,apologies if my analysis hurt anyone.
I myself been applying for last 4 months and i want to deduce my realistic chances at 40p. Dont want to blindly be overly optimistic and raise everyones hope, only to be dejected later. Trying to be practical.That is all, thanks.
