Hi, i am just curious that no one from shortage of occupation category confirmed their receipt of CoS. Does this job category have their CoSs issued by default??

My gut feeling is that the cut off point should come down below 46. So this month it would be atleast 40. My wild guess😊

I tend to agree with you. I think we should hit 40 this month. Sorcially when last month was 56 and before that was 56. Fair bit of back log should have been cleared last month and jope that same should apply this month as well, as the allocation number this month are nearly similiar as last. Just hoping it does go to that.

Last month it was 46 and March was 56

Based on the posts, today we had approvals for 75 (max) and 55 (min) points. Does that mean anyone who has points in between, and not received the approval, should be concerned? In my view, the Home office will be allocating RCoS in descending order of points. Any info would be helpful.
Request anyone within 75 and 55 pts, and yet to receive approvals, please acknowledge. I am within this range, and didn't receive the approval yet, so bit concerned. Thanks.

This is my sixth month applying (employer has redone RLMT) at 31 pts.

I've followed these feeds for the past six months and gone through a lot of the same stresses you all feel. I've lived in the UK for two years before running into these issues so I really feel like I've been pulled from my home, I have SUCH an attachment to this country.

Honestly this is the first month that the tone has really changed in this forum. People are really getting stressed out from this process and it is really unfortunate that this situation has brought out such anxiety in people, I wish the government could understand this.

Just know that you are not alone (especially those who have had to retry for months now) and I absolutely feel your pain and am harnessing all my hope and good vibes for this to turn around for all of us.
I’ve noticed that too. I understand that the stress would eventually get to people but like you I’ve been at this for 6 months, also having been ripped from what I now consider my “home”, was left jobless, etc (although I do have a job now as I predicted in January that this wasn’t going to be a quick path). So I do understand the stress.

However when it’s severe enough that it’s causing people to tell others that they shouldn’t be posting because they have high points or to flush their heads down the toilet you have to wonder if the stress has become too significant for some people and they’d be best removing themselves from this process.

Honestly it makes me not want to visit the forum anymore and I don’t think I will be much anymore. Between the nasty, hostile tone and pages being clogged up with people asking others to calculate their points for them there’s really no reason to want to stick around. I originally liked this board because it was comforting going through this with people in the same process but the vibe has just changed for the negative far too much.

Good luck to you!

Oh also: if there’s two approvals at 55 points now being granted “exceptionally” that’s a fairly strong indication that the cut off is 55.

Like a previous month it looks like they had to borrow some from June and grant some exceptionally outside the quota to get the whole band across (I.e. there were too many at 55 for the whole band to fit in the normal quota but less than 100 so some could be borrowed from June to get the whole band in).

One being granted exceptionally at 55 points was reason for concern but nothing conclusive...2 at 55 points being granted exceptionally is another matter given what we’ve seen happen with this in a previous month.

Stop speculating, guys!
There may be compelling circumstances where a CoS can be granted
exceptionally, before the next allocation date. Applications will be considered
on merit and in line with relevant policy. It is not possible to give a full list of
circumstances that might be defined as ‘compelling’, however approvals
should be rare. Examples might be:
• where delays caused by us resulted in a newly licensed sponsor needing a
CoS for a migrant who is due to start work before the 11th of the next month
• a consultant surgeon has been recruited and needs to be appointed at once
because patients need life-saving surgery before the 11th of the following
month
"

as per the guidance, "exceptional circumstances" are for applications submitted after the deadline but need to be considered within the cycle.

You are right. People calm down and don't be paranoid. I know we all have valid reasons to be.

According to gov.uk employer guidance, the term exceptional is defined in section 29.30, page 132 for those who want to validate. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... l_v1.0.pdf

Thanks for correcting.Hopefully the given pattern will bring the points up to 40 mark and there will be few more happy faces

Speaking with my immigration lawyer she expects the cutoff will be at salaries of 55k or more (i.e. 55 points with salary + residential labour market test).

Hi all,

I heard from my employer that the status of my rCos application is shown "under review".
Is anyone other waiting/has waited on same status?
How far the wait goes?

thanks,

Everyone needs to stop speculating so much. Just let the results come in. No one knows the cut off. At the end of the week we should all hopefully have our answers.

4th time applying 41 points.
