September 2019 Intake Timeline

Post by vasubhatia » Thu Jul 11, 2019 9:56 am

Creating this topic to discuss timelines.
Better to wait together than be anxious alone.

Here is my timeline:

25th June- Online Application
28th June- Biometrics (Chandigarh, India)
29th June- email confirming receipt of Visa application by Sheffield Decision Making Office

And since then I have been waiting for a decision. I mailed the university to check if my CAS number had been marked as 'used'. Apparently it has been marked as used on the 10th of July.

Mailed UKVI to check my application status and waiting for a reply.

Strangely enough there was no credibility interview conducted for me by VFS. Neither have I received a phone call in all this time.

What about you guys? I guess I am applying earlier than most.

- Previous successful Tier 4 applicant for undergraduate degree & no overstaying
- Uploaded all my documents electronically through VFS and therefore only submitted my passport

Update:
11th July: Got a reply from UKVI to my email enquiry that a decision has already been reached.
15th July: Notification from VFS to collect my passport.
15th July: Collected passport with the visa vignette inside.

I guess UKVI isn't conducting a credibility interview now.

The wait is over for me. Hopefully others here get their visa soon.

They send out a standard e-mail acknowledging receipt of application at the Sheffield DMO.
Mine was a standard application.
May I know which university are you planning on going to?

Did you get any update from your university, regarding the CAS being used? I had applied on 8th and enquired about the CAS status with my university. But it seems like it hasn't been used. Kindly keep your timeline updated.

Was this a Standard application or priority? Also did you check the status of CAS with your University?

The CAS is marked as used when your application has been reviewed and the Entrance Clearing Officer has come to a decision. If it is still not marked as used, it implies that your application still hasn't been considered by an ECO.

Yes it was a standard process. I did not get an appiointment so I went for walk in to give my biometrics. I received my Visa On Saturday! 🍀
To be honest I was bit scared, as I did not receive any SMS or Email updates after the first notification. I had thought of checking with the university for CAS status on Monday but not required now.

PFB my updated timeline: -
Online application : 6th July, 2019.
Bio-metrics @ VFS Hyderabad, India : 8th July, 2019.
SMS and Email notification of application being forwarded and received at Home Office respectively : 8th July, 2019.
Received the Visa : 20th July, 2019.

All the best everyone! I think we should wait for 15 working days for UKVI to give the decision.
