Hello Sixtysix,

It certainly can be a case of ?! and !? and even ?!?!?!? But I would recommend that you follow their advice and get your form back to them by 5th August, just in case.

Remember you can always send in additiuonal information and supporting evidence after that date.

Hi sixtysix,
Presumably that means review is early to make sure it is completed before the extended deadline, all because there is a backlog. I suppose that makes sense!
At least you know.

Hi all,

Not to put too much of a pessimistic tone to it, also if the decision goes against you and that decision is made before the extension date, am I correct in summising the decision will stand and you could in effect finish up with nothing?

Regards,

Phrank.
