I applied on 10/03/2020, the first contact i made with HMPO was on 02/06/2020.
It’s too much of a coincidence the application was allocated to an examination team on 02/06/2020, in other words they had not even looked at it until i made the first contact.
Even if they want to verify something they don’t need months, it’s just an excuse.
Someone with a sob story or someone who can shout the loudest on Twitter get their application prioritised, rest of the applications remain at the bottom of the pile.
Keep chasing on phone and twitter, good luck to you.
