    Perfectly normal. Thats only 8 working days including today since your assessment. Yes some have decisions within a few days, others a few weeks and some as long as a few months.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I’ve had 3 WCA one decision was next morning and more recently a decision took two weeks and one was 6 weeks so it varies.
