    Isn't it just so frustrating, I really don't think they know what they are doing and doesn't appear to be much communication between departments. I really don't know how they can make such a **** up especially when all evidence needed was provided by yourself.
    I'm sorry to read that it looks like you will miss out on the government backed course as they are not going to sign/stamp the form in time xx
