    Thanks for the positive post, good to hear. Though it is worth mentioning that the AP doesn’t score points, they only make recommendations. The only person that can score points is a decision maker. 
    A decision maker will now look at everything you sent, including the report and make a decision from there. 
    Whilst they most do go with the report, there have been times where they go against it but it’s rare.
    Decision timescales are between 2-12 weeks. 
    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.

    Hi @rayrar80 please do keep us updated, and let us know when you receive the final decision. I'm very glad to hear you're feeling so positive. As you say, you never know about these things until you try!

    Hopefully it won't be too long a wait but I wish you all the best for an equally positive final decision :)
