    It varies, there’s not really any timescales. Some have a decision within a few days and others wait several weeks.
    Once a decision is made the letter will be uploaded onto your journal.
    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.

    It may still be some time yet I'm afraid @LeicesterLad

    I think if you haven't heard after 8 weeks then you should contact them. That's the advice on Citizens Advice from what I can see.

    Hopefully it will be soon for you, and do ask if you have anymore questions :)
