  • Hi.

    Yes it is very stressful waiting for the result. Why dont you give them a quick call to see if they have any update at the same time you could ask them to send you a copy of the report.

    I was given my results over the phone long before i got the decision letter.

    It may be able to put your mind at rest before the Christmas holiday.

    Keep us updated.

    Merry Christmas



  • Hi virgo thankyou for your reply I'm just so stressed at the min I suppose worried about going through all this again if I don't get it and I wish u a happy xmas

  • Hi Virgo I took your advise and finally gave them a call when said it was with the sender now she also said not to worry as there was nothing negative in the report how would she know this ,she also said if I haven't heard by the 29 th of December to give them a call back so I'm not sure if that sounds possative for me or not .happy xmas to you and thankyou again

  • With the decision maker,not sender lol
