I don't think about it, hard I know, but I keep
Myself occupied at work, gym, dog walking usually clears my head so its abit easier 😁 My attitude is , if they need you they'll contact you. No news is good news. I probably won't even realise when my status online changes and they'll pop up out of the blue with "the call" I've learnt the hard way, after been merit listed for quite a while, I checked emails every day can't even count how many times. I even phoned SS a few times to make sure I wasn't forgotten about. 😁 This feels like a breeze. 🙈Probably won't be saying that after a few weeks

Waiting does suck... I've got conditional offer 3 days after attending RAD but have just been stuck in vetting since.. All my refs and counter signature have been done. But still I wait.. SS won't tell anything... Just want to hand my notice in at work and get on with it now.....

I can TOTALLY relate. We have a very similar timeline (albeit I was one or two days earlier).

I found out that actually one of my references hadn't been contacted, someone within the vetting process made a mistake and entered the wrong details, and then additional wrong details after i'd corrected them.

Anyway, the long and short of it is that I only found out last week that everything has finally come back clear. It will likely be the same for you, maybe somewhere along the line something hasn't been done etc. I know they changed the vetting process over the past couple of months in a hope to speed up the process.

I know it's tough, but just grin and bare with it. And keep badgering!!
