How does the HO count working days?
 
My bio was taken on the 18th of March, 2018 but it was a Sunday in my home country. And today is the 7th of June is considered to be 55 working days based on my calculations
I called HO just now they told me it's 59 working days and tomorrow will be 60 and I'll have the right to escalate..I'm confused who's calculation is right?

I make it 55 days as well. For the sake of a week you can wait to be sure if you wish.

hi there thanks and I wish the same
They didn't send any emails and the TLS contact in Alexandria did not notify me after calling the home office several times we found that the decision was made on the 57th working days we waited for extra ten working Days and I received the passport
It dependson the service you are using
Standard 60 workingdays or priority 30 working days
In my opinion add more ten working days to feel less stressed
