It took them 7 months to go from processing to notice to appear for us - just hang in there. The office that is processing it can make a difference too.
I saw somebody here had their test in the morning and took an oath in the afternoon whereas it took 2 months for us to get a date, and now due to take the oath in 10 days. ( they did say 2-5 months though).
Oh geez that is frustrating!!Fingers crossed they sort mine soon! Mine went to Nova Scotia.
Congratualtions and good luck with the oath

Has anyone had the worst case scenario happen, where it isn't ever acknowledged due to their error?
It took 4 months from receipt for them to Acknowledge mine - could be February before you hear anything, if your timeline is the same as mine.
I just checked and mine is still saying "Processing".

Yeah I remember, so you are at the 6 month mark and waiting for your test date then?

Acknowledgement letter received today. Feels like an anti-climax.

I hope they move to processing it quickly. I remember also feeling very disgruntled about peoples timelines going way faster than mine, but in the end they did it in a little over the 12 months average so can’t complain as others got held up with random audit processes and took way longer. Oath on Monday!

Thanks. Will have to wait and see.

Already not impressed when logging to check the status - my home address was correct but my mailing address was my previous one, despite on my application form indicating my home address was the same as my mailing address. Nice one!

Pretty much - yeah, doing the practice tests and all that fun stuff - my wife is stressing about the test, I don't think she will have a problem lol.

I got myself pretty stressed about it too - no idea why the booklet is so detailed when on the day the test was so easy. I had all the dates of events in Canada’s history memorized and almost felt cheated when I didn’t need any of it.
Better that way than the other way round though I guess. I feel like it might be the final test of how badly do you really want this lol

Yay!!! I got the date for the test through - sorry I can’t tell anyone the test date, it’s a weird ritual I have, I never tell anyone the date of tests until after I’ve done it!

Can anyone tell tell me how long it will take roughly or how long I should allow? I’m on nights that week, my test is at 12.30pm, so I might not even need to take any time off if it’s only an hour or two.

I’m nervous now!!

Great news!
It’s not the test itself that took long - I was out of there in 5 minutes - we had to wait around afterward for our interview, (and they didn’t seem to do it in any particular order as we were both out first but were about 8th for interview) so depending on how many peole are there I would probably allow 2 hours.

Thats a great help, thanks....i’ll probably ask if I can come in late just to be safe, I don’t want to be stressing about work as well as the test!

What kind of things do they ask in the interview? I thought the interview was only if you fail the test?

They interview everybody. They ask you to produce all your travel documents so they can check them - they are verifying that there are no trips in there you haven’t told them about, and that all the trips that you have told them about have the right date stamps. (We had to supply additional paperwork as we didn’t have entry stamps for the UK so they couldn’t confirm what date we had left Canada for two of the trips we took. Had to hunt around for an itinerary/hotel receipts etc to give them).
Other than that it was just a general chat really, they are just verifying that everything is straight.

No problem.
It was just Notice to appear, PR card, passports, drivers licence or equivalent ID, I took my original certificate of my language test but she said she could see I spoke English perfectly well and didn’t need to see it lol
I was extremely nervous too - it’s stressful when you’ve expended all that effort on something and it comes down to this. I can tell you you’ll be fine (as everyone did to me) but if you’re a worrier like me it will make no difference lol.
Good luck!
