I just heard from my wife, who just had her test/interview at Scarborough. She passed (20/20) and the interview seemed to go well. The interviewer told her "congratulations" at the end (which i assume is a good thing), and said that she should hear back from them before December 4th (which would be exactly one year since the date she signed and mailed her application).
Congrats to your wife. What did she use to study for the test apart from Discover Canada? I have my test next week.

Did your friend apply from the same location ? I see that the speed of processing varies based on the location/centre that is processing your application.
I have a theory - 3 of my friends who went to did under/post grad school here got through in 4-6 months. I think they give priority processing to those who went to school here and everybody later. I see a pattern.

If there's anything, it has to do with verifying their language requirements, since they could've sent their degree as the language requirement document, not directly with the fact that they've gone to grad school. Maybe it's easier for the officers to verify a degree.
There's also the fact that some people "randomly" might be selected for extensive clearance.

Curious on the government calculation of it taking up to 12 months for citizenship. Does that 12 month clock start Running based on received date or AOR or IP?

Cheers, VFX

This theory does not apply. I got my PhD in ON, but dont see my application is processed faster... IP since March 20th...
