Hey all, I saw a recommandation on here about an app for taking practice quizzes. I have purchased it. I wanted to see, I have read the book à few times through and I'm absolutely falling these quizzes as only some of the info is in my book I got from the Government. Can anyone else relate to this? This app seems to have different info on it than the book.

Try the above and see how it goes.

I got first update on October 12 and second on 13th. Based on your experience and research, would you tell both as ghost update or upgrade to new tracker?
I also got the ghost updates on Oct 10th and Oct 11th and no change in status so far. Not sure if these are system migration updates or some movement

Hello Everyone,

I'm a 14th February online applicant with 22nd March AOR. several people with dates before, same as or slightly after have reported progress. I did receive a ghost update dated 7th October but after reading earlier comments, it just seems be common update that everyone received after tracking portal was upgraded.

Is it time to order GCMS notes to find out what's going on with my application? For those who applied and received one, how long is taking now on an average?

Thanks and wish prompt processing for everyone!

Me and my wife got a ghost update dated October 7, 2022. However, we just noticed it now and it does seem like everyone else a system migration update. We applied separately online as we were hoping to get it done faster.

Exactly the same as you (feb 15th application, and March 22nd AOR). I ordered GCMS notes august 15th. It finally came October 13th (says compiled on Oct 11th). Absolutely nothing in there.
I see that an officer was assigned my application and that my secondary office is Scarborough; but nothing moving.

IRCC chose to prioritize 2022 paper applications over all other applications. So most people would just have to wait, unfortunately. Calling, ordering GCMS, or emailing MP's would do nothing to help.
