My timeline:

Application Package + Transcripts delivered to IQAS: June 20, 2018
AOR2: July 20, 2018

Estimated date to receive ECA soft copy: September 20, 2018
This is similar to mine; our transcripts were delivered on the same day (June 20) but my AOR2 came a day earlier (July 19). Probably a matter of a few minutes difference.

I've estimated 12 weeks for the ECA completion while you've estimated 13 weeks. I'm hoping it'll be 12 weeks in the end.

I am confused...
How is the 12weeks being counted?

Is it from the date we get the AOR2 email?
Is it from the date ALL transcripts arrive at IQAS (There is a time lapse of about 3-6weeks after transcripts are delivered that IQAS actually sends the AOR2 email).

I am running out of patience.

12weeks are considered from AOR2.

The 12 weeks is counted from the day "the last of the required documents or payment of fees have been received by IQAS, whichever occurs last".

For example, if your application forms and transcripts are delivered but payment is yet to be received, the 12 weeks cannot start to count until payment is received. Also if payment is received and application form is delivered but transcript is yet to be delivered, the 12 weeks cannot start to count until the day IQAS receives the transcript. In the same vein, if the transcript and payment have been received but the application form is yet to be received by IQAS, the 12 weeks will only start to count from the day the application form is delivered.

Most people tend to receive their AOR2 email about four weeks after the last of their required documents is delivered (by this time the 12 weeks had started counting from 4 weeks earlier) so they eventually receive their ECA soft copy about 8 weeks after they received AOR2 email. I have observed this from the trend of people's timeline as they posted it and it is also my understanding of what IQAS have on their website regarding processing times.

Hope this helps.

Hi buddy,

I will bother you for sometime. Few queries.
1. I sent my docs to IQAS and was delivered on 2-Aug-18. Acknowledgement mail was received on 30-Aug-18. Based on your exp by when can I expect my ECA to arrive?
2. When do we get AOR2? and what is it for? I am not sending anything anymore, I have sent it all together.
3. I have sent my transcripts from Calcutta University(graduation) and PGDBA from SCDL docs together in one big envelope, Hope this would not be an issue.. You can share your experience on this,
4. Lastly, based on ur PGDBA from SCDL what did they grant you -
a. Three-year or more post-secondary credential, or
b. Two or more post-secondary credentials with atleast one being 3+ years, or
c. Master's or Entry-to-practice professional degree?

Thanks,
