The online application tracker, shows updated October 14, however, I haven't seen any updates on any categories (In process) till date of typing this post. Would calling the IRCC make a difference (I did read in one of the posts, that all they see is our tracker interface, but as per mixed opinions it is a nudge and for some people it expedited the process: could be subjective), or shall I just wait it out? I am fazed now, because it has been over 2 weeks, and sifting through posts on this thread - mine seems like maybe a possible one-off instance.

Following is my application timeline:
Location: Brampton
Physical Presence Days:1098
Application: (online)
Application sent: March 31st, 2021
Delivered: March 31st, 2021
AOR: August 24, 2021
In Process: August 25th, 2021

Also, acknowledging all the timely responses I've come across on this forum, on various posts from some incredible people, who are legit a blessing! Thank you!!

I pass the test but forgot to take the photo of my ID infact I took the photo of my self instead of my ID and then took my photo again before starting my test did 20 20 answer but they fail me on the basis of valid ID. And now it's been 4 weeks I am still waiting for re test request
I was very nervous even tho I prépare ao well but end up failing my test invalid ID .
I don't know when they gonna send me the 2nd test request .
4 weeks is not that long. My wife failed the test and is now waiting for over 8 weeks for the retest if it actually happens.

Hi, congrats! May I know when did you complete your test, which local office is processing your file and did you apply paper or online? Also did all of your other sections in the online tracker show as completed?

You will receive the test invite email 1 o 2 day before the start of the test window! Please keep us posted.
Read Discover Canada at least twice.

This is a sticky thread in this forum, it has summary of the book in English and French and a lot of websites to practice sample tests.

Notes from Discover Canada and Sample tests.

There a lot of resources in Youtube, audio book, practice tests, etc.

Hope this helps.

If your Background is not completed, you will probably be required to provide Fingerprints, but it takes 6-8 weeks after the ghost update to get the email from IRCC Vancouver. Calling IRCC doesn't help to speed up the process, they are only able to see what you see in the dashboard!!!

I have added your information to the spreadsheet
