I posted this in another thread and I am posting it here, hopefully, someone with precedented experience can help:
Question for those who can help:
Received AOR for the first app, which was received on Oct. 19th and had old form and unsigned photos but has the photo lab stamp, and I sent another app which was received on Oct. 23rd.
Should I wait till I receive the AOR for the second app or wait till receiving IP for the first one then submit a withdraw letter for the second app?
My concern, based on the CIC agent who told me that any app would be opened by an officer in the mailing room to see if it met the basic requirements, but it depends on his discretion of the second officer who will process either to accept the photos unsigned or refuse it and ask me to send a signed photos.
Signed means to have your name written on the back.

How do people receive their test invite?
1) email
2) by mail
3) only on Ecas?

If more than one, what is usually the order?

Used to be 2 and 3. But many (including myself) post C6 applicants have received an email and ecas update instead.
This could be included in the process changes IRCC has propably introduced to face the new applications' surge.

Thank you for your quick reply, did you get both of 2 & 3 in the same day or an email first?
