When I view or apply for a sitting, I take note of the applications received counter, this does give a useful impression how many applications are being received.
But on the odd occasions I have received a reply from the HO saying they have been overwhelmed by applications and it will take time to decide… the counter is still reading 0-3 applications!
Just wondering if its actually an accurate feature…
I also understand from another post that applications are stacked up in reverse order so the HO probably reads the last submitted application first? I appreciate that the HO does not have to select in order of application but its a bit off putting if you have put an application in early on a new posting only to think that its squashed down to last position of reading!
Anyone had similar thoughts or evidence about these points?
