Customer Question

Hello, I have been in the UK since September 2002, which almost makes it 15 years of residence here, come September. I was very young when I first arrived so I used to go back to my home country, Korea, a lot when I was younger so when it got to the 10 year mark, at 2012, I knew that I had already surpassed the 540 day limit for IRL So I have not been going out of the UK mucn since then and according to my calculations, I am eligible to apply from September 2018 next year So with IRL applications, does is have to be calculated from the first entry to the UK or can I count 10 years back from the date I sumbit my application? Because I have been here almost 15 year now
