Sorry, but my hearing aid no working great right now and I’m afraid I’ll not understand exactly what you’ll say me.

You will only be able to naturalise when you have had your ILR for at least 12 months. You need to sit for and pass your life in the UK exam. If you don’t have a degree from a UK university or a degree from abroad that has been assessed to be equivalent to a UK taught degree you should also pass the English Language Exam.

Once you have these two you can apply for the citizenship on line. They will need the letter that you said you received confirming your ILR and lawful residence in the UK for the relevant period (generally 5 years unless of you are married to a British citizen when you can rely on 3 years).
you will need proof of your ID, proof of lawful residence; proof of address. They will check that you are not a person of bad character so any criminal convictions, cautions. Warnings, reprimands, civil judgements and penalties will have to be declared.
the fee to pay is £1.330.00

i hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience before logging off. All the best
