What were grounds of refusal?

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
I think they said the information was not good enough. But I dont 100% remember
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
But there is no other reasons. As we started to study in sep 2020. And we got requested to send proof. Mine was ok but hers got rejected

Expert:  LawyerAk replied 19 days ago.

Under the Eu settlement scheme it’s usually to do with residence in the U.K. therefore if their were lack of documents to show residence these are grounds for refusal.

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
I do understand that. But I'm wondering of there is anything to do about it? Because she have been in England and studying by the university physically. But the complaint will be too late since we will start university soon
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 19 days ago.

She can appeal the decision but that’s a length process but I would need you to attach the grounds of refusal to advise further.

I require all four pages as this does not state the full refusal decision.
