Hi, Welcome to JA

When was the application submitted?

Did you submit a copy of your flight ticket?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I went and did my biometrics on the 10th of August

I see you should get a response/decision really soon. The ECO will be aware of when the course is due to start on the Certificate of Studies - CoS.

they then sent me an e-mail that I had to do a TB test but I have been living in singapore for the past 3 years and therefore didnt need to do a TB test
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
they told me that the application will be delayed which didnt make sense to me. i went and did the test regardless and sent the test within 3 days

TB Certificate is required for a Tier 4 Student visa. This is very likely the reason for the delay

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
How long do you think it will be ?

A TB Certificate is valid for 6 months and they should also be aware of the course start date. By next week a decision should be made, otherwise you should attend the centre and send a email
