I applied for ILR under 10 year route on 11/06/2012, and was refused on 19/12/12. The reason was that i was absent from the uk for 10months. I was absent for this time due to an administrative error made by uk border agency staff. apology letter from home office complaints and compensation team was attached and uk ba website states in this case a senior case worker and discretion should be used. none of this was done.
