When did you arrive in UK?
What visa did were you on and what visa are you on now?
In order to apply for ILR under a student visa one must be in the UK for a period of 10 years. Therefore the first year you were here is not permitted to count towards the required 5 years to get ILR after you have been on work permit.
You will attain the required 5 years on your working visa on 16 August 2011 and would at that point be eligible to apply for ILR then. This is what you should do. ,You can see a solicitor a month or two before the expiry of your visa in order to prepare the application for you.
