EPR-YYYY-NNN-XXXXXXXX application number convention

Post by clavie » Thu, 26 Sep 2019 2:56 pm

Hi,
Just curious about the application numbers generated by the ePR system since it became online.
Do they reset the counter when they change the year?

It is purely their internal system. Why do you want to know those? Will knowing this affect your chances for the PR application?

As I wrote, pure curiosity, no hidden agenda in this anecdotal question.
If it's sequential per year it just provides the volume of applications to date.

They will surely make sure that it is not easily interpretable by general public.

Innit the truth! And rightly so.

So what’s if it’s sequentially numbered? How are you to know what’s the last number for the year? Unless you know you had the last appointment slot at say, 3.30pm on 31/12/2018. Then there are at least 2 main schemes namely PTS and family tie. Are they having the same referencing or indexing?
