This may not be possible as the clinic that will conduct the medical examination may require an interview appointment letter. If this is the case, then the people who were having the medical exam 6 weeks prior to the interview would have possessed such a letter.

Try your medical exam questions in the UK forum because these replies from Morocco and China are of no help to you. Better to ask from a pool of people who have done CR1 through London.

Hey there !!

Yes as soon as you have your case number you can book it. Once NVC receive your case you'll have to wait upto 15 business days for your case number though. Mine was about 9, but it can vary. Just keep calling them everyday to see if you have your case number yet.

I booked mine 2 days after I received it, you cant book it for more than a month in advance though, so have a date in mind you want it :)

NVC will take into account the expedite, however NVC is mostly upto you. How quickly you pay the fees, send in paperwork etc. If you get an RFE you'll get held up a bit, so check over everything multiple times.

If your fast and have no RFE's you can clear NVC in under a month :) Also it seems if they are aware of an approved expedite they will assign you a slightly earlier interview date. Most of us have to wait 4-6 weeks after CC for one, but if you have an expedite you will probably get one within 2-3 weeks of case complete.
