Just an update.. It might be helpful to those who are in my situation. Today I went to the Application support center and I was able to have my biometrics taken. They said that they usually consider the case as "abandoned" only if the applicant doesn't show up within 90 days.

I'm so relieved :)

Just a sidenote to anyone else reading your report.

If'n you miss an ASC appointment for biometrics,

take the appointment letter and GO IN after the scheduled date,

as

usually you'll be let into the building,

and

usually you'll be allowed to handle the biometrics stuff .
