star this property answer text <p>No applications for Restricted Certificates of Sponsorship have been refused in the period in question due to the cap being reached under Tier 2 General. The information requested is set out below. <br>Restricted Certificates of Sponsorship (RCoS)</p><p><br>Month Submitted Granted Refused as a result of the Cap being reached<br>Nov-18 2206 1919 0<br>Dec-18 2422 2018 0<br>Jan-19 1838 1597 0<br>Feb-19 2093 1691 0</p><p> </p><p><br>Applications can be refused as they don’t meet the criteria set out under Tier General. In addition, applications are rejected for being incomplete, withdrawn by the sponsor or kept under review to be decided at a subsequent monthly allocation panel. This accounts for the difference between the number of applications submitted in a month and the number of grants in the same month.</p> more like this
