answer text <p>As part of our commitment to improving the application process for customers, feedback during both the private beta 1 and 2 phases and the public beta phase was sought via a voluntary online survey. In total, 1,330 applicants completed the survey during private beta 2. Of these 61% of customers said they would speak highly of the application process, 19% said they would be neutral, 19% would be critical and 1% said they did not know.</p><p>Changes were made to the system as a result of this feedback, ahead of the public beta test phase. In the public beta test phase, 75% of applicants completing the survey said they would speak highly of the application process, 15% said they would be neutral and 11% would be critical. With regards to completing the application form, in the public beta phase 81% said completing the form was either easy of fairly easy with a further 8% finding it neither difficult or easy.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The total number of applications received since the testing of the scheme began on 28 August 2018 is now over 600,000, and we received over 50,000 applications in the first weekend the scheme was fully live. <br> <br>In total, over 230,000 people applied during the three testing phases of the EU Settlement Scheme. Over 31,000 of these people applied during the two private beta testing phases and we do not consider that this was a low turnout or that it needs investigating. It was not our intention to process high volumes during these phases, which were implemented gradually to bring the systems up to scale in a controlled way. This gave us a valuable evidence base from which to assess the application process and allowed for incremental improvements to be made in response to applicant feedback</p><p><br>We have been clear that applying during the testing phases was voluntary and EU citizens will have until 30 June 2021 to apply, in line with the draft Withdrawal Agreement, or until 31 December 2020 in the event of no deal.</p><p><br></p>
