One thing that no one has mentioned is the TIME it takes to get AV'ed.
There are so many snags that can happen but at minimum you should get it in one day (if the admin updates right after your guy submits the into) and at most 2-3 weeks after submission. If you haven't gotten the tag under your name by then it may be due to the AV guy messing up and spelling your name wrong or something like that and the admin can't find it to update the status.
HOWEVER you're one of the lucky guys since you have a pretty high concentration of AV reps (so lots to choose from if some are busy or something like that), whereas areas like Vancouver a lot of the guys have just disappeared or are inactive.
Also where in Britain are you from? I'm actually thinking about going on an international exchange next year to Canterbury to study.
