NOTE: LC conversions are being used in the Entry time file this year, this should not affect the entries as SC times used above as these will be converted and be within the LC time. This will need to be checked by us if you have a short course time very close to either a consideration or entry time as the conversation can convert a qualifying time to a non-qualifying time is some cases. It is therefore really important you request your entries as soon as you can.
