He or she who fails the interview will be turned down; Submission of fake documents may result in restriction in entry in the future. However, to pass the interview does not necessarily mean that the applicant could finally get it.

JW202 stamped ‘checked’
My friend applied for a student visa recently and some of his documents were stamped ‘checked’. He tried reapplying but he was told he can’t use the jw202 anymore because of the stamp. He was told to bring another one but the university said it will take another 3 months to get another jw202 form.
Do you please have any suggestions? Because it’s almost his deadline for registration and he doesn’t know what to do.
Thank you.

Why did he reapply? Did his first application get refused? If so, he has to wait for a new JW202 letter.
