Big delays for decision on ATAS Certificate

Any other international students that have had to apply for an ATAS certificate for their postgrad studies?

I applied for on back in mid June, however I had to reapply in mid July as I applied before my uni gave me the information I needed to fill-in a specific section in the application.

My estimated decision date for the first application was July 13 ( and it's well past that date now), whereas my second (current) application is estimated for a decision on August 14.

Worried that this will heavily delay my visa application to make it to the UK in September/October.

Anyone experiencing delays as well? Also would appreciate advice from anyone that has applied for an ATAS certificate in the past and those that have applied now and got their decision.

I'm overseas and so can't really call the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office unless I want an expensive phone bill, and I've tried emailing them before but no response whatsoever.

I know the pandemic has affected the time it takes to process, but I mean this is getting to be frustrating
