[500 Student Visa] How many months before my course starts can I apply for my student visa? 3 months? 4 months? 5 months?

I want to apply for my student visa now because I just want to get it over and done with because visa applications give me anxiety. But my course starts in March, which is 6 months away. I think my genuineness might come into question if I apply right now - 6 months early. So when is the earliest I could apply without having my genuineness come into question? 5 months? 4 months? 5 months?

DOHA recommends at least 6 months but in actual, I have seen the processing time much higher so better opt for 3 months at least as processing time also varies based on the type of course you are taking. Check in detail about processing times and decide what suits best to your case
