Do you know the order Bangladesh high commision checks the documents?
Were you requested to submit any documents while the first stage visa was in process?
The usual wait is 6-9 months for first stage and 6-8 months for second stage.
I hope they do them in order of receiving them! LOL But it depends on ASIO and how long the external security checks take. Usually the department of immigration part doesn't take long at all, it is the external security checks that take the most time!
I was not asked to submit any further documentation, but that is because I am pedantic and I added about 100 photos and so many stat decs.

Good luck and hang in there.
