The UK Border Agency have stated that if you have submitted an application for leave to remain on or after 1 July 2013, they will consider it under the revised Immigration Rules which take effect on 1 July 2013 regardless of which version of the form you use.

Applications submitted on or after 1 July (other than on the BR2, BR3 or BR4) must be accompanied by the new fee. The UK Border Agency will not accept applications submitted with the incorrect fee.
