6 week negative 4th gen test conclusive?

I think some of you may have read my previous post about my hiv scare, of unprotected oral (msm) me giving, no ejaculation.

anyway i have had 2 tests

3 weeks post exposure (4th gen duo) - negative
6 weeks post exposure (4th gen duo) - negative

my sexual health advisor was surprised to see me return and joked about it 'not you again' in a friendly way of course. I also made it extremely clear to her and made a point about asking for guidelines with testing.

She said that here in the UK, testing guidelines will soon be changed in terms of the 3 month window period. she said with the UK's testing technology, 6 weeks is now pretty much conclusive. I asked 'will i need to return for another test after 6 weeks?' and she insisted 'no.' not even a, 'you might want to test at 3 months just to be sure'. The answer was just an outright NO, and she said in her experience a 6 week result is conclusive.

is this true?
