Now separate English language test for spouse and partner pleas

The City & Guilds test scores now show ‘pass’; and there is a separate English language test for spouse and partner applications.


These are some of the amendments made to the list of approved English language tests for applications made under Tiers 1, 2 and 4 of the points-based system and for spouse or partner applications.

The other amendments include: For City & Guilds tests the documents required for a migrants application have been amended.

ETS have changed the way that the scores for their TOEFL ibt (internet based test) map against the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

The ETS TOEFL ibt now includes scores for spouse and partner applications.

There is a change to the web address for the TOEIC (The test of English for international communication) English language test.

Cambridge ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) have amended the title of one of their tests from ‘International Legal English Certificate’ to ‘Cambridge English Legal’.

The UK Border Agency added for Cambridge ESOL tests the minimum grade requirements are clearer and Trinity College tests now have a two years expiry date.

`When you make an application in an immigration category that requires you to demonstrate your English language ability, you must show that you have passed an appropriate test on the list’.
