New list of approved English language test providers
06 April 2011
Today UK Border Agency have launched a new list of English language test providers (PDF 253KB opens in a new window). When all of the transitional arrangements have expired, this new list will replace all existing lists of English language test providers.
For Tiers 1 and 2 of the points-based system tests that have been booked or taken with the existing lists of providers can be used in applications as long as they are received by the UK Border Agency on or before 17 May 2011. From 18 May 2011 only tests taken with providers on the new list can be used as part of applications for Tier 1 and Tier 2.
For those applying as a spouse or partner, you may use a test with an existing provider in an application received on or before the 17 July 2011. From 18 July 2011 all applications must be submitted with evidence from a provider on the new list published on the 6 April.
There are no transitional arrangements for Tier 4 of the points-based system as we are expanding the current list of providers. A test can therefore be taken with any provider on the new list from 6 April and submitted as part of an application.
