Worrying reduction in number of approved English language tests

The Home Office have recently published new guidance on the acceptable tests and test providers for the requisite English Language tests. The approved centres have been limited somewhat severely.

This means that tests by certain organisations will not be valid after a certain time. For instance, it is our understanding that City and Guilds tests must be taken before 5th April 2015 and are only valid until 5th November 2015.

The main concern is that for applicants outside the UK there will shortly only be one approved provider of the English test, namely IELTS SELT Consortium. See :
