Default SET (M) Language Requirements

Hi there,

My wife is coming up to her settlement visa via the 5-year spouse route.

One requirement I have kind of passed over is the language requirement.

For the initial Spouse visa (applied 2014) she used an IELTS Cambridge language ESOL exam (that she took in 2013).

For the FLR (M) extension (applied 2016) we didn't need to do another language test - as the original test was sufficient (as it had been used in the initial visa application).

For the SET (M) can we just use the same test? My assumption is that it will be the same as the FLR (M) application - we have proved it once, so no need to do another exam.

Am I correct?

Thanks in advance!

David

Your wife will need to undertake a new test , a B1 SELT approved English test .

if you have previously used a b1 then it maybe valid as long as it still on the approved list of providers .

oh ok. I will need to add it to the list of things to (last minute) do then . I thought we could rely on the fact it was ok last time.

For our information - is the test easy? I gather it is a simple listening/speaking test. (ie does my wife need to study at all? English is pretty much her first language now)

I sat IELTS B1 test in Feb this year for my ILR. It was quite easy (speaking, listening).
You are in the room with the examiner and another person (who sits the same test)
Examiner gives a subject to talk about, and you discuss it, and ask each other questions. Then each of you have to listen to a conversation played by examiner, make notes and after audio conversation stopped you will be asked few questions

It wasn't difficult at all (for a person who has certain level of English language skills)

Good luck
