Guys,

Really stressing out about this. My wife is trying to find out about a suitable test center, first she was told that it HAS to be IELTS (too advanced for her). Then told KET, and now informed about ESOL.

is ESOL accepted? She is thinking about enrolling with these people in Lahore. ....:::::GLOBAL IMMIGRATION MANAGEMENT:::::.....

But im skeptical.. because based on UKBA document of accepted english language exams, they mention that Scores must be verified using the Cambridge English online system. is ESOL and KET the same? Based on the doc is says KET (previously known as ESOL), which makes me think it is, but then ESOL exam only has 2 elements (speaking and listening and not the rest).

Are the results going to be available on that system for the ESOL exam?


Because the only exams that can be verified on this online system (https://verifier.cambridgeenglish.or...?ReturnUrl=%2f) are mentioned here: (https://verifier.cambridgeenglish.org/User/ShowExams) and ESOL exam is not mentioned.



Based on the above, when UKBA Immigration officers try to verify the ESOL result online they will not be able to find or verify it; right?

The tests that are approved are on the Cambridge site which are KET and A1 city and guilds which are the basic ones if english is not fluent.

@MissyL my wife also is taking CITY AND GUILDS A1 ENGLISH test in Pakistan, she is doing her test on the 28th and they say the results come in 4 weeks and the certificate in 7 weeks. My question is the city and guilds test do they have online verification where you can check online. this is so I can just apply after result is given 4 weeks and not after 2 months which is way long to wait for certificate. hope you can give some advice as your husband also doing city and guilds.

hey,
Sponsorship undertaking form is necessary. i applied for spouse visa in May and got my visa in just 3 weeks and my husband send me that sponsorship undertaking form with other documents.

if your wife's english is basic then book A1 test for her ielts could be difficult for her.

KET has more than 2 elements...when you refer to A1, what do you mean? What exam did you actually take and from where? and where do you verify your results online?
