Hi all,

On behalf of my wife and her application:

I had filled out the FLR-M form section 8 (ELR) with:

Qualification obatined: MBBS
Subject: Medicine
Awarding Institution: Punjab Medical College (PMC)
Country of Study: Pakistan
State within Country: Faisalabad
Length of course: 5
Year of award: 2012

however it is no longer exempt from my understanding.

She has undertaken an IELTS academic test result. Is this something we can use? I am confused how to fill out section 8.4 if this is the case.

Am unsure on

Title of qualification
Level of qualification (She was awarded CEFR level C1 - so presumably this).

Which body awarded the test (it was IETLS but unsure what IELTS SELT Consortium is).
What is the SELT number?
Awarding body is Cambridge English (as this appears on form?)
Award reference number (unsure what this given the form asks for 2 numbers, one SELT and this one).

Kind of stuck here.

Can someone help please?

Thanks

They only accept IELTS LIFE SKILLS or IELTS GENERAL for UKVI
I submitted IELTS academic in April this year and got a refusal letter in July.

It doesnt matter what score your wife got, they only care if they can find her information in the UKVI system.

This fileis showing what test they can accept, you can check it properly.
(I cant post a link, so you have to google it. )

IELTS UKVI means when you do your test, there is a camera in the room too. So they can make sure you don't cheat.

Thanks for that... Seems a bit ridiculous if I am being honest. C1 level is more than what's required so I don't know what the deal is with that. Slightly miffed to be honest.

Anyway. I have 2 options now then unless anyone can suggest otherwise. Either my wife takes the ukvi test or we apply to naric for a statement of comparability. The thing is is there a way to check if the degree is comparable? Don't want to end up wasting money. I had hoped to apply for an appointment early November but I think I should wait now to see what happens with this.

Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help so far.
