Dear XXXXX,

 

Of the tests on the list you mentioned I have IELTS certificate 3 components 7 and one 6, of other certificate also I have 7 for the one which I had 6. So with two certificates I have 7 which is C1 for all 4 components. Please tell me is it acceptable to UKBA two valid certificates?

 

Thanks,

Ali

Hi Ali,

I would say not, the critria is that you must have passed an English test. You have demonstrated that you can pass to the required level the various different constituent parts but have not shown that you can pass them in the form of one test.

It would certainly be a risk if you applied on that basis, and why take the risk would be my view.

Trust this clarifies, please click accept.

Kind regards,

Ali,

Any of the tests are acceptable provided you pass at the required level.

From your writing on your answers I would be surprised if you did not pass.
