Eligibility criteria: Married to British Citizen
Language criteria met (UK degree, exempt countries, PBS used documents, NARIC, or B1 test): PBS used documents. (See Below note).
Current nationality: Indian

The language criteria met - This section gave me a scare since I had taken only the single page printout of the qualifications. Apparently we need the complete filled pdf. NCS checking lady was kind enough to get that printout. Another issue I faced was that, when I printed it, it was Tier-1 (Till April02015). Now, Tier-1(General) is completely removed from points-based calculator. So, went ahead with Tier-2 (Skilled Worker).
Keeping my fingers crossed, due to this.

Thanks,
Vicks.
