I found this document on the Home office website (i know its called something else now) valid from 24 Feb 2014 but this document states clearly that SELTS (includes IELTS) validity dates are not applicable for citizenship applications. In other words, if you are applying for citizenship, your expired IELTS would be good enough as long as you meet their required standard of qualification. 8)

Look at page 34 last paragraph for above mentioned info.

Hope this helps others as it took me a while to sort it out myself. :lol:

You are in the wrong forum mate, plz post in the correct category. FLR(M) is for visa extensions and not for citizenship. :!:
