Life in UK and your Original Degree Certificate is sufficient ...

As long as your degree is seen on the points calculator its fine ... you DONT need anything from NARIC ... dont waste your money !

Hi Aruni,

I seem to be a bit lost here. Would you be able to guide me please. I am using the following link for points-based calculator: https://www.points.homeoffice.gov.uk/gu ... ment.faces
Unless I am doing something wrong or missing a step, I am not able to see the 20 points for my degree. Is there another link that I am possibly unaware of. How do I get to see the attributes under education please. I would be grateful for your reply. Thanks in anticipation.

Try and use the points based calculator as a tier 1 applicant.

Below is the link to the pdf http://www.sendspace.com/file/kvkuyc

Hi Aruni,

Just another question please. I am planning to apply for my ILR as a Tier 2 (General) applicant with my wife as PBS Dependant. The "Who can use the points-based calculator" page on the points-based calculator link is not clear as to whether PBS dependants can use that or not. Can we still use that to demonstrate to UKVI that my wife's qualification is up to the mark? I would be grateful for your reply.

Regards,

Jai

Hi Jai,

We are just trying to check if the degree is being recognised and gives the required points. Using it as a tier 1 applicant should not be a problem. If you use it as a tier 2 applicant, you will not be able to see if you get atleast 20 points for education. Your wife should be able to use it as well.

All the best ..

Hi Aruni,

Thank you for your reply. If I've understood you correctly, we operate the calculator as though we are Tier 1 applicants (although in reality I am a Tier 2(General) applicant) merely to demonstrate that our respective degrees get at least 20 points and 10 points under English respectively (I think the English bit is available operating as a Tier 2 applicant). Whew! I think you've just taken a weight off my shoulders :-). Thanks once again.

Kind Regards,

Jai

Hi,

I am planning to apply for my ILR. I did raise a new topic earlier, but realized there is already a related topic.

I have done my Bachelor of Engineering from Mumbai University (4 years) and my wife has done her Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery (5 years). After reading the posts, I think I need to provide these docs for both of us:
- University Degree Certificate in English
- Letter from College confirming degree was taught in English
- PBS calculator proof.

I already get 30 points for degree and 10 points for English language when I use PBS calculator as I applied for Tier 1 visa on 18Mar2009. However my wife joined me after few months.

How do I prove the points for English Language for my dependent wife? She applied for her TIER 1 dependent in July 2009 when the rules were changed and Bachelors degree was no longer awarded any points?

Do we have to produce a UK NARIC letter for her or she is applicable to the rules when I applied my Tier 1 visa for first time.

Thanks,
Vish

Hi Vish,

Bachelor of Homeopathic is a Bachelor's degree, so if you select Bachelor's degree (Ordinary/Pass)/ Honors as applicable. You should get 30 points if the university is there in the Awarding Institution list. Give it a try before applying for a NARIC certificate.
In her case, you are using this tool only to prove that her degree is equivalent to UK bachelor's degree and it has required point.

Best Regards
Jaya

Please check once again that the points calculator is awarding points for education and English language as the NARIC keeps updating the calculator. You can do the same for your wife as well. Print outs of PBS calculator should be good enough.

I had recently applied using NCS and i was told that we need to show UK NARIC letter along with our degree certificates. Its always a risk of taking PBS calculator print out.

As we deal with council, they may not be updated with PBS calculator and we may end up in difficult situation...

mates, prepare yourself well before you give in ur application.... it is costly

Council not being updated with PBS calculator doesnt matter as they are mere facilitator for our application, i,e, they will collect and forward it across to home office where they have to adhere to what they mention .... so in short if you show up on PBS calculator only the printout is sufficient along with degree certificate.

Hi all,

My wife is my dependent and her degree is recognized in the pbs.
using the calculator for tier 1, i get the following questions:

How would you like to claim points for English language skills?
I am a national from a majority English speaking country
(does not apply)
I have a qualification comparable to a UK Bachelor degree that was taught in English
(did not apply for NARIC certificate)
I have passed an approved English language test
(did not take an exam)
I have already proven my English language skills in a previous Tier 1 or HSMP application
(she has not done this in the past because she was dependent of mine)
I do not want to claim points for English language skills (your application will be refused, unless your assessment refers to a settlement application - see Help below)
(obviously not this.)

so what do you choose to get the english language 10 points then for dependents?

assuming that this printout of pbs calculator still holds..
"a printout from the points-based calculator with the equivalent level of your degree and the level of English"


thanks!

If your degree is there in PBS, it is comparable to a UK Bachelor degree/ master's degree as the case may be. As PBS is maintained by UK NARIC.

Hi

When i switched my immigration status from pws to Tier 1 General on October 2010, I was able to get 30 points toward my Post graduate Diploma in Business Adminsitration ( Level 7 ) and got my tier 1 sorted that time.

Now i need to apply for naturalization and it is not giving me any points towards the point base calculator, but my collage is still listed on the calculator.

Please advise if i can use the 2010 assessment when i applied the Tier 1.

Despite all that i have the following qualification.

1. Bsc computer sciences from Preston University Pakistan
2. Post Graduate Business Administration Level 7 Diploma from UK
3. Also i have got credit hours for my MA Management from South bank University but did not finish my dissertation and did not get the degree yet and got the credit hours in hand toward it.

Please advice regarding the points and if there is no alternate then is that worth comparing with NAric with all these qualification and credit hours in hand.

Please advice i am so confused at the moment.

My immigration History - WP -> Tier1 -> ILR , now eligible for Cizenship.
Regarding English Language requirement, in PBS
Qualifications - My Master's degree scores 35 Points and my Bachelors "0"

Select the Tier for which you are applying. - Tier 1 (High-Value-migrants)
Select the category of Tier 1 for which you are applying. - Tier1 (General)

And now , under Qualification

I am planning to apply for naturalisation for british citizonship. Has anyone here successfully applied for Naturalisation with Points Based Calculator print out instead of a NARIC certificate for your degree as a proof for English language?
(Note : After rule change in Oct 2013)

Thanks
