Hi Guys !!
Need a big time favour !!
I have my ILR appointment this month end and i thought i had covered everything but then stumbled upon the NARIC certificate. I have gone through the FAQs for ILR and even then i am not satisfied.
Kindly request you to provide the below clarification on Knowledge of Language evidence.
My First Entry to UK granted on August 2011 and for that, evidence for Knowledge of Language submitted was Original Degree certificate and Naric certificate. Visa Granted successfully.
Tier 2 General Extension granted on August 2014 and for that NO evidence was provided for Knowledge of Language as it was successfully met in the previous application. Visa Granted successfully.
So my question is even for the ILR application, there is NO need for any evidence for Knowledge of Language??
Also as per the document "Knowledge of language and life in the UK -V19.0 published for Home Office staff on 20 June 2016"
Page 34 the below is stated.
"Before 6 April 2016, a PBS online points calculator printout, showing 10 points has been awarded for English language could be submitted, together with the original degree certificate, to satisfy the English language element of the Knowledge of Language and Life in the UK (KOLL) requirement.
The points based calculator was turned off on 6 April 2016. An official statement from UK NARIC must be obtained before applying. Further information is provided on http://www.naric.org.uk/visasandnationality
If we have previously accepted a degree qualification as meeting the requirements for an earlier application, and leave was granted, we will not need additional confirmation from NARIC. If the qualification has not previously been used for an immigration application, or the previous application was refused, the applicant must obtain confirmation from NARIC that it meets the relevant criteria
Based on the above official UKBA document, since my earlier leave was granted there is no need to submit any evidence for Knowledge of Language while applying for ILR ?
Kindly request you to clarify this ??
Pls request you to let me know as my ILR date is impending and thanks in advance for your clarification.
