Thanks, it was B1. We have a photocopy but not sure if the test is still valid as it was more than 3 years ago.
Even if expired, it can still be re used.
Read paragraph 32D of FM-SE

However, if we want to use bank statements for our cohabitation evidence, will it be a problem if page 1 of the statement does not have the date that they were originally generated, and is it also a problem that they were only just sent now? As they were not actually sent when they were generated...

Hi, Just after some advice really.
