New English language testing for partners, in effect from 29-Nov-10, is not a requirement for spouse / partner of Tier 1 (General) or PBS migrants.
Any migrant who wants to enter or remain in the UK as the partner of a British citizen or a person settled here will need to show that they can speak and understand English, by taking an English language test with one of our approved test providers.
Guidance for applicants on English language requirement for partners wrote:Will this requirement apply to spouses/partners of migrant workers or students?
No.
It will not apply to spouses and partners of those in the UK on a temporary visa such as students or workers under the points based system.

Unnecessary immigration appeals to end
From next Monday, evidence submitted after a visa application has been made will not be considered.
Written ministerial statement on Section 19 of the UK Borders Act 2007
The Commencement Order will come into force on 23 May and will apply to all appeals heard for the first time against refusals of applications to remain in the UK under the Points Based System, regardless of the date that appeal was lodged. Appeals that have been part or fully-heard by the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) by this date will not be affected.

Changes to applications from overstayers from 1 October 2012

The 28 day period of overstaying is calculated from the latest of:
• the end of the last period of leave to enter or remain granted, or
• the end of any extension of leave under sections 3C or 3D of the Immigration Act 1971, or
• the point a written notice of invalidity is deemed to have been received, in accordance with paragraph 34C or 34CA of the Immigration Rules, in relation to an in-time application for further leave to remain.

It is also important to note the following statement included in HC 194:
7.18 wrote:Where an applicant submits an application before their previous period of leave to enter or remain expires, but the application is rejected as invalid after their leave expires, the 28-day window in which the application may be submitted as an overstayer will start from the date on which the application was rejected, rather than when leave expired.
