In accordance with new UKBA rules, the following tests are only valid for two years for UK visa purposes: Bulats Online (certificated version), Ielts (Academic and General Training), Toeic, Toefl IBT, PTE Academic, all of the Certificate in Esol Skills for Life offered by Trinity College London, all the Integrated Skills in English (ISE) exams, and GESE exams.

This planner has been compiled in accordance with the list of English language tests that have been assessed as meeting the UKBA’s requirements from 18 October 2015. The Gazette assumes no responsibility for future changes to the lists that the Home Office puts forward.
