hi
if you take the esol corse with citerzin content you do not need to take the citizen test as the esol corse covers it it sounds like your collage give you a bit of duff info.
but you have to stess to the collage thats what you want.
so that will save you a bit with not doing that . this is a change in the law for visas , why collages are charing now.
but try over collages and see what they say, my wife has just done entry level 2 and passed her 3 exams and the collage have done the letter for my wife to do her british citizenship. hope this helps a little.. tiny :confused:

hi jvc
it will be one of two. my wife ones says she passed her 3 exams of esol entry level two with citizen content . or there is another witch says she is doing the esol coures with citenzin content. either will do. but for british passport you have to pass entry level two for ilr you have to be on the corse...hope this helps a little.....tiny

I think there has been a bit of a misunderstanding here Tiny, for both ILR and/or Citizenship an applicant must have either have passed the Citizenship Test or attended and completed a combined ESOL/citizenship course.

In other words it is exactly the same requirement for ILR as it is for Citizenship and the British Passport.

Am i right in believing that my wife who has passed level 2 Esol is currently studying to take the citizenship test seperately and passes will have no problem with her ILR??

Upcountry,

Regardless of ANY courses she takes, if she passes the citizenship test (and you have the money for the ILR Fee) she will have only the other, relevant documentation and criteria to meet (as has been the case before the test) to get ILR, passing the test does not guarantee ILR if the paper work/marriage/conditions are not in order (the only other change from when we got ILR is the FEE).

Good Luck!

However, if she has taken an ESOL with Citizenship course and has progressed up a grade or passed the course then you should be provided with a certificate and this means that you only need to meet all the other criteria and fees WITHOUT having to take the test, make sure you have the certificate though!.

More good luck!
