    Default ESOL Entry 3 (highest) is that enough for ILR

    Hi, bit confused regarding ILR VISA ,my wife is soon to start on esol course at a accredited collage, they are starting her on level 3 after being assessed (talking and writing for the course teacher) will that be sufficient to obtain ILR or will she still have to take life in UK test

    many thanks alan & rapeeporn

    Normally it is just a need to show progression to the next level. But the Life in the UK test is normally for those at Level 3.

    I would think that you would probably be better trying to take the test rather than doing the course.

    Hi Alan, I think Gary is right here, it is progression that they are looking for as long as the course she is on has citizenship content! Your wife's English written and spoken must be good to be assessed at level3.
    For your wife I would go with life in uk test and skip the course. My wife is doing the esol with citizenship course but that is because her English when she arrived here was poor! Much like my Thai is today!

    Wrong, wrong, and wrong Gary and Sijee. If she is STARTING at entry level 3 she was then assessed at entry level 2 by the college. Think about it guys. Why would she be learning a level of English she has already obtained. Alanr you have been given the CORRECT information by the college.

    She will have 'progressed' to Entry Level 3 once she has completed the course, you can relax.

    She WON'T have to take the Life in the UK test if she passes the entry level 3 test. So, yes you can relax

    Cardiffnoddy, OK not the best worded response but why am I wrong? I said
    Normally it is just a need to show progression to the next level.
    which is true is it not? So if she does take the course and progresses, she has passed.

    And also
    but the Life in the UK test is normally for those at Level 3
    which again is correct is it not?.

    I then gave my opinion
    I would think that you would probably be better trying to take the test rather than doing the course.
    How can that be wrong?

    Yes, it was indeed badly worded. Especially giving an 'opinion' that suggests she needs to take the life in the UK test.

    I am not sure that my post suggested she "needed" to take the test only that I thought it might be better being nearly at the standard considered for the test. After all a test is £34 and 1 hour a course is £hundreds and so many months.

    Anyway noddy, I apologise for my badly worded post and hope that the OP reads it in a better way than I wrote it having after sight of all other posts.

    hi gary no problem with your post , just thought i would mention the cost of the course, 126 uk pounds for a 8 week course so not too bad ,and as tobias say`s when she gets the certificate level 3 we can relax
    sounds a better option to us than to worry if she had to take life in uk test and not pass you never know
    thanks for everyone `s help

    That's not bad Alan. Hope she does well, improves her English and gets the pass she needs.

    Just for info, you can take the Life in the UK test as many times as you want and are prepared to pay for.

    Let us know how she gets on.
