That's exactly what I was saying ! Ah, thank you...(Original post by Mike_123)
Why are people being so obnoxious here?
My advice would be to email them explaining your situation truthfully, then if they say they won't accept your test then you can ask them if it is okay to sit it between now at September. It's likely that your English has improved over the course of 2 years, so it's no big deal.
I fear I might be rejected although I met the requirements Watch

Their reply might be more reliving, but it's not necessarily correct. Just because you don't like an answer doesn't make it wrong. They can reject you, so Jenn saying they definitely won't is unrealistic. People have been rejected for similar things before - I've been on TSR for many years and have seen people post similar things.I haven't seen anyone with a one day out of date IELTS, but one day out of date is still out of date.
Not that I want to linger on this topic, but it's just to clear things up in case other prospective E.U students would read this thread:
You don't need to mention your English Language certificates on your UCAS application. It doesn't work like school qualifications. We know that universities need to know which qualification(s) we are completing in order to make an offer, but it's absolutely not necessary to mention your English language certificates as they can automatically form part of your offer. Indeed, depending on which qualification you have e.g French Baccalaureate, you may expect to meet a further English language requirement. I never mentioned I sat/ was planning to sit the IELTS on my application (i.e I didn't have any pending score for this), but my university still offered me a place and required me to achieve 6.5 overall in the IELTS, just as if I had a pending English language score on my application. So, it's not mandatory to mention it at all. Thankfully, I took the test in July 2013, so it's still valid.
Also, universities usually offer alternative options. The University of Manchester runs pre-sessional English Language classes for applicants who have failed to provide proof of English language competency/ missed their offer. Euphorie might qualify for this given that her IELTS will expire on the start date of her course. If Manchester does accept resits, she might also be able to take another IELTS test.
I'm not saying this is exactly how things are going to happen. I just doubt they would reject her just like that...
But then again, Manchester could refuse her sitting another test and not offer any of these.Last edited by Jenn.; 14-07-2014 at 09:02.
