Do I still need to take the ILETS exam ?Watch
I got accepted to the University of Manchester with an A* in IGCSE English as a Second Language, which meets the standard for English language proficiency at UoM. Does that exempt me from having to prove knowledge of the English language when applying to a student visa ? Kindly note that IGCSE ESL is not included on the UKVI's approved list of SELT.
To confirm this, I would either speak to either their admissions team or the international office.
Don't quote me on this, but I have heard that unless you are a British citizen (or permanent residence?) you will most likely have to take IELTS and I don't think GCSE English really counts.
