Hi! Just a bit of background on me to provide context: I'm 17, an EU citizen, and I've lived in the UK since 2012 (I've pretty much grown up here). I speak fluent English and I even take English Lit at A Level. It is not the first language I've learned, but I also feel the most comfortable communicating in it.

I'm filling out the personal details for my UCAS application and one of the sections is on whether English is your first language. I'm conflicted as to how to answer it - do I go by technicality or fluency? If I go by technicality, I would then have to give information about IELTS and/or TOEFL, neither of which I've done. Does this mean I have to take the IELTS?

If any EU citizen / immigrant / first generation student has applied to UCAS, I would also massively appreciate any sort of advice on how to navigate this whole application process from that aspect.

Thank you!

The answer to this question doesn’t affect whether you are asked to take an IELTS or other English test.

Each uni will asses your listed English qualifications, as well as your recent residency and education to determine this.

Usually if you have been in an English speaking country, receiving A level education in English, you will not be asked for IELTS.
