New English requirement for all applicants for indefinite leave to remain

As we previously announced in our news article of 11.06.2012, from 1st October 2013, all applicants for indefinite leave to remain (settlement) will be required to show an English language ability to level B1 CEFR in addition to passing the Life the UK Test, unless they are exempt.  Applicants over the age of 65, as well as those with a mental or physical impairment which prevents them from being able to pass the test, will be exempt, as they are now.
