What is A2 Test?
A2 Test is one level up from A1 Test. The Home Office has introduced the A2 test so applicants can improve their English further after passing the A1 test for their first application.
You can only do A2 test in UK at Trinity College London or IELTS SELT Test Centres. Old or other ESOL qualifications will not be accepted by Home Office.
The Trinity College London A2 Test is called GESE Grade 3 and is a 7 minute Speaking & Listening Test – one to one with an examiner.
Who needs to do it?
Applicants extending their spouse visa before their first 2 1/2 years spouse visa expires must do A2 test at a Home Office approved centre or their application will be refused and they might be given a discretionary visa or a 10 year route partner visa.
Applicants on a 5 year Parent of a Dependent Visa before their first 2 1/2 years visa expires must do A2 test at a Home Office approved centre or their application will be refused and they might be given a discretionary visa or a 10 year route parent visa.
Call us to find out which other applications require the A2 Test.
How LPC Can prepare?
LPC can provide a free 10 minute Immigration Advice to establish what Home Office Visa you are and what application you need to submit to Home Office.
Once we establish which extension application you need to submit i.e. 5 year spouse visa route or parent dependent on a child route or 10 year marriage visa route then we can enrol you on the A2 course.
We have prepared and helped many candidates pass the A2 test first time since it was introduced by the Home Office.
We will go through the questions and answers which the Trinity College examiners will ask and ensure you know how to reply and ask questions.
Once you are prepared we will do a mock test similar to the real test and book your test.
