B1 Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking

A 4-skills (Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking) exam in English, aligned to the B1 level of the CEFR*. It is a Secure English Language Test (SELT) for UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) delivered through LanguageCert’s global network of SELT centres.

 

  • Consists of a Written (Listening, Reading, Writing) and Spoken (Speaking) component
  • Both components can be taken on the same day or within 14 days of each other

CEFR level B1 is the minimum requirement for the following visa types:

  • Tier 2 (General)
  • Tier 4 (General) – student visa (below degree level)

Applicants with a higher language level can take a B2, C1 or C2 Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking exam, which also satisfies the application requirement.

After the exam, candidates receive a Test Report with their score and unique reference number (URN). The URN must be included in the visa application.

Visa requirement information is subject to change. Applicants should refer to UK Government guidance on English language exams for visas and are responsible for ensuring they take the correct exam.

Candidates are advised to contact their sponsors to confirm which CEFR level is required before registering for an exam.

*Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), developed by the Council of Europe, is widely used to describe levels of language proficiency.

LanguageCert SELT exams are only available at SELT Test Centres. LanguageCert SELT exams cannot be taken online with remote, live invigilation.

All LanguageCert SELT exams must be taken at one of our global SELT Centres.
