More Information about A1 / A2 Exam

The test is conducted by certain approved organisations (Cambridge, Trinity, ETS-Educational Testing Service) which are updated from time to time by UKBA. The above obligations (on the part of individuals wishing to join their partner or spouses oversees) are kept at minimal level with respect to their standards. The UKBA has taken necessary steps to make process simpler by keeping the level of test at A1 test standard of CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Wherein the applicants are required to clear just  speaking and listening aspects of English language which are necessary for day to day activities.

Keeping in view the basic level of the test and proper guidance the preparation requires 60 to 70 hours of training at the maximum. As the tests are conducted only by accredited agencies in the concerned countries therefore applicants are required to approach the same. They can avail the assistance of centres helping them with preparations. Certain amount of fees is also charged for the whole process and the candidates are required to deposit the same every time they undergo the test (if they are not able to clear it in one go).
