Chevening English language requirement: break down of scores

In order to receive a Chevening Scholarship, all applicants must demonstrate which they have fulfilled Chevening’s English language requirement by 16 July 2020. We advise all applicants to ensure they have fulfilled the English language requirement as early as possible by either:

• Taking an English language test.
• Claiming an exemption based on the UKVI categories that are exempt.

In the event that you fail to illustrate that you have met the desired English language level by 16 July 2020 or are not able to illustrate that you qualify for an exemption, the application will not be successful.

English language tests

You are able to take tests as many times as required to meet Chevening’s English language requirement. Take note that Chevening will not pay for costs associated with English language testing. You are responsible for paying and booking for expenses associated with these tests.

Chevening accepts English language tests from five providers:

• Academic IELTS
• Pearson PTE Academic
• TOEFL iBT
• C1 Advanced (formerly Cambridge English: Advanced CAE)
• Trinity ISE II (B2)

The English language test should have been obtained from one of these simple providers on or after 1 2018 october. That you have booked a test date so that you can obtain the required results if you do not already have an existing eligible test certificate, it is your responsibility to ensure.

Applicants are not permitted to take pre-sessional courses to fulfil Chevening’s English language requirement. You’re going to be required to take certainly one of the English that is approved language unless you get into one of many exempt categories.

Applicants are not permitted to enrol on pre-sessional courses to fulfil their university’s English language requirement or just about any other conditions of a university offer. Any offer from a university with a necessity to attempt a pre-sessional course will be considered conditional.

In some countries, the availability of test centres is restricted, therefore we recommend you organise a test at the earliest opportunity. If there are no English language test centres in your country, you might be required to go to a neighbouring country to take a test. Please see your country page for further guidance.

Please be aware that the turnaround time for English language tests varies:

• IELTS results will soon be obtainable in 13 days.
• PTE Academic results is supposed to be available in five business days.
• TOEFL results is likely to be obtainable in approximately ten days.
• C1 Advanced results are going to be available in a couple of weeks for computer-based tests or seven to nine weeks for paper-based tests.
• Trinity results may be available in 21 days.

English language test outcomes are sometimes withheld or delayed due to auditing that is standard carried out because of the test provider. Please be aware that extensions to your 16 deadline will not be granted in any circumstances and applicants should, therefore, ensure that they take their test well in advance of the deadline july.

Make every effort to get ready for your English language test ahead of time. Easy methods to prepare for the tests and practise test papers are available for each for the test provider’s websites.
