If you make a visa application to stay or move to the UK, you need to be aware of changes made by United Kingdom Visas & Immigration (UKVI).
In addition to the IELTS General Training and IELTS Academic tests, which you may already know of, a new test called IELTS Life Skills will be introduced.
Changes in the UK government policy will be effective from 6 April 2015. If you have taken your test on or before 5 April 2015, the result can be submitted to UKVI with your application until 5 November 2015.
