Divine Trainings International ESOL SELT A1 Speaking & Listening

A 2-skills (Speaking & Listening) exam in English, aligned to the A1 level of the CEFR*. It is a Secure English Language Test (SELT) for UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) delivered through Divine Training’s global network of SELT Centers.

About the exam:

  • Consists of a short conversation online with a live interlocutor 
  • Duration 8-9 minutes
  • Each candidate is examined individually
  • Topics and tasks are based on practical experience

CEFR level A1 is the minimum requirement for the following visa types:

  • Further Leave to Remain
  • Representative of an Overseas Business
  • Tier 2 (Sportsperson)

Applicants with a higher language level can take an A2 or B1 Speaking & Listening exam, which also satisfies the application requirement.

After the exam, candidates receive a Test Report displaying 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.

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