英国内政部:中国考生用托福成绩申请英国留学仍有效

英国内政部和美国教育考试服务中心(ETS) 发表联合声明:在英国以外参加考试并申请签证的考生并不受此次事件影响。英国内政部已经确认申请人在英国以外参加考试并申请签证的,托福和托业成绩依然有效。这些申请会照常由移民局官员审核。

针对近期美国教育考试服务中心(ETS)的考试项目在英国被暂停事件所引发的一些疑虑 ,英国内政部和美国教育考试服务中心(ETS) 发表联合声明:在英国以外参加考试并申请签证的考生并不受此次事件影响。英国内政部已经确认申请人在英国以外参加考试并申请签证的,托福和托业成绩依然有效。这些申请会照常由移民局官员审核。以下是声明原文:

  “As there has been some confusion regarding the recent suspension of ETS tests in the UK, the Home Office and ETS have collaborated to provide this clarification to the higher education community.

  The UK Home Office has directed ETS to suspend TOEIC and TOEFL testing at this time in the UK for those who plan to use their scores for UK immigration purposes. This action was taken after evidence of fraudulent TOEIC testing in the UK was presented in the BBC program Panorama.

  The TOEFL test was not involved in any way in the fraudulent activities reported in the Panorama program. However, as the Home Office license is with ETS as a whole it covers both the TOEIC and TOEFL tests. As a result of the suspension of the TOEIC test, the TOEFL test was also suspended.

  At this time, individuals already in the UK who are planning to apply for a visa may continue to use a TOEIC or TOEFL test to provide evidence of English proficiency for their application but applications submitted from within the UK with a TOEFL or TOEIC score will be set aside at this time.

  For individuals who are both applying for a visa and testing outside the UK there is no change. The Home Office has confirmed that TOEFL and TOEIC tests may continue to be used when a person is both testing and applying for a visa outside the UK. The application will be reviewed by immigration officials as before.

  Over the next 30 days ETS will work with the Home Office to provide information and take any necessary actions in order to restore confidence in the TOEIC test.”

  针对近期美国教育考试服务中心(ETS)的考试项目在英国被暂停事件所引发的一些疑虑 ,英国内政部和美国教育考试服务中心(ETS) 发表联合声明如下:

  英国内政部已经要求美国教育考试服务中心目前暂停在英国进行的用于移民目的的托福和托业考试。在英国广播公司(BBC)的《广角镜》栏目揭露英国托业考试中存在的造假问题之后,英国内政部采取了这一举措。

  托福考试并没有涉及此次《广角镜》栏目报道的考试造假行为。但是由于英国内政部的许可是授权给美国教育考试服务中心的,包含托业和托福两个考试项目,因此暂停托业考试也导致了托福考试被暂停。

  目前,已身在英国的个人考生如计划申请签证,依然可以提交其托业及托福考试成绩,作为其英语能力的证明,但是从英国国内提交的使用托业和托福成绩的申请将被暂时搁置。

  在英国以外参加考试并申请签证的考生并不受此次事件影响。英国内政部已经确认申请人在英国以外参加考试并申请签证的,托福和托业成绩依然有效。这些申请会照常由移民局官员审核。

  在未来30天内,美国教育考试服务中心会向英国内政部提供必要的信息并采取一切必要措施以重建对托业考试的信心。
