Secondary Education English Certificates

Recommended Posts

Guest happygolucky

:D

I have just been reading a post on the RPL help forum, which stated that any one as part of a pplication over the age of 18, needs to supply certified copies of secondary education in english to prove english education, even if you were born in here-

Has anyone who has submitted their DIMA apps had to supply this information.

I phoned my secondary school and asked them for a letter confirming that I was a native English speaker and the curriculum had been taught in English. This was sufficient... It was certainly an easy option! :wink:

Funnily enough, I have been left school about that amount of time and, when I phoned, it was still the same secretary and she said 'I remember you!!'

 

No doubt because I was so naughty!!!

 

Good luck :wink:

Bit more info for you - This statement was on my acknowledgement letter "A native born English language speaker is a person whose first spoken

language is English and who is the holder of a passport of the United

Kingdom (UK), Canada, New Zealand, United States of America (USA) or the

Republic of Ireland. If you do not meet these criteria, then you will be

required to provide an IELTS test completed within the last 12 months."

 

We didnt send any school certs.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
