    KET Test Score

    Good afternoon, My fiance has received his KET Test results this morning (Level A1 - he scored 55). On the statement of results, he passed in reading / writing and speaking, whereas his listening is sitting just below the weak line (in the grey section, touching the weak line). Can anyone advise if this is classed as 'weak' in listening and acceptable for UK spouse visa purposes? I realise his overall score is fine, but do the Home Office get a breakdown of how he obtained the score? I have tried the HO for clarification, they just point me in the direction of their online guidance, I have contacted Cambridge English also, they tell me the HO guidance says 'weak' in speaking and listening, which is actually not what I am questioning, but whether touching the weak line in the statement of results is infact 'weak' Phew! It's confusing. I've attached a copy of the results. I wouldn't mind but he failed the test previously, but his listening was much higher on the chart first time round! Typical. Look forward to your advance. Kind regards, Ellen SOR.pdf
  2. Many thanks for your very helpful reply Eglegal. My fiancé has spoken to the authorities in Egypt this morning, and he has been told similar. My UK divorce decree stands from the UK Court in Egypt. It just seems strange that my marital status is 'married' in Turkey to my ex-husband. But I will deal with this eventually, as long as I know it's not compulsory at the moment and not preventing my new marriage. Out of interest, what is average cost to have my divorce 'recognised' at a Family Court in Turkey, including the cost of power of attorney etc? Thank you. Kind regards, Ellen
  3. Hi Linda, Thanks for the info. I am hoping it may be as simple as translating and presenting at the Turkish Consulate (I have already emailed the one in London and am awaiting a reply). I've also messaged the British Consulate in Egypt asking the same, but I could be forever and a day waiting on a reply The last thing I need is handing over my papers in Cairo to realise that I need something from finalised in Turkey also! Anyone else in the know? How can I go about 'registering' my divorce in Turkey, without my ex-husband or I having to go to Turkey. Thanks again, Ellen
  4. Good afternoon, I have a question for those who may be in the know. I am British, married in Turkey 15 years ago to my now ex-husband (Turkish). We divorced in the UK last year, after 5 years separated. In the 5 years we've been apart I've been living in Cairo for my job and met and been in a relationship with an Egyptian man for 3 years. Now that I am officially divorced, we wish to marry. I suppose my question is, that although my divorce was issued and is recognised in the UK, do I also need to register the divorce in Turkey, as I don't want any problems with my divorce paper when I get married in Egypt. If yes, how can I go about it? Are there any recommended lawyers I can use in Turkey / UK? I look forward to any helpful information. Thank you! Kindest regards, Ellen
