They said .."we have received your reply to our request but we cannot be satisfied from the documents available that you meet the KOE requirement and your application is refused".When they requested the said documents I replied to them with a letter pointing out the fact that :1) I hold an ACCA qualification which is a recognized organization on the ofqual register (the register of regulated qualifications) - recognition no. RN5113. Also note ACCA is only taught and examined in English2) I also attached my certificates as proof of the qualification.3) I also mentioned that if they still required me to complete the SELT that they should return my biometric residence permit as I would require this for the testAlso note I have also done Life in the UK test, which is also only examined in English.
On the application form (form AN) I picked the option which says 'A test that is on the Ofqual register' (Sec 1.23) and ACCA is on that register.
The rejection letter IS what they sent after they read this letter.
Why do you reckon a review could possibly lead to a different decision if they have completely ignored the fact that my ACCA qualification is a recognised body on the Ofqual register? Do you know if the same person who handled my case initially is going to be the one who reviews it? On what grounds and what should I write on the form? What if that is also rejected?
Do I have to send all the original documents back to them again with the reconsideration form?
Would they consider a review of their rejection if I do the SELT exam and send the certificate with the reconsideration? Or would that be considered as new additional information and not used to arrive at a decision to revoke the rejection?
Ok fine, I did bring it to their attention. All of it, including ACCA qualification being a professional qualification being recognised globally, it being taught and examined only in English and separately the fact that ACCA is a recognised ofqual member, I even included the registration number and a print out from the Ofqual website. In addition to that, I sent my copy of the Life in the UK which is only examined in English. Therefore, I have specifically brought all the above points to their attention in the letter that I responded with to their request for more information on my KoE.
Since I have expressly already brought this to their attention and it did not help, is that really going to help this time round?
