有关英国签证授权雅思考点缩减事件的雅思考试中心官方解释终于出台!

官方公告原文链接>>http://www.ielts.org/test_takers_information/ielts_in_the_uk.aspx

原文上面那一大堆英文都不用理会了,只要看最下面的please note部分就好:

Those who are applying for a Tier 4 student visa to a Highly Trusted Sponsor (HTS) to study a bachelor or postgraduate degree are required to meet the English language level set by the institution. All British universities and colleges accept IELTS results. This means you can apply with an IELTS result from any of the 1,000 IELTS test locations worldwide unless your institution has additional requirements. See www.ielts.org for a list of test locations.

如您准备申请 Tier4 学生签证以就读具有“高度可信担保方”身份的英国院校,您只需提交校方所要求的英语语言水平证明。所有英国院校认可雅思成绩。换言之,您可以在全球1000个雅思考点中的任意考点参加考试并使用所获得的雅思成绩作为申请英国院校的英语语言水平证明。

如果还是不明白,接着看FAQ里面更详细的解释:

Can I use any IELTS test result for UK visa application? 

If you wish to use an IELTS or IELTS Life Skills test result as part of your application for UK visa purposes (apart from some types of student visa), you may need to take the test at an IELTS test centre which is specifically authorised by UK Visas and Immigration for this purpose, and the test must be taken under conditions specified by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI).

如果您要使用雅思或雅思生活技能类成绩作为申请英国签证的一部分(一些学生签证类型除外)您需要在英国签证与移民局(UKVI)授权的雅思考点参加考试,考试也将在UKVI指定的条件下进行。

也就是说,申请Tier4 学生签证的中国雅思考生不受本次考点缩减事件的影响。在中国国内53个考点考取的雅思成绩(A类和G类)都被英国院校认可。请大家安心备考,考取好成绩。
