To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps her Department is taking to help support students who were falsely accused by Educational Testing Service of cheating in its Test of English for International Communication; and if she will make a statement.

We believe that the changes the Department has made since 2019 have already brought significant redress and we have been able to grant leave to many who might have otherwise been refused.

In view of this, we believe there are at present sufficient measures in place for individuals affected by ETS: TOEIC fraud, including obtaining the voice recording of their TOEIC test from ETS. We also believe, in light of the Upper Tribunal’s findings in DK and RK reference [2022] UKUT 00112. 23214, this is the fairest and most objective way in which an individual can challenge the allegation before them.
