star this property answer text <p>Parliament legislated to amend the appeals system in the Immigration Act 2014 so that an appeal only arises where a claim raising asylum, humanitarian protection or human rights is refused, where protection status is revoked and for deprivation of citizenship. Similar provisions are set out in the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016. Given the passage of time, many of those refused on the basis of alleged cheating in English language tests will now have arguable human rights claims. Even if refused, these will normally generate an in-country right of appeal.</p><p>The Home Secretary is considering the findings of the National Audit Office report in response to cheating in English language tests. He will then make a statement to Parliament.</p> more like this

Whilst there have been suggestions of other methods of fraud, no material evidence has been uncovered during the course of the criminal investigation to support these scenarios.</p><p>Furthermore at the time the Home Office commissioned an independent expert from the respected firm Kroll Ontrack to consider this issue.
