star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Home Office has suspended acceptance of all ETS tests taken and used in the <br>UK whist the scope of the issue is ascertained and to determine the number of people who <br>have taken a test and been involved in fraud. We have specialist teams in place <br>to undertake this analysis. <br><br>We are looking at all current and past applications. Anyone who is found to <br>have used or is currently trying to use evidence that they obtained dishonestly <br>can expect to have their leave curtailed and be removed from the UK or have any <br>outstanding application refused and leave the UK. We will also seek criminal <br>prosecution where appropriate and use all of the measures that we have <br>available. <br><br>Our reforms have curbed abuse by closing bogus colleges, making the application <br>process more rigorous and imposing more rules on colleges to improve course <br>quality. However, as the recent BBC Panorama programme highlighted, much more <br>needs to be done. <br>The Government will take all necessary steps, but our approach also requires <br>the education sector, particularly private or further education colleges and <br>those providing secure English language testing, to take on their <br>responsibility to tackle abuse.</p><p> </p>
