==== 关于英语考试 ====
You will be awarded 10 points for English language where you have met the English language requirement in a previous grant of leave. This will be the case if you have ever been granted leave:
- under the Tier 2 (General) category under the rules in place on or after 6 April 2011, having provided evidence of having a knowledge of English equivalent to level B1 of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework for Language Learning or above;
应该是说只要2011年4月后曾证明过英语达到B1的话(i.e. 目前的Tier2工签)，换工作重新申请Tier2 General时就不用再重考了。
==== 关于工签转永居时连续时间的计算 ====
- removes the Tier 2 rule covering gaps in employment of 60 days
==== 关于换工作的流程顺序的建议 ====
It is recommended that you do not start work for your sponsor until you have received your biometric residence permit (BRP). However, on the basis of your approval letter, if you and your sponsor agree you can start work before you have your BRP, both you and your sponsor carry the risk of having no statutory excuse against a civil penalty if the BRP card is incorrect or withdrawn by us. You can continue working for your previous sponsor until the start date on your new Certificate of Sponsorship, provided your previous leave has not expired.
应该是说在新白 Certificate of Sponsorship下来之前，先继续给旧雇主打工，等收到通知CoS没问题了再辞职。
If any of your absences are in connection with employment you will need to provide a letter from the relevant employer detailing the purpose and period of absences, including periods of annual leave.
You will need to provide this information for the full 5 year continuous period. Therefore, if you are moving employers and are considering applying for settlement in the future, you may wish to request a letter detailing your absences before you move to your new post. If you are unable to obtain a letter as specified in the Immigration Rules, because your previous employer has ceased to exist for example, you should confirm this in writing when you make your application. The caseworker who considers your application will assess this on a case by case basis.
