Steps To Apply for Canada SDS Study Visa | Four New English Tests

IRCC approved four new English tests for the Canada SDS (Student Direct Stream) study visa on August 10, 2023 but they did not update the GCKey. They seem to be experiencing a system error, and newly approved language tests do not appear as an option for applicants to select in the GCKey.

However, the Canadian Immigration Development is working on resolving the error. An information on how to apply using the new English tests has been updated by IRCC to further assist applicants. IRCC also shared a temporary measure for Study visa applicants.

Candidates can use the below instructions to submit their English tests to have their applications considered for Student Direct Stream (SDS).

  • When asked if you’ve taken a language test in the past 2 years, select ‘Yes – IELTS’ even if you have CAEL, PTE, CELPIP, or TOEFL results.
  • When asked if your test results were 6.0 or higher, select ‘Yes.’ Even if you have less than 6 in one or two modules of IELTS Academic.
  • When you upload your supporting documents, upload your valid test results in the field labelled Proof of IELTS Results, which can be CAEL, PTE, CELPIP, or TOEFL results.

Always remember that for the SDS, IRCC only accepts in-person language examinations. Tests taken online are not accepted.
