English language tests for foreign students 'unfair', says Cambridge

concern over government plans to impose strict English language tests

Cambridge ESOL, the world's leading language assessor, said the
British home ministry should ensure that "only tried and tested
systems with high levels of security and quality control are
recognised for this purpose."
