English language requirements

my partner and i are in the infancy of applying for a skilled independent visa 457

My partner is a French passport holder but has been educated in the UK, he has a degree from a UK institution, will he still have to do the IELTS test? Will this exempt him?

If you have a look at english language requirements under a skilled visa eligibility - choose the 175 in sticky #6 for example, you'll see that having studied at an english language course will give you 15 points and to get more you need to do the IELTS.

The 457 Visa is an employer sponsored one btw and so not too independent.
