Before 2 April 2007 it was not possible to grant limited leave to remain on the basis of long residence. On 2 April 2007, paragraph 276A1 and paragraph 276A2 were added to the Immigration Rules to allow long residence applicants to be granted an extension of limited leave to remain, if they met all the requirements for indefinite leave on the basis of long residence except for the knowledge of language and life in the UK requirement.

If you have not passed Life in the UK Test to apply for ILR on the basis of 10 years long residence and you meet all other requirements to be eligible for ILR, you can then apply for extension of your stay on the basis of 10 years long residence. The extension of stay will be granted for two years period. You can apply for ILR under 10 years long residence any time during the validity of two years leave when you meet all the requirements of paragraph 276B of the Immigration Rules.
