  2. To my reckoning, the simple answer is NO, they may not require it IF your country's lingua franca is English.
    But having said that, i'll add that considering the huge number of students who will apply, it is only sensible to do ALL that the Selection Committee requires as they may favor an applicant with an English language proficiency test result whose lingua franca is also English over you who dont have such a language proficiency result.
