British Council

We organise a wide range of exams on behalf of UK professional bodies and universities.

We are responsible for ensuring that your exam is administered correctly: 

  • we receive the exam papers and store them securely
  • we provide an exam room with an invigilator
  • we make sure that all regulations set by the examination boards of the educational institutions or professional bodies are followed and all requirements are met
  • after the exam, we send the papers back by using secured courier services

Please note that we cannot accommodate exams involving Listening or Speaking sections.

All exams must be organised within our opening hours (08.00 – 17.00).

It is your responsibility to contact the examination board for their confirmation and to ensure that the regulations and exam papers arrive at the British Council in advance of the exam date.

Please contact us (as an individual candidate or an examination board) at least one month in advance so we can verify if we will be able to accommodate your exam on the required date. We will send you further information regarding the fees and the procedure to follow.
