We would like you to know we now have new options that offer you the flexibility to choose a test date with us again and easily move from paper-based test to computer-delivered test.

How to choose a test date for the future?

You can choose a test date up until 31 December 2020 without having to call us for a cancelled test. All you have to do is indicate three preferred dates in the "Request form" (blue button on this page) and we will make a booking for you on priority basis. You will receive an e-mail message confirming your future test date within seven (7) working days..

How does the transfer to computer-delivered test option work?

We are not only making it easier for you to transfer your test date, but also making it convenient for you to move from a paper-based test, which you had registered for, to a computer-delivered test. This not only gives you the freedom to choose from more test dates, but also obtain faster test results. With the free online learning resources that British Council provides, including the free computer-delivered IELTS familiarization test (https://bit.ly/2V6qvqj), you can be confident of acing the IELTS test.

What do I need to do to avail these options?

You need to complete the "Request form" (blue button on this page) and submit. We will email and confirm the changes you have requested within seven (7) working days.

Are there any change fees with either option?

There are no change fees when you register for a test scheduled to happen before 31 December 2020.

Are these options available for tests registered anytime?

These options are available for tests cancelled by the British Council, in adherence to Egyptian government directives. Requests made due to any other personal reasons are subject to the terms and conditions applicable at the time of your registration.

What if I can’t test within this period?

You can opt for an online or bank transfer refund according to the method of payment. We hope you make the most of these new options and look forward to having you test with us.

If you would like to proceed with a refund instead of requesting test date or test format change, please also submit your request on the refund page. Due to the current situation with our office closures, we are experiencing severe delays in processing times. Thank you for your understanding.
