Special Arrangements

The British Council aims to ensure that every candidate is treated fairly and objectively and that they are given optimum conditions to take their exams. We can make arrangements to accommodate requirements for candidates with special needs. The special arrangements available depend on the examination board. You will normally need to provide a medical certificate issued within the last two years. 

If you are thinking of taking an exam and need special arrangements, please contact us to discuss your special needs as soon as possible.
