Important notice

It has come to our attention that there are websites pretending to be British Council IELTS registration sites. They are not associated with us and we are not responsible for the content on those sites.

Before you enter any personal details, please make sure that you are using our secure online registration system (https://ielts.britishcouncil.org/ for IELTS registration, https://ieltsukvisas.britishcouncil.org/ for IELTS for UK Visa and Immigration) and check that “British Council” is spelt correctly.

The British Council has been apprised by certain members of the public that they have been offered, through varied modes of communication, IELTS TRFs (test report forms), job interviews, certificate(s), UK visas, and IELTS results without taking the test in exchange of monetary consideration on letterhead(s) of the British Council. We would like to bring to the notice of the general public that the British Council does not issue any such kind of communication. Therefore, the general public is requested to exercise caution in dealing with unscrupulous elements who are issuing such communication.

For any clarification that you might require regarding such communication about IELTS, please contact the British Council by sending an email to security.ielts@britishcouncil.org
