You will need to arrive and register 30 minutes before your test time on your assessment day. Your confirmation email will provide you with timings and procedures on the test day. If you arrive late, you will not be allowed to take the test and your test fees will be forfeited. You will receive an email at least three days before the test so you will know at what time your test starts.
Please bring the same valid ID (NRIC, FIN or passport) you used when you booked your test. Invalid or expired IDs will not be accepted. If you cannot provide a valid ID, you will not be able to sit for the test. Please note that physical documents are required and digital IDs are not accepted. If your ID has been lost or stolen, you will need to produce a police report as well as an alternative valid ID with a photo.
Make sure you are prepared and have something to eat and drink beforehand. You will not be allowed to take food into the test room and you will only be allowed to take water in a transparent bottle. Stationery will be provided. Switch off your mobile phone and any other electronic devices. There will be a secure area where you need to leave all your belongings. The British Council is not responsible for loss or damage to your personal belongings at the test venue. Therefore, we strongly recommend leaving valuables like mobile phones and tablet computers at home.
Before the test starts, a briefing will be conducted and the computer equipment will be checked. If you have any questions during the test, raise your hand to ask for help.
At the end of your test, stay in your seat until the invigilator gives you permission to leave the room. If you think that there have been any issues that may have affected your performance, tell the invigilator at once.
