Over two million people took exams with the British Council last year. We offer a wide range of exams, from English tests to school and business qualifications, in more than 90 countries worldwide. We connect people worldwide with learning opportunities and creative ideas from the academic and business world.

The British Council is committed to providing a transparent, high quality and accessible service to everyone we deal with, and we hope to make your experience with us an excellent one.  We want to hear your comments and suggestions about the service you experienced when you contacted us, or when using any of our products or services. Please find out complaints policy here.

We have recently been made aware of scams running on Facebook. They claim that candidates can simply buy results online without having to take the test. Only the British Council can administer the IELTS exam in South Africa and issue results after a test, consisting of four components, is written. All instances should be reported to Facebook as fraud.
