We have resumed IELTS testing with the limited number of test-takers per session as per quarantine requirements. In the meantime, we have increased the number of sessions, so all our test-takers will be able to sit the exam. We would like to ensure you that all test takers with transferred test dates of the exam will have a chance to sit the exam on a new date. You will receive in your email all the necessary instructions as to the date of the exam, conditions, and requirements for the test. Should you have any questions, please use this email address as the most effective way to contact us info@britishcouncil.org.ua   

This process will be in full compliance with the requirements of the Cabinet of Ministers on Covid-19 anti-epidemic measures.
