The safety and wellbeing of British Council IELTS test takers and staff is our priority. For the purpose of combating Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia (NCP), we have taken the decision in consultation with the NEEA to cancel all March IELTS tests, at test centers throughout Mainland China. We will return test fees in full to personal registration accounts of affected test takers. The British Council continues to monitor developments closely and will provide updates on future test dates in due course.  

We apologise for the disruption this announcement causes you, and we hope to recommence testing as soon as allowed by the authorities.
