Please note that the British Council USA does not offer examination services

Unlike other British Council offices around the world, the British Council USA regrets that we do not offer examination services. 

However, we can inform you of several alternatives:

Consortium for College Testing

We recommend you consult the Consortium for College Testing for participants in the US, where you will find contact details, fees and test center information.

Contact State Universities

You should also contact the public universities in the state in which you reside to find out if they have examination facilities on their campus. Contact information for US universities can be found using an internet search engine. 

For examination services in the Washington, DC area for the University of London or other British universities, please contact the University of Maryland, College Park at Tel: (301) 314-7688 or email cc-testingoffice@umd.edu.
