Updated: 9 November

The British Council is open for Cambridge exams, in line with up-to-date government guidelines and restrictions. 

Your health and safety is our top priority. We therefore adhere to the RIVM guidelines, which for example specifies people must always stay 1.5 metres apart. This affects the number of candidates who can take an exam at one time depending on the size of the venue.

Should we have to reschedule an exam, due to following the RIVM guidelines, we will do this free of charge. We are very flexible as we have more exam dates - outside the advertised ones – available; please contact your exam centre for more details.

In accordance with the new stricter guidelines issued by the government on 3 Nov 2020, we would like to inform you that our venue partner Aristo will be closed from the 5 November – 18 November 2020.  As a result, all examinations at venue Aristo have been cancelled during this period. We appreciate that this is very short notice, however the decision has been taken in order to guarantee the health, safety and well-being of all our customers, colleagues and the communities in which we operate.  

We are continuously monitoring the guidelines. If the situation changes, we will adapt our approach and inform any candidates who are affected. Please note our offices are closed, but you can still contact us at exams@britishcouncil.nl or via phone: T +31 (0)20 550 6060 (Monday to Friday, 10:00 – 12:00 and 14:00 – 16:00)

Response time might be longer than usual due to the circumstances. We are grateful for your patience and understanding and will be in touch as soon as possible. 

Best wishes,

The British Council
