Due to the ongoing crisis in Sudan, we have suspended all operations including Examinations until further notice. This includes registration for any exams and the suspension of the following exams scheduled in May and June: the May/June IGCSEs, A 'Levels and Checkpoint exams, IELTS, CIPS and the Cambridge English exams. The safety and security of our colleagues and customers is our highest priority. We hope to restart our work when it is safe to do so. 
Please note communication on exams will be shared by British Council through its official channels. 
For any queries, write to: info@sd.britishcouncil.org

We offer a range of convenient test dates at our official IELTS test centres in Khartoum. You can choose to take your IELTS test on paper or on a computer. Whichever you prefer, you will need to come the test centre to sit your test. Find out more.

Your Listening, Reading, and Writing sections of the test will be completed on the same day with no break in between. We run tests in the morning. All sessions allow social distancing. Morning sessions are usually between 9.00 and 12.00.  

If you take IELTS on paper, your Speaking test will take place on a different day to the other sections of the test, in a 7-day window before or after the main test day.
