Will my scheduled tests still hold as planned?

Following the directives of the Sudanese government and to protect the health of our test-takers, all tests have been cancelled for the time being. 

For information on when we will resume testing, please keep up-to-date by checking this website and our Social Media.

 

I am yet to be contacted; does it mean my test will still hold as previously scheduled?

If you’re yet to be contacted, kindly send an email to us at info@sd.britishcouncil.org.

Must test-takers apply for a refund or can one leave the application until the British Council resume activities?

Due to the current uncertainty caused by the novel COVID-19 outbreak, we have provided the option for either a transfer or refund. Kindly send an email to us at info@sd.britishcouncil.org with your preferred option. 

I just received an email notice for the cancellation of my test tomorrow. What options are available for the transfer and when is the earliest date I can pick?

Given the current restrictions imposed by government as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19, it is very difficult at this point to provide you with information on the next available test dates. Please complete the transfer form attached and we will schedule you as soon as we can and advise accordingly.

In the meantime, access this suite of free webinars to assist you with your preparation

Does the 25 per cent fee apply to a refund requested because of the global pandemic?

Will there be a delay in release of results online?

When and how will I receive my results?

Because our offices are temporarily closed due to the directives from the Sudanese government, effective 15 March 2020. We are currently to process an Enquiry of Result now, but once we are open you can apply for it.  

Would the current closure affect the timeline for 'Enquiry of Result' (remark) application?

Please note that the timeline for processing Enquiry of Result remains unchanged. If you have requested for a re-marking no later than six weeks after the test date, but before the Covid-19 and office closure.
