How to find a test center?

First of all, you will have to check what are the exam centers available next to you. With over 2,800 centers in 130 countries around the world, it should be easy! You can find the locations and contact details of every exam center on the official Cambridge  English website

How to get in touch with your local exam center?

After having chosen your preferred location, you will need to choose between taking the Paper-based or Computer-based version of the exam. Depending on this choice, the dates and times may change. All you have to do next is contact the exam center (via telephone or email) and tell them which exam and what version of it you would like to take. The exam center will indicate the dates and times this exam is available to take.

When taking the exam?

Because of the current sanitary condition, it must be highlighted that there is a risk that these dates may be changed in the future. It is mandatory to check the dates and times with your local exam center before making any booking. 

How much will it cost?

The fees of this exam are set by the exam centers, so it may be difficult to indicate a precise price. However, you can expect to pay around 130€. This is the price in application in a majority of exam centers.
