Cancelling your IELTS test

If you cancel your IELTS test up to five weeks before the test date, you will receive a refund minus an administration fee of BDT 3900 for regular IELTS, BDT 5000 for UKVI IELTS and BDT 3800 for Life Skills.

Please note that refunds can take four to six weeks to process.

To cancel your test date, please download and complete our IELTS Transfer Refund Form and send it via post to your test centre or email bd.inquiries@britishcouncil.org

If an original medical certificate confirming illness on the date of the test is provided within five working days of the test date, together with the Request for Refund or Test Date Transfer Form, the fee is refundable, minus the administration fee.

Only original medical certificates in local language or English are accepted. If we have not received both required documents at our office by the fifth working day after the test, you will be marked as absent and forfeit all claims.

Please note that we do not accept sick notes issued by family members.

Requesting a test day transfer

If you need to change the date of your test from the date you originally booked, you can request a test day transfer up to five weeks before the test date, free of charge.

Please note that the new test date must be within three months of the original date. In cases of illness, transfer is possible within five weeks of the test if an original medical certificate is provided within five working days of the test date, together with the IELTS Transfer Refund Form.
