How do I register?

It’s easy to register for your university exams. 

  1. First, get in touch with your education institution and register your exam directly with them. 
  2. Once your exam place has been confirmed you should contact us.
  3. You need to do this at least one month before your exam. 

How much will it cost?

Our fees do not include costs charged by the exam board. Please get in touch with the board to discuss their costs.

Some institutions pay for all administrative charges including courier costs and so are invoiced for the total cost at the end of the session.

However, some institutions arrange for candidates to pay costs locally. In this case, candidates are required to pay a non-refundable fee no later than a week before the exams. 

This should be paid at any Standard Chartered bank in Ghana using account number 99104, plus the last six digits of any national ID number.

A copy of the payment slip should be sent to us via email at our office together with a completed payment form which can be downloaded below.

For our current local examination fees please contact us

Special arrangements

If you have any special arrangements, please get in touch with us at least eight weeks before submitting your application. You should include any supporting documents, such as a medical certificate, with your exam registration paperwork. 


The British Council and the exam boards take all reasonable steps to provide continuity of service. British Council cannot be held responsible for any interruptions caused by circumstances beyond our control. If examinations or their results are disrupted, cancelled or delayed, every effort will be made to resume normal services as soon as possible. The British Council’s liability will be limited to the refund of the registration or re-testing fee at a later date.

The British Council will not be responsible for the recognition of your programme/university course. It is solely the responsibility of the student to confirm if the programme/university course is approved by Ministry of Higher Education in Ghana.
