Please follow these steps in order to register for an IGCSE/International GCSE, A or AS level exam. 

Step 1: Complete your online registration

Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)

The GCE/IGCSE O and A level exam registrations are now close for the October/November 2017 session.

Step 2: Pay for your exams

You can pay via a bank draft payable to the British Council, or via a bank deposit through designated Standard Chartered Bank (SCB). Keep your stamped bank deposit slip as proof of payment since you will need this to complete your exam registration.

Now you can also pay for your exams through online payment via credit card.

Note: Please note that for candidates paying online you must print out and fill the Credit Card Authorisation form and send it to us at info@britishcouncil.org.pk  within 5 days of making the online payment, along with requirements mentioned in order for us to proceed with your registration. Please ensure that you enter credit card details at the earliest as your transaction will be timed out after 15 minutes and you would have to repeat the entire process.

For candidates paying offline your application will not be processed until you have paid and submitted your registration summary (with the British Council’s bank deposit slip/pay order) for your exams. 

Penalty fee

Each examination board has a set registration period for each exam session. You may still be able to register for exams after this date, but you will have to pay a penalty fee. You can find more information about late registration penalty fees for your exam registration on the website.

The final step is to submit your application to the British Council with the bank deposit slip (Blue and Pink copy). Depending on your mode of payment, you can submit your application as follows:

a) For Standard Chartered Bank deposit: you can submit your application in your local branch drop box.

b) For bank draft: you need to send it by courier to your respective British Council offices.

c) For Online: We have already received your application online, kindly ensure you send your Authorisation form to info@britishcouncil.org.pk within 5 days of making the online payment.
