Group registrations: Language schools and other institutions

  • Institutions register their candidates by uploading an Excel spreadsheet on the Online Registrations portal. To do that they need to have an account with us. If you do not have an account on our registration portal, please send us an email to and we will create it for you. Once you log in to the portal, you will be able to download the Excel sheet from the portal. You will then need to fill it in, save it and then upload it to the portal. Download the instructions below. 
  • It is the duty of the school or institution to notify the candidates or their parent or guardian about the Rules and Regulations (available for download below).
  • For each candidate taking FCE, CAE or CPE we need to receive the appropriate Test day photography consent form (available for download below) signed either by the candidate or their parent/guardian if they are under age.

In the latter case, we need to receive the proof of payments made by candidates. Institutions need to send to the British Council signed Test day photography consent forms and Child Safe Collection Consent forms for their candidates.

Special arrangements

You may have special needs which make it difficult for you to demonstrate your ability in English. Cambridge English provides a range of arrangements for candidates with special requirements, such as specific learning, hearing or visual difficulties. British Council can make special arrangements for you so you can take the exam on an equal footing with other candidates.

The request for special arrangements needs to be supported by original medical documentation (”Povijest bolesti”), which meets the following criteria:

  • Bears the name, relevant qualification(s) and signature of a recognised practitioner
  • Makes it clear how the disability justifies Special arrangements
  • In the case of specific learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia), evidence must include details of the degree of disability, must include an assurance that the evidence of specific difficulties was obtained through the results of appropriate and recognised tests, and a report must be provided by a fully qualified psychologist.

The Special Arrangements Request form will be emailed to candidates by the British Council. For Cambridge English exams the request has to be made until the registration deadline.

More information on special circumstances and arrangements can be found in the special circumstances section of the Cambridge English website and on our special arrangements page.
