Covid-19 Updates and Health Advisory

Date: February 2020

On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared the Covid-19 outbreak as a pandemic.

The health, safety and welfare of all our students, test-takers, staff and partners with which we operate, is our top priority at the British Council. 

In response to official recommendations, we have suspended  all examinations and events until further notice. The British Council Exam Centre at the British Council Office 8, will be closed from Monday, 16 March 2020. 

All exams activity will be suspended until 28 March 2020. Candidates affected by these changes may request to transfer to another test date without any fees, or file for a full refund. For test cancellation and transfer, you may download the request form from this link. We will send out information and contact examinees on other exam dates as soon as possible.

As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we are monitoring the situation very closely and will continue to take relevant measures in line with the advice of local authorities in the days ahead. As soon as the situation changes, we will inform you via our digital channels. If you have further inquiries, please contact us at

Stay healthy.


Kind regards, 
British Council Indonesia Foundation
