IELTS Test fee

The fee for an IELTS Academic or General training test for both paper-based and computer-delivered IELTS is NPR.19,500.

Notice about IELTS Test fee

Test fee for IELTS will be NPR 19,500 effective for all test dates after 1 January 2019. There are no extra charges payable to British Council for registration for IELTS. In the case that you are registering through an agent (Consultancy), you may be charged a service fee. British Council Nepal does not take any responsibility for this transaction as it is solely between the candidate and the agent. Please note that registration for IELTS is strictly on a first come first serve basis depending on availability of seats for a particular exam date. The IELTS registration process is an automated process that cannot be manipulated. No candidate is given special preference at the time of registration and registering through any particular consultancy does not guarantee a seat in any exam date. We inform all candidates not to make any payment to a consultancy service or to register through such agents who claim that they can guarantee you a seat for a given test date. Agents are also warned not to provide false guarantees to candidates about the availability of seats.

British Council Nepal takes such false claims very seriously and reserves the right to take action against such agents.
