Exam dates, fees and locations

We are committed to making your experience of taking a Cambridge Assessment English exam with us as simple as possible.

We are happy to accept registrations from candidates throughout Austria. Exams sessions are usually held in Vienna.

If more than 40 candidates from the same area outside Vienna register for a specific exam, British Council will try to organise a test venue within this area. However, we reserve the right for a final decision on the examination venues. 

Please note: Up to a certain date, it is possible to register late for spare seats even after the registration deadline has expired. For this, an additional late entry fee incurs. For further information please contact us.

Results for paper based exams are available online between four and six weeks after you take the exam. Note that certificates are issued at a later time (see tables below).
