If you are a test-taker, information about taking Aptis will be provided by your employer, university or school. You can not register with us directly, but you can always familiarise yourself with the Aptis test by checking out the following resources available on the pages that follow:

  • watch introductory videos
  • take the demo tests
  • download the Candidate Guide.

The British Council is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in English language testing. We believe that the Aptis test should be accessible to anyone who wants to take it. We also believe that each person should have the opportunity to perform to the best of his or her ability on the Aptis test.

If you have a disability, believe that Aptis is not accessible to you, or believe that the form of the test will not allow you to show your true level of English, please contact your local British Council centre to talk about ways in which the test can be modified for your needs. We can make adjustments such as pen and paper tests, Braille and large font tests, timing, and many others.

Discuss it with us to ensure that we can support you with a test which is both fair to you and maintains the high standards and reliability of Aptis.

If you are an employer, contact the Aptis Team to know more about the test and how it can best fulfil the needs of your organisation or institution.
