As of February 1, 2024, applicants will be required to pay N139,000 for both the Computer Academic and General Training Modules.
The British Council attributed this adjustment to the rising costs associated with conducting the examinations.
The IELTS is widely recognized globally as a measure of language proficiency for non-native English speakers.
In an official notice posted on their website, the council stated, “We would like to inform you that there has been a review of our IELTS fees. The new price list of the IELTS range of tests offered by the British Council will be effective for registrations on or after 1 February 2024.”
The notice further explained that the price change is a response to the increased costs of delivering the exams.
“ This adjustment is expected to support the continuation of a diverse range of services and comprehensive support for individuals striving to achieve their language proficiency goals,” it added.
This latest increase of IELTS examination fee comes just five months after the previous adjustment in September 2023 when the fee rose from a range of N80,000 to N90,000 to the current N107,500.
The British Council expressed gratitude to applicants and emphasised their commitment to providing valuable services.
