What is Addvantage?
Addvantage is the British Council’s examinations member scheme for schools, language centres, universities and institutions who register candidates with us each year. It’s our way of saying thank you and to welcome our new customers.
How does Addvantage work?
Your membership level will depend on the total number of registrations made with us in the previous academic year. New schools and institutions that join Addvantage will be offered a membership level according to the number of registrations they first make. Our examinations team will contact you at the beginning of the academic year with your membership level and to organise your benefits.
We offer three membership levels:
|No. of Registrations||Membership Level|
|100 and above||Addvantage Premium Plus|
As you move up the levels you will enjoy greater benefits as a thank you for registering your candidates through the British Council.
Join us now to start enjoying your membership benefits, including the use of the Addvantage member logo and promotional materials.
As part of your Addvantage Membership we offer you access to our LearnEnglish Exams website, which offers support and practice for candidates preparing for Cambridge English Qualifications B2 First, B2 First for Schools or C1 Advanced exams. The website is the ideal place for extra practice and last-minute revision.
