You can only take Cambridge English exams through an authorised test centre so you will need to find a centre in a nearby country. Use our online search to find a centre near you.
Exam centres do not necessarily offer all Cambridge English exams or every available exam date. If your local centre is not offering the exam/date that you would like, you will need to travel to take your exam at a different centre. There are 2,700 centres offering Cambridge English exams worldwide.
