Registering for your Cambridge Exam with Babel

Babel runs Cambridge B2 First, C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency exams in cooperation with the British Council. These exams take place throughout the academic year and can be either taken on paper or via computer.

Many exams are hosted on Babel’s premises on the Nieuwegracht. Some are hosted at other locations in and around Utrecht. After you have registered for your exam, at least three weeks before it is scheduled to take place, you will receive information about the venue and exact timings of your exam. Please note that the Speaking exam is usually set the day before or two days before the Reading, Writing and Listening exams.
