  • Use the British Council Virtual Account Deposit Slips available in all Standard Chartered bank branches to make your payment  

Follow the instructions below to complete the virtual account deposit slip:

  1. Ensure that your full candidate name is clearly indicated in the student name section. 
  2. Candidates are required to bring their Original Kenyan ID  or  original and valid passport. Kindly note that if you do not hold a Kenyan ID you must bring your country's original and valid passport with you on your exam day (We do not accept Alien ID cards).Your name on the bank slip must match this document
  3. Please note that all exams have a reference code already printed after the exam name e.g. for IELTS Workshop , the reference code printed already on the slip is 99182 (subject reference code)
  4. In the ‘select the appropriate exam and indicate ID number of candidate in boxes’ field first tick the box of the exam that you are taking
  5. After the subject reference code, enter the code for month of exam (refer to the table below) followed by the full number of the document that you registered with, that is, your ID / Passport number as indicated above (kindly complete filling all the boxes with your document number even if the number of boxes in the field are not enough)
  6. For example if you’re registering for May IELTS Preparation Workshop, with a passport number of A1234567 you will add 021234567 in the blank boxes at the subject reference code for your exam choice. For example for IELTS Preparation Workshop , the subject reference code is 99182 and already printed on the bank slip so you will write i.e. 99182021234567 – ie the subject reference code is already there for IELTS Workshop 99182, then you write in the month of your workshop  (for May it is 02) and then you write in the passport / ID number ie 99177021234567 (do not add the letter from your passport)
