The British Council in Cyprus held its annual exams loyalty schemes event on 29 November, awarding also schools and institutes with the highest candidates registered. The event was held at the Residence of the British High Commissioner in a festive atmosphere.


The British Council’s two exams loyalty schemes; the Addvantage Member Scheme for Cambridge Assessment English and IELTS examinations and the Partner Schools Global Network (PSGN) for IGCSEs, GCSEs and A’levels, have recently been upgraded to provide even more benefits to the schools and institutes that the British Council works with. Discounts on exams, free and reduced priced online modules for teachers, online practice for students and discounts on UK higher education counselling, are only some of the benefits aiming to cater not only the school’s or institute’s needs, but also the needs of the teachers and students.
