How to register for Cambridge English exams
You can register online and pay the exam fee within three working days of starting the online registration process by direct deposit to the British Council account at Alpha Bank. You can do this at any Alpha Bank branch, via an ATM or via web banking through your own bank.
The Online Registration System will generate a unique reference number that you should use during the transaction with the bank. This number should be used instead of your name in the 'Αιτιολογία' field on the bank deposit slip or web banking transaction form.
You will need the following information for direct deposit and web banking:
