All TOEFL, GRE and IELTS tests in the Chinese mainland in February will be canceled amid the ongoing novel coranavirus pneumonia outbreak, test administrators said on Monday.

After consultation with the National Education Examinations Authority under the Ministry of Education, ETS, administrator of TOEFL and GRE, and the British Council, administrator of IELTS, will return full testing fees to test takers’ accounts.

"We will pay close attention to the latest updates of the epidemic situation and adjust our registration and testing arrangements for tests after February," they added.

ETS and British Council announced on Saturday that it would cancel all TOEFL, GRE and IELTS tests in Hubei province in February.
