INCREASE IN ACT TESTING FEES OVERSEAS


Due to repeated security breaches in the testing at overseas centers in Asia and Oceania, the Iowa-based, not-for-profit ACT, Inc. is increasing its overseas testing fees by $10 to cover for enhanced security to avoid cheating. The price increase was described in a letter sent last month to a college counselor in China and reviewed by Reuters. "The fee increases will cover costs for new test security measures," it stated. ACT Inc spokesman Ed Colby confirmed the measure. Beginning next April, the high-stakes exam will cost up to $109.50 for overseas test-takers - $51 more than those in the United States. After the October sitting of the exam, ACT canceled scores for an unspecified number of students in Asia and Oceania on the writing section of the test because of a leak. In June, the exam was canceled for all test-takers in South Korea and Hong Kong due to another breach.
