No More American College Test Venues in China

China's Education Ministry has denied reports that the American College Test will be widely available in China from next year.

The Ministry issued a statement on Tuesday saying the National Education Examinations Authority never signed an agreement or even discussed the exam with any organization.

Earlier reports claimed that Chinese students who plan to study in the United States will soon be able to take the exam without hassle in their homeland.

Chinese high school students currently have to travel to the United States, Hong Kong, or a select few schools in China to take the test, according to Beijing Evening News.

The American College Test is the most widely accepted college entrance exam in the US, recognized by more than 3,300 American universities.

More than 2,000 Chinese students have registered for American College Test training courses and sat the test since May 2005.
