Due to suspected cheating, last summer the ACT exam was cancelled for all test-takers in South Korea & Hong Kong in what became the first cancellation of the exam to ever affect an entire country, a decision that prevented some 5,500 students from taking the exam at 56 different test centers.
To find out how important the ACT is for South Korean students, & how those who were scheduled to take the test were affected by its cancellation, Korea FM reporter Chance Dorland spoke with Peter Chi, the managing director of test prep company IvyConnection.
Find more details about the 2016 cancelation via the New York Times.
