ACT Reaches Agreement with TÜV SÜD to Provide Access to ACT Test, Prep Materials to Bangladesh Students

IOWA CITY, Iowa—ACT has signed an agreement with TÜV SÜD Bangladesh, one of the world’s leading training, testing, inspection and certification companies, to provide students in Bangladesh with greater access to the ACT® test and ACT test prep materials.

Under the agreement, TÜV SÜD Bangladesh will administer the ACT test to students across Bangladesh, as well as provide students with access to ACT-produced programs and materials that will help them better prepare for the exam. The move will expand the number of ACT test centers available to Bangladesh students.

“We are very excited to be joining forces with TÜV SÜD to provide Bangladesh students with greater access to the ACT test and to US universities,” said ACT Chief Commercial Officer, Suzana Delanghe. “American universities rely on ACT scores to help them see which applicants are best prepared to succeed on their campuses, so doing well on the ACT test can be extremely helpful to international students who wish to study in the US.”

“The ACT test sets international students up for success during their stint on campuses across the United States of America,” said Ezhilan N., Country Head, TÜV SÜD Bangladesh. “Bangladesh has great potential in terms of the number of students accepted by American universities. The country ranks 11th globally for graduate students and 26th for undergraduate students studying in the United States. We are thrilled to partner with ACT to help them expand their test centers and be a catalyst in helping students from Bangladesh realise their American dream.”

TÜV SÜD is expected to begin administering the ACT exam in Bangladesh later this year.
