CHINA: US exam botch frustrates Chinese students

Following the cancellation last month of thousands of Graduate Record Examination scores in China due to administrative problems, a growing number of Chinese students are speaking out about what they say is an insufficient and ineffective response by the US company that runs the exam, writes Mary Hennock for The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Educational Testing Service, in Princeton, New Jersey, cancelled the scores of about 24,000 people who had taken the GRE on 23 October. The company said it had mistakenly reused a 2005 test and feared the results would be compromised.
