From Reuters - September 7, 2017

(Reuters) - ACT Inc, the maker of the United States most popular college entrance exam, said on Thursday it has canceled the ACT exam scheduled for Saturday at some of its international test centers due to a breach of the test materials.

ACT, which has been the target of widespread cheating at overseas centers, has notified affected students, who will receive instructions on how to reschedule their test, a spokesman said.

ACT said it could not give specifics as to how the test materials were leaked because the incident was still under investigation.

The breach and cancellations were confined to specific international test centers, company spokesman Ed Colby added in an email.

Separately, ACT said it was busy working to reschedule some tests scheduled for Saturday in U.S. states such as Texas, Louisiana, and Florida, that are affected by hurricanes Harvey and now Irma.
