Testing Within China – the following Chinese regulations apply to testing in China:
- Chinese citizens may take the ACT ONLY as an end-of-course examination as part of the Global Assessment Certificate (GAC). If you are a Chinese citizen and a GAC candidate, you must register through your GAC center. If you are not a GAC candidate, you may not take the ACT in China.
- Citizens of countries other than China may register to test in China ONLY IF they are enrolled at the institution that serves as the test center. If you are enrolled at a school in China that also serves as a test center, you must get the test center code from your school.
Testing Outside China:
If you are not a GAC candidate and are not enrolled at a school that serves as an ACT test center, consider whether you could test in a different location by traveling to Hong Kong, Macau, or Singapore, or to a nearby country (for example, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal).

More about China
- LOCALTIMEZONE: Latest statistics of population in the country of China, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.
China is the fourth largest country in the world in terms of area. A quarter of the territory is below 500 m, a quarter above 3,000 m. The land area slopes down in four clearly separated levels from the high west to the plains and the coastal region in the east. Check 3rjewelry to see 7 Historical Attractions in Beijing.
The high plateaus, mountain ranges and high basins without drainage in the west form the first land level. This includes the Qinghai – Tibet Plateau, the largest contiguous plateau on earth with an average height of 4,000 m above sea level. In the north, between the mountains Kunlun Shan , Altun Shan and Nan Shan, the desert-like Qaidam basin is sunk with heights (2,700 m); east of it is the Qinghai Hu , the largest lake in China, an outflow-free salt lake. In the southwest and south, the highlands are bounded by the Transhimalayas and the Himalayas ; both are through the valley of the Tsangpo, the upper reaches of the Brahmaputra , separated from each other. Mount Everest rises in the Himalayas, on the border with Nepal, at 8,850 m above sea level, the highest mountain on earth. To the southeast, the highlands sloping down with the Hengduan Shan to the Yunnan Guizhou Plateau.
The second land level, 1,000–2,000 m above sea level, includes the Yunnan Guizhou Plateau (with tower and conical karst landscapes) and the Sichuan Basin (also known as the Red Basin) on the Yangtze River to the north of it , one of the most densely populated regions China, as well as in the north the loess plains (about 400,000 km 2) especially in the arc of the Yellow River (Hwangho) and the steppes and deserts (Gobi) of Inner Mongolia.
In the north-east the Great Chingan also belongs to this level, in the north-west in Sinkiang the Djungary and the Tarim basin with the Takla-Makan desert; both are separated from each other by the Tian Shan. In its eastern foothills, the Turfansenke extends , at 154 m below sea level, one of the deepest regions on earth. North and South China are separated by the Qinling Mountains , the easternmost branch of the Kunlun Shan.
The third land level forms the most densely populated and economically most intensively used part of China. It stretches to the Pacific coast and extends from the northeast Chinese plain (Manchuria) over the “Great Plain” through which the lower reaches of the Hwangho flows and the lowlands on the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River to the south-east Chinese mountains, a strongly chambered low mountain range between mostly 500 and 1,000 m altitude (Nan Ling and Wuyi Shan up to around 2,000 m).
The coasts of southern China and the peninsulas Liaodong and Shandong in the north on the Yellow Sea are strongly divided by numerous bays, with cliffs and offshore island corridors. The coast north of the Yangtze, on the other hand, is mostly flat and has few ports. The fourth level is formed by the islands, especially Taiwan , in the Pacific marginal seas.
From a geological point of view, the mountain ranges around the highlands of Tibet are young folds and fractures. In the other mountainous countries, it is a case of worn-out large hull clods of older folds and more recent adjustment or bending. The mountain movements are not yet complete, as violent earthquakes , especially at the edges of the floe in the provinces of Gansu , Shandong , Hebei (1976 an earthquake caused over 250,000 deaths) and Sichuan (approx. 80,000 deaths in May 2008), prove. Young volcanic phenomena are almost completely absent, except on the island of Hainan and all the way to the northeast. On the structure of the mountains are v. a. Sedimentary and metamorphic rocks of the ancient world involved, interspersed with large granite stocks in southern China.
The Chinese geographers also distinguish so-called complex natural regions. Eastern China is considered to be the predominantly monsoonal agricultural core area (almost 90% of the total arable land), which comprises around 45% of the land area east of a line Great Chingan – Ordos Plateau – western edge of the »Red Basin« –Yunnan Plateau. A distinction is made into four large physical regions running from east to west, the warmth of which increases towards the south. To the west of the dividing line between the Great Chingan and the Yunnan Plateau, the arid to semi-arid climate does not allow extensive agricultural use; However, oasis cultivation and grazing are possible. The area from the Inner Mongolian steppe over the Ordos Plateau , the Gobi and the Turfansenke up to the Tarim basin are occupied by extensive sandy, gravel and stone deserts.
The highlands of Tibet with its highly continental, cold, arid to semi-arid climate form an independent unit.
Soil formation only started after the last icing. In the transition area between the warm northern China and the inner Mongolian steppe, an up to 100 m thick loess plateau extends in the provinces of Shanxi , Shaanxi and Gansu. This plateau is subject to constant soil erosion , so that canyon-like valleys have formed.
