ACT Registration

Registering for the ACT (American College Test) 

Registration is completed on-line at and enter our test centre code (870470), as we are not listed since we are located in China.

Next, students will need to register YCIS as their high school. This code is 694462 (same used for SAT). Here are some tips from the ACT for entering our unlisted Test Centre.

  1. Once the student is signed up and has an account, the system will walk them through each one of the sections that must be filled out.
  1. Always use your mouse to click on the Submit or Continue button presented during the registration process. Since hitting the enter button on the keyboard may not work, and in fact, it may totally put you out of the system.
  1. Once the student reaches the Test Center Selection page, they will enter the 6-digit Test Center code, (870470) obtained from the Test Coordinator, and click on the “submit” button.
    (Again, do not hit enter on your keyboard, you must click on the button).
  1. The next screen will show the Test Center selection, and the student must confirm it before moving to the next screen.
    (See YCIS below).

Remember, the code is 870470 for YCIS Shanghai, CP.

After, you will be brought to this screen where you see available seats. Select the seats available option.

Mr. Gartz is always available to help anyone who seeks assistance in registering. To finalise the process, students will need a credit card payment by credit card.

Test dates and registration deadlines for the remainder of this school year are:

International Test Dates

All students testing outside the United States, United States territories, Puerto Rico, or Canada must register on the web. You must establish a free ACT web account in order to register. If you have missed the registration deadline for a test date, you may be able to request standby testing.
