Abu-Dhabi, UAE

ConnecME Education, the leading provider of educational services in
the Middle East and North Africa is pleased to announce a signing of a long-term contract renewal with
its long-standing partner ACT.

ACT, the makers of the ACT Test, which is the US’s most popular college admittance exam has had a
long-standing relationship with ConnecME as their exclusive representative in the Middle East North
Africa region, and the Balkans. ConnecME has been ACT’s exclusive representative, providing students in the region

with access to the ACT test.

With coverage of over 26 countries, through 10 hubs, ConnecME has quickly established itself as the market leader

for educational services in the region.

Under this agreement, ConnecME will administer the test through its vast network of over 50 test
centers, as well as provide students with support in registering and having access to prep materials, such

as ACT Club and ACTAcademy.

ConnecME will also be providing access to other ACT products such as PreACT,  ACT Tessera, and ACT Workkeys.
“We are proud of this contract with ACT, and as their exclusive representatives in the region, we
endeavor to continue our joint mission of providing students with access to world class education, both

home and abroad. The ACT has been well received in the region, with an exponential increase in the number of
ministries and universities that now accept it, we hope to continue these successes” said ConnecME CEO Mr. Mohammad Shadid

“We are thrilled to be renewing our contract with ConnecME education as they strive to provide
students in the Middle East with greater access to the ACT test and to US universities,” said
ACT Chief Commercial Officer Suzana Delanghe. “American colleges and universities rely on ACT scores to help
them identify applicants who are prepared to succeed on their campuses.

As a result, doing well on the ACT test can be extremely helpful to international students who wish to study in the US.”

ACT’s work with ConnecME will leverage the capabilities, skills, and experience of both organizations as
they aim to continue to meet forecasted growth as the acceptance of ACT in the region grows.
