Big News at InitialView, Part 1

Today we are pleased to announce the addition of proctored writing samples to complement our proprietary interview platform. We’ve been testing writing samples in the recent months and have been receiving great feedback, and now we are rolling them out as an option for all interviews.

If any of our supporting organizations would like to have their applicants sit for a proctored writing sample, all they have to do is indicate such in their recommendation to applicants. Each applicant is monitored for the complete duration of the test, and the admission officers (and any ESL colleagues) receive a copy of the essay question(s) and the students’ handwritten response.

The cost for students of the writing sample portion is RMB600 (about USD95), and we will send the writing sample to as many schools as requested by the student (just like our interviews).  As always, there is no charge for the school.

Proctored writing samples are a key element in our commitment to meeting the various needs of our supporting organizations. Should you have any questions about this new service, please don’t hesitate to email us at or call us at the phone numbers below.
