It would be advisable to know which version of English the CPE uses. That said, marking "path" as incorrect is wrong in my opinion.

Hello ALL! =)
I'm doing CPE samples, and today I had an annoying problem.
The question was:
".. for anyone willing to forsake the beaten _____, and .."
I chose (A), but answer was (C) and this made me understand the question:
off the beaten track
(US also off the beaten path)
in a place where few people go, far from any main roads and towns
-- From Cambridge online
in US is common to say PATH but in UK TRACK in this collocation?
Should I go for BE collocations and Phrasal Verbs? There is so much difference?
I will really appreciate your comments!!!
It is "beaten path" in AmE.
