**Abstract:**
We show that

derandomizing polynomial identity testing over an arbitrary finite

field implies that NEXP does not have polynomial size boolean

circuits. In other words, for any finite field F(q) of size q,

$PIT_q\in NSUBEXP\Rightarrow NEXP\not\subseteq P/poly$, where

$PIT_q$ is the polynomial identity testing problem over F(q), and

NSUBEXP is the nondeterministic subexpoential time class of

languages. Our result is in contract to Kabanets and Impagliazzo's

existing theorem that derandomizing the polynomial identity testing

in the integer ring Z implies that NEXP does have polynomial

size boolean circuits or permanent over Z does not have polynomial

size arithmetic circuits.
