    My last MS test I sat had to show my photo id in this case my drivers licence, would have taught this was standard throughout?

    That's good news :)

    Driving licences can be forged, by taking digital photos they'll be able to stop brain-dumpers and companies that offer the pay "us" to sit your certs (after reports anyway)???

    So...

    ...who's going to compare all those digital photos to the real-life person to make sure they're legit? :rolleyes:

    Good intentions... questionable implementation. Still... perhaps something is better than nothing.

    When I did my degree, we did a module on Artifical neutral networks and part of it was text and picture recognition. Maybe they've developed a program to compare all these photo's.

    Thats good.

    Now what are their plans to get the test answers off the internet? Pretty sure brain dumps are much more popular then having someone else write the test for you...
