The Graduate Management Admission Test, used by business schools for admission to MBA programs, will now use fingerprinting to assure test security. People taking a test will have to provide a fingerprint when they check in and every time they enter a testing room. Digital photographs will also be required. The revamped procedures are part of a new partnership between the Graduate Management Admission Council, Pearson VUE, and ACT.
A research team at Central Missouri State University announced Tuesday that it had discovered the largest known prime number, 9.1 million digits long, the Associated Press reported.
