The body that runs America's SAT college-entrance exam has drastically tightened security, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
Under the new policy, the College Board will provide government agencies with the names of test prep businesses and students involved in cheating and prohibit them from taking any future tests it administers.
The College Board has been plagued for several years by cheating, including smuggling out of test questions by people who sit for money in Korea, China, and elsewhere abroad, taking advantage of a test method where questions are randomly pulled from a pool.
In September last year the College Board said it would cut the number of test administrations overseas from six a year to four, and cancel a test scheduled overseas in June.
