PUBLICATIONS:

In the article, journalists reported a high likelihood that at least 1,000 students committed fraud on the Enem (the Brazilian admissions test – similar to the SAT in the US). The government has ordered an investigation into these allegations, and the possibility of systemic fraud. So far, they have confirmed 14 cases.
