    I was told by a friend of mine who's Mum works in a college reception that sometimes when they take your photo for college ID that they capture your iris from your eye, is this true?

    No, that's a load of crap.

    I think it's supposed to be "scan your iris". I'm not even sure what the point would be, iris recognition is only used to enhance security.

    It means that the IELETS probably has domestic applications after all.

    I understood this as if you zoomed in enough you got a good image of the iris? No?

    My old college didn't seem to spend more than £5 for a webcam to take pictures, let alone spending more on one to do that.

    This is categorically false. An iris camera is a very sophisticated device that is specifically designed to capture an image of an individual's iris in high definition so it can be assigned data points and stored as a biometric template. If the college is taking your photo, chances are it is with a normal digital camera that does not have the capability to capture a high quality image of the iris - it should be known that a normal camera does not have this capability. If it was an iris camera, they would be required to inform you that they are capturing a photo of your iris and if they didn't, in the absence of a back end biometric search system the photo of the iris would be useless.
