- “I just thought [it was a mistake] and I’ll just ring them up and they’ll just listen to it again,” a stunned Louise Kennedy, 34, who has already been working as an equine vet in Queensland for two years, told the Irish Independent.
- “A really basic paragraph,” Kennedy said.
- Kennedy said she believes there was some kind of technical flaw in the software from the company Pearson, which runs the test.
- “It was even such a pain to have to take the whole day of work to do the test and then be told I can’t speak English,” Kennedy, who plans on re-taking the test at no cost, told the news outlet.
- A rep for Pearson told the Australian Associated Press that there was no error in their system or regarding the scoring of the test.
