Ferris Off Day

The English listening section of a recent university entrance examination was mistakenly written out on the test papers. The test was held on February 3 for the faculty of Global and Inter-cultural Studies at Ferris University in Yokohama. No one noticed the error, and none of the 388 applicants said anything, until it was picked up by an administrator five minutes before the exam finished. The mistaken section will be considered as a reading exercise and no adjustments will be applied to test scores. The test was prepared last autumn by a team of five English teachers.
