    Post Let maids take test in home country': Indonesian officials

    Indonesian maids wanting to work in Singapore should be allowed to take the written English test in their home country to avoid unnecessary travel and costs.

    That is one of the key recommendations made by Indonesian representatives who met officials from the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) on Monday.

    The meeting was initiated by members of the National Board for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Overseas Workers, an agency which oversees the welfare of Indonesians working abroad.

    It comes as the ministry conducts a review of the mandatory test, which was introduced in 2005. The review was launched after an Indonesian maid tried to hang herself in May after failing three times. She died a few days later.

    this is so sad. can understand she must be really terried for failing the test. she must have borrowed $ from relatives to come here and therefore cannot afford to go back home. but then again, taking the test there but not be feasible as concern of corruption. officials might just let them pass the test with favours in return.
