IELTS scam, Curtin University employee charged with fraud
An inquiry into an English language test scam at Curtin University has found usernames and passwords were shared to falsify scores.

A Corruption and Crime Commission report tabled in Parliament today found a former Curtin University staff member accepted bribes to log into the International English Language Testing System under another staff member's name to change scores. The tests are part of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's application process for visas or permanent residency.

Mr Kok Keith Low, a former staffer at the university, is one of 12 people to receive sentences for a total of 73 counts of bribery.

Mr Low is currently serving a two-year sentence over his involvement in the scheme.The report said a number of factors allowed Mr Low to alter the scores of those doing the IELTS tests including:

  • Curtin staff were involved in the testing shared usernames and passwords to access the Australia-wide IELTS database if it crashed, allowing Mr Low to logon using the name of other staff.

  • The IELTS database could only detect the last score entered and could not track changes made to test scores.

  • Periodical audits of the test forms used in the tests were not conducted. Curtin University has since cancelled its involvement in IELTS and the database has been upgraded.
