IELTS Global Law Suit USD$10 billion

  1. 1. An example of a compensation claim Ravi Patel v IDP Education Australia Class Action Law Suit: circa AUD$5 billion (IELTS Examiner Fraud) Name: Mr. Ravi Kumar Patel, Citizen of India Course: Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Sydney, 2014 to 2016. Objective: To secure a permanent residency visa in Australia (skilled worker). Outcome: Could not secure a permanent residency visa due to failed IELTS scores. This outcome was due to examiner fraud committed by IDP Education. IELTS test scores: 2016 and 2017 Skill Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 Test 5 Test 6 Reading 8.5 8.5 8.5 8.5 8.5 8.5 Writing 8.5 6.5 8.5 6.5 8.5 6.5 Listening 8.5 8.5 8.5 8.5 8.5 8.5 Speaking 6.5 8.5 6.5 8.5 6.5 8.5 (Total fees paid for IELTS exams: AUD$1, 980) For immigration purposes, Ravi Patel needed to achieve four 7.0 scores for each skill on the same day, per Australia’s skilled immigration laws. Ravi earned 8.5 for each skill on each test.
  2. 2. Each score of 6.5 was a result of examiner fraud conducted by the Chief Examiner at Sydney University’s IELTS test center. The Chief Examiner is under instruction from IELTS head office that no more than 3% of English language testers may be awarded a score of 7.0 or higher for all four skills taken on the same test. IELTS believe that the Canadian Government and Australian Government are their customers. Each score of 6.5 was a result of fraud by the Chief Examiner. The Chief Examiner can detect from Ravi’s IELTS application form that he plans to immigrate to Australia. The Chief Examiner lowers the achievement mark of 8.5 to 6.5 for speaking and writing as the assessment procedure for these skills are subjective. These skills are the easiest to cheat and IELTS do not publicly release candidate’s examination content. Total legal claim against IDP Education: AUD$ Tuition fees 90,000 Flights 4,000 Mandatory Health Insurance 3,000 IELTS Exam Fees 1,980 Mental Health Service Fees 10,000 Damages to mental health 50,000 ====== Total compensation claim: 158,980
