Taipei, Dec. 24 (CNA) A Test of English for International Communications, better known as TOEIC, test session in Taiwan was canceled Sunday because the questions spoken in English for audio broadcasting did not match the content printed in the test book, affecting about 24,000 test-takers.

The TOEIC test started with a listening comprehension test, according to the Taiwan organizer of the test.

However, when the first audio question was spoken, some test takers reported that the question did not match the answer sheet in the test book, the organizer said, adding that it decided to cancel the test and send the test-takers home.

Follow-up remedial measures will be published on the TOEIC Taiwan website at 10 a.m. the following day, it said.

The audio tape was sent from the United States and the error was the first of its kind since the TOEIC test was launched in Taiwan several years ago, according to the organizer.
