SINGAPORE - A 26-year-old Indonesian maid tried to hang herself after failing her English-language entry test three times.
She is now in intensive care with brain damage.
The Straits Times reported that the maid, Ms Sulastri Wardyoyo, tried to hang herself at a maid hostel last Saturday.
According to staff at the hostel, she was allegedly depressed after failing her English-language entry tests.
Failing the test would mean she would have to leave the country, and pay back any loan taken.
The Straits Times reported that she may have taken more than $1,000 in loans to come here.
Ms Sulastri arrived early last week and was housed by employment agency Budget Maid in a maid hostel in the north.
All new maids have to clear the Foreign Worker Domestic Entry test within three days of their arrival, according to the Ministry of Manpower regulations.
Ms Sulastri, who is married with a child, took the test last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and failed in all tries.
On Saturday morning, she was found in a toilet cubicle on the second floor of the hostel where she and other maids were lodged.
A trainer at the hostel, Madam Lee, told the Straits Times they thought she had fainted inside: 'We used a screwdriver to prise open the lock, and then we saw her hanging from the shower head with a cloth.'
'When the other maids saw her, they screamed like crazy and became very, very scared,' she said.
Ms Sulastri was sent to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
Madam Lee also said Ms Sulastri usually kept to herself and would cry everyday after failing the test.
An Ministry of Manpower (MOM) spokesman told the Straits Times that the ministry regularly reviews the entry test and the way it is conducted.
She said 'there are benefits' to holding the test in the workers' home countries, but a key concern was 'ensuring the integrity and credibility of test providers overseas'.
