... elle ait eu son examen” is translated as “she got her exam.” Is that the same as “she passed her exam”?
If so, can we just stay with “she passed her exam”? If we were saying she got her degree or got her license, it would not be a problem.
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate verbs in Le Subjonctif Passé (past subjunctive)"
Yes, you are correct:
Elle a eu son examen. -- She passed her exam.Ella a passé son examen. -- She took her exam.
However, this distinction is apparently not widely and not stricktly observed. At least that's my impression after talking to several native French speakers.
-- Chris (not a native speaker).
