Assuming all other criteria are met, under what circumstances will an application for naturalization be denied where the applicant passed the English test and responded meaningfully to all interview questions, but allegedly does not understand the oath of allegiance?

I asked if it would be for August 29th, and she said she was not sure whether it would be that day or in September.
