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.

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.
