Netflix Hermes test
Thread poster: Magdalena Bardalinska
Media coverage Apr 27

I wonder if the media will cover all these issues with the same enthusiasm they covered the launching of the Hermes test, if they'll get to know about it, if someone will tell them...

I am wondering how many minutes of video they got translated for free.



I'm pretty sure they didn't get free translation for most languages - most of the materials are already subtitled on Netflix.

Thank you Apr 27

Actually, anyone can retake the test just by starting again the registration process and using a different cell number.


Thanks for confirming it, Maria. I suspected as much. It said throughout the process that they do not keep any data on candidates.
I was told they do not keep the cell numbers either, so I assumed as much.

I do not see the point of only giving people one chance. I've seen people try their hand a second time at the same texts and they make the same errors every time. So, there is no point in that, particularly with a large number of questions to pull from.

Some people in the thread were expecting tests from other languages than English. During registration, it was stated the test is only available in English.

HTH

Hi everyone,

does anybody know what the threshold for the Czech was? I scored 75,33%, so I would like to know. Thank you.

80.66% was a pass.


Thank you, though after reading the thread I am at a loss. Would expect Netflix to apply more professional approach to testing.

Hi, I scored 91.33% and passed. A friend scored 76.67% and failed. Anyone else in between?

From what I am reading from friends and colleagues, the minimum score changes from a language to the other. For example a 84 or 85% in Italian was not enough to pass, while an 80% was enough for other languages.
