Disappointment May 23, 2017

I tried and failed the test for Italian language some time ago, with 75.33%.
Here's the updated message on my Hermes dashboard:

"If you are an applicant who has applied for individual consideration, we thank you for taking the Hermes subtitling test. Your completed tests have been received and stored. Unfortunately, your results at this time do not reach the required threshold for your language for further consideration and correction of section 5. The threshold is based on yo

I tried and failed the test for Italian language some time ago, with 75.33%.
Here's the updated message on my Hermes dashboard:

"If you are an applicant who has applied for individual consideration, we thank you for taking the Hermes subtitling test. Your completed tests have been received and stored. Unfortunately, your results at this time do not reach the required threshold for your language for further consideration and correction of section 5. The threshold is based on your average score from the first four sections and derived from the top performers and overall percentile unique to each language. Please save your Hermes # for identification in the future should there be any new developments.

If you are an applicant who has applied in association with a vendor(s), thank you for taking the Hermes subtitling test. At this time, your score is available here for you to view and discuss with the vendor(s) with which you are associated. Please save your Hermes # for identification in the future."

I find it extremely disappointing from an organizational point of view. On the one hand, I understand that in this way they don't need to submit further tests or something like that to the applicants; but on the other hand, I wasted my time translating those subtitles and they will never be reviewed or corrected - maybe my job was fine, after all, even though I failed the multiple choice due to high threshold percentiles for my language. I will never know.
With a little more organization before launching this Hermes thing, they could've split the whole process in two steps and saved more time, I guess, both from our and from their point of view.
I'm very disappointed.

Threshold met Jun 6, 2017

Hi, everyone! I have met the threshold with 86% in Eng-Rus pair.
I actually didn't find the test too difficult. There were some nuances but in general it was fine.

BTW, they didn't send me any congratulations emails or anything like that. It's been only yesterday that I've remembered of the thing and logged into Hermes dashboard to see if there's any feedback there.

Italian test Jun 6, 2017

Greetings, everyone.
I submitted the English-Italian test today. My result of 85,33% was under the acceptable threshold for Italian, apparently. Regardless, it's been an interesting experience.

Met italian threshold 92% Jun 6, 2017

Hi! I met the threshold with 92% in Eng-Ita pair.
They didn't send me any email either.
Actually I did the test a month ago, I even send them an email asking for some info, and I haven't heard from them yet.
Does anyone know something more?

Thanks,
Matteo

Congrats. But the best approach is probably forgetting about this and continuing living your life. Then, one day, a good surprise might come to you...

Hi, anyone from Czech Republic who took the test for English-Czech. I passed with 89.5% and I think my phase 5 was pretty good too. I did the test 4 days ago and I wanted to know if anyone got their job already or any reply after test at all and how long after the test? Thanks for reply everyone.

Welcome to the waiting game. You should get comfortable.

This is pretty much the most serious hub I have found regarding this topic, and it has been pretty much dead since about a month ago.

As someone else said above, it is best to forget about it and move on with other stuff for now.

Whatever Jun 19, 2017

Did the test yesterday. English - Polish. 95,67%

I have a very strong hunch that time is also part of the mix. Did the whole test in 47 minutes instead of the total time limit of 130 minutes, so I'm thinking that might have impacted my score.

A couple of questions / choices were poor in my opinion. Could have gone either way, noted a few questions where I'm pretty sure there were two good answers, but you can only select one. In general found the multiple choice part ve

tech issue in test / no reply yet Jun 26, 2017

Hi guys,
I did the English-German test 2 weeks ago. As my browser couldn't play the videos in part 3 I got 0 points in that part and thus, failed. I then sent an e-mail to them, asking if I could re-do part 3. Still no answer. After having read the comments here I tried to register / apply again, logged in with my H-number, but still, on the page I see my result.
Does anyone know what I can do now? I sent them 2-3 mails and no answer yet. What happens if I register with another e-ma

Thanks!

Hello!

I had the same problem when I took the test a while ago.

I almost gave up after wasting so much time out of the allocated minutes by stopping the timer repeatedly, trying everything I could think of (re-installing Chrome, the Flash player, on a PC and a Mac, messing with the antivirus software, etc) . Sent an email to the support team but received no reply.

Before giving up completely, I decided to try different browsers and bingo! 'Opera' did the job for me.

Good luck!

new phone number - now passed the test! Jul 3, 2017

Hi Matteo,
thanks a lot for the advice! I registered with a new no. yesterday and this time I passed the first 4 parts of the test (English-German, about 85%).

Will I ever hear from Netflix again? I see people here writing that they have been waiting for a response from Netflix for a long time.

Regards
Cem
