Like the original, this passes with flying colors as Miss Honey speaks with many women throughout the movie including Miss Thrunchbull and Mrs. Wormwood mostly about Matilda.

The current rating is only "passes 1/3," which must be a mistake. Within the first ten minutes, it passes (3/3) twice.

[1] Mrs. Phelps and Matilda [2] have a conversation [3] about the library.

[1] Miss Honey and Matilda [2] have a conversation [3] about school.

Your comment indicates that the movie should pass, but it’s not rated as such.

Matilda talked to many girls, she barely talked about boys, and there are more than 3 named women in it. I'm not sure why it has an X.

As the comments says, this movie "passes with flying colors." Why is it rated as only passing 1 test?

Passes all three tests. There are three named women characters who talk to each other about Matilda. Miss Honey and Miss Trunchbull have several conversations about Matilda.
If age were not a consideration then Matilda has many conversations with named female characters that are not about men.

Yeah this very clearly passes all three tests, as Brooklynlite pointed out

Definitely passes the test, 3 out of 3. Multiple female characters (Matilda, Miss Honey, Mrs. Phelps), who talk to each other about all kinds of things.

I think this got marked 1 out of 3 by mistake, but it's 3 out of 3.

Is the rating wrong, then?

This should have a green check if it passes with flying colors!

If it "passes with flying colors", why was it entered as only passing one of three tests?

Excuse me sweaty. This passes all three requirements of the Bechdel Test with flying colours.

There is multiple examples in matilda the musical where two women talk about something that isn’t a man. How did this get 1/3??
