    Can we say in english ''to bomb a test'' meaning ''to fail a test'' or ''to flunk a test''. Is ''bomb'' correctly used in this meaning?
    Many thanks for your help.

    Yes, that's exactly what it means. In French it would be "rater un examen" ou "échouer à un examen". There are probably many more slang terms but I'm not really familiar with any :)

    "Bombed" is correctly used in this meaning. :) It could also be "I bombed on that test."

    One familiar French equivalent would be se planter à un examen.
