Can a person be a Haafiz if he makes mistakes?

Q: If a person memorizes the Quran, but makes a few mistakes while reciting it by memory, can he still become a Hafiz? Just to clarify can a person still pass his hifz test and become a hafiz if he makes mistakes?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
