I passed JLPT level 4!


I passed JLPT level 4!

  11:23:53 am, Categories: Main blog, Japanese Language

Yeay, I passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level 4!! (Level 4 is the lowest level, but still ;p) I got my official certificate in the mail today. I wasn't expecting it so early, because they said it would probably be around the beginning of March.

My scores:
Part 1: Kanji & Vocabulary: 85 / 100
Part 2: Listening: 71 / 100
Part 3: Reading & Grammar: 130 / 200

Total: 286 / 400 = 71.5% (and you need 60% to pass the test)

The statistics for the last test are not yet on the JLPT website.

But I'm so happy that I got it, because I wasn't sure about whether I would pass or not, but I even made it with 11.5% above it ;p Now, on to level 3. I now know a bit more what I must focus on, which is for example, to quickly recognize from what verb a conjugated form comes. Because I know how to form that conjugation, but to do the reverse quickly is very important, especially for the listening test and the grammar, as you don't have heaps of time to think. I had already started on my kanji for level 3 last month, the rest is during the course of the year, and hopefully I will pass again for the exam on December 7th.

i was completely forgotten that i have sat for JLPT 3 kyuu last december (2 dec 2007), one day my father called me to tell that the result had been posted to my house and fortunately i passed the exam (i was shocked bcz i thought that i didnt give my full effort for the prep classes and the exam itself; as i was always feared of the listening paper)..though i didnt passed with flying colours i still managed to score more than 300 marks. but this year i may be able to take JLPT 2 kyuu exam as i want to struggle for my university thesis. here’s my results:-
- JLPT 4 (2006) = 313/400
- JLPT 3 (2007) = 309/400
for both papers, i was slacked at listening, i didnt have any problem with my kanji (you have to learn hundreds of them but only 20 kanji will be tested in the exam)..well, i’m from malaysia actually..hehe..
for those who will be taking JLPT, plz give your very best shot for the exam! ganbatte kudasai!
