As you’ll know if you’re a regular reader of this blog, back in July I took the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) level N4. It was difficult, and I didn’t feel very confident after taking the test, but today the scores were released and…
It was such a relief to know that all the hard work was worth it, and to know that my Japanese has improved (or at least hasn’t got any worse!).
The scoring system is a little complicated, and I don’t fully understand it, but I got 61/120 on ‘language knowledge’ (vocabulary/grammar and reading) and 45/60 on the listening section. My overall score was 106/180.
On N4, the overall pass mark is 90 points, so I only just made it!
As promised, now I have passed N4 I will begin studying for N3, and I’ll take that in July 2015.
