Japanese Language Proficiency Test
Today I went to take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level 2. It was my first time passing the test, at any level.
I can't quite tell whether it went well or not until I get my scores in mid-February.
There are three parts to the test: writing/vocabulary, listening, and reading.
I think I did ok in writing (which doesn't involve actually writing but just picking the correct answer, since the whole test is choice-based) and expect maybe between 60-70% (alright, that's not so good but it's above the pass mark), and I think I did quite well in the listening part, perhaps around 80-90%.
However, I had quite a bit of trouble in the reading part. The test began with long texts and I spent a while on these, and at the end I didn't have time to do about 10 questions so I picked randomly. Overall, the reading test was also pretty hard and I didn't have much confidence with a lot of questions, so this one is left to 運 (un, "luck"). I wouldn't expect scoring more than 40-50%.
So, adding up my estimates, I'll be either just above the pass mark (60%), or below... I'll know in 3 months.
Although it would surely be a waste of my money and time if I wasn't to pass, it's not like if the test was decisive for a job or something, I took it mostly for testing my skills (or the lack of) for myself, so I'm not overly worried.
Anyway, I surely feel like I still have a lot to go through in my learning of Japanese.
At least I'm glad this is over with. :)
