LOL, I already knew the result the moment I finished the test last year – just don’t know how many points (or lack of it) that I did for all 3 papers.
Well, I just received the results today and ….
here’s the actual (bad) scores:
1. Writing/Vocabulary [文字 / 語彙 ] – 53 / 100
I guess most of those 53 pts were for the 文字 section. My 語彙 are non-existent here 😛 .
2. Listening [ 聴解 ] – 39 / 100
WOW! I actually have some marks here … it’s even higher that I expected, I thought I only scored around 10s…
FYI, this section is always, always my weakest link – even in JLPT 3.
3. Reading-Grammar [ 読解 / 文法 ] – 91 / 200
Hmm… guess most (or all) of those 91 pts were for the 文法. I don’t know what I did/answered in 読解. Due to lack of time, I “tembak” most of that section – at least 2/3 (or probably more) of those reading sections.
Total: 183 / 400. Passing point is 60% or higher, which means 240 / 400 or higher. Mine is 45.75%, so it’s 15% short (or 57 pts)…hahaha, a long way to go for me.
Will I take it again this year (where the L2 becomes N2) ?
Don’t think so … but I may change my mind … aiyoh, take test, needs time to prepare, which I dont have ler. Moreover, I have stopped my Japanese classes since the test last year and dont intend to re-join this year.
Anyway, according to what I’ve read, there’s no difference (in terms of content) between L2 and N2, except that you have 2 papers now, instead of 3. “文字 / 語彙” and “読解 / 文法” will be in 1 sitting (1 paper) while “聴解” is in the 2nd paper.
