JLPT Level 4 (2006)

This morning, I went to La Salle - Taft to take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT - level 4)of the Japan Foundation. For the last 2 wednesdays, Weng sensei was kind enough to give us reviews in preparation for the "shiken". For our latest mock JLPT exam wherein we answered the exam given on 2001, I had fairly passed the test. I was able to do it without even reviewing any notes.

We must be able to obtain a 60% mark in order to be certified. One nice thing about the exam is that there are multiple choices. However, there are so many items and some items are multiplied to a certain factor in order to get the raw score. This gives us difficulty in getting a high grade.

Surprisingly, this year's JLPT turned out to be quite difficult. There were terms used that I was not familiar of; the "choukai" (listening portion) was much more difficult; all in all, the items were very tricky. I'd say there is a big difference between the previous JLPT's from this year's.

Last semester, I was deciding on whether or not I should take the JLPT. Before, I was thinking of its opportunity cost. Now, I guess I could consider it as sunk cost.

Or not.

Let's just wait for the results in March 2007. It's still too good to be hopeful.

Good day ScIoN...
We took the JLPT exam in the same date. Is there a site that shows the results of the JLPT exam? If there is, can I ask what is it?

Thank you very much.
