JLPT Level 4 (2006)
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.
Let's just wait for the results in March 2007. It's still too good to be hopeful.
