So we took the 2019 July JLPT and it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. For myself I pretty much only did the Nihongo Soumatome Vocabulary course on memrise – finishing it literally minutes before the test was going to begin and about 40% of the Bunpo JLPT N3 grammar list.
I hope that I passed, I cannot be conclusively sure.
One of the amazing things about taking the exam is seeing how much you can improve over time. I remember taking the N3 exam previously and being very embarrassed and angry about how unprepared for it I was.
This time it was really fun.
I knew about 50% of the answers for sure – and the others I had a pretty good idea that I was guessing the correct ones.
Regardless if I pass or fail – it was a rewarding experience and I am motivated to push forward to the JLPT N2.
