JLPT4 result!

28 02 2008

Yo Yo …. I knew I will get my JLPT4 result this week..

Know abt it from the admin uncle (hmm forgot his name liao *pondering hard*) in JCS last week – he stated we can get it this week.. so I thought I can get my result today (thursday) later when I go for my Jap class… *looking forward excitingly* =)

But received a letter yesterday from JCS… opening the letter .. it was the score report of the Japanese-language proficiency test….


————– Results ————-

Writing.Vocabulary もじ。ごい 文字。語彙: 91 /100

Listening ちょう かい 聴解: 53 / 100 (quite weak at this… *sianz*)

Reading.Grammar とっかいぶんぽう 読解。文法: 168 / 200

Total: 312 / 400  (78%)


I have practiced the past year JLPT4 exams then .. think they are good gauge to see how well you can score in actual JLPT4 … I scored abt 75% for yr 2006 paper and abt 80% for yr 2004 paper.  JLPT4 2007 was quite difficult, I felt… I have done easier past year papers….

Anyway …. Anyone wanna borrow these past year papers, may ask me.. =)

Though I am happy… I have bad news as well…. Jo didn’t make it this time…  The passing score for JLPT 4 is 60% (i.e. 240 marks). She is short of 43 marks… =( Hopefully she doesn’t take this as a blocking pt for her… and stop herself from progressing. In fact, she is improving a lot… her Katagana tests these few days were always full marks – with clover (teacher will draw clover for those full marks in test) … Her Writing.Vocabulary scored very well… 73/100 – proud of her.. coz those are not in the syllabus we took last year in our beginner year. Normally we need to study Beginner and Intermediate courses (2 years) to take JLPT4…. but we plunged in and decided to take JLPT4 after we finished our beginner course and hoping for the best (if not we have another chance – that is to take JLPT4 again or JLPT3 this year 2008). See more here.

Got this from JCS, not sure if it meant for the whole JLPT level, or only Sg’s applications or only those who registered in JCS…. But from these figures/results, Level 1 and Level 2 are really difficult lehh…. imagine the failure rate is higher than the passing rate!! *GOSH* scary nehh!! ={

Hi, first of all, congrats. =)
just happen to surf by ur blog… i am also a student of jcs… a elementary student though… also just got my JLPT 4 cert this week. Learnt basic japanese 4 years back and was just trying to revise myself last year and tried taking the paper.. and passed… i took elementary in jcs this year without knowing i would pass the paper…coz i fare real bad at my listening… (i was too nervous and was like ‘huh?!’ most of the time during the listening session) my listening pulled my marks down… but still make it to a pass. (somewhere ard 270) but i guess i will still stay at elementary with my pals as i tink i’d be sweating in the intermediate class alone. can i ask you… how are the exams at jcs like? i am taking the first exam in april. there’s oral, written paper, listening? (no multiple choice like jlpt rite?) sigh.. always sweat at papers. hence, need some advice. ^_^

You should go for intermediate class … then try for JLPT3 this end year…
See if u can switch to intermediate class.. show the school ur JLPT4 results.

Only JCS Final exam is considered in final grading. So just take the semester exams as a practice to ur final exam. Only in Final exams, then we will have oral, listening and written paper.. Semester exams is only written =)
