JCS Exams – Listening, Dictation & Kanji

19 11 2008

I had my Jap JCS Intermediate (B class) Listening, Dictation and Kanji tests on this evening, 7-8pm.. 3 tests in 1 hr.

First is listening. There are 4 parts in listening, 1st part – with pictures (choose correct pics), there was this weather thing (i dunno what is the correct answer), direction check (answer is 2 – I got it wrong! Check with sensei), about bread pic, which person is xx … Total 5 qs for this section. I think maybe i got 2 correct? 6/15. 2nd part and 3rd parts, I totally blurr .. catch no ball.. trying to concentrate to listen and think too hard, that I missed the consequent qs… very disgusting feeling.. 4th part of listening should be my strongest part. Coz it was played twice. Should be able to score 10/10. So total for listening, if I can pass and score 25/50, I think I am a happy person already! Listening – my killer… esp for JLPT3! *sigh*

But seriously JCS should improve their sound speakers and recording way… many noise in background, voice is soft … i was just distracted with many stuffs.. *unhappy*

For Dictation, I should score well. Just in case, some mistakes here and there, I hope I can at least score 45/50. If not, maybe 48/50.

For Kanji, I am aiming 50/50. Should be able to score full marks, unless some careless accident/mistakes. I thought Kanji needs to write all, I was in for pleasant treat where there are 2 sections in Kanji, (multiple choices and written). I think many welcome the multiple choice section.. hahaa

So now having a break, but not too long as the next exam to prepare will be JLPT3 on 7th Dec 2008


Thank you Lord for your wisdom and leading =)

did you sit far back? there were some drilling noises in the background, but amazingly it stopped at exactly 7 p.m. when the exam started! Sensei was quite amused by that.

yeah, listening was the toughest. so u mean for the bank question, answer is 2? *sad Do you know the rest of the picture answers? me also quite blur for section 2.

btw, the listening drills they gave u in the prep course is same as their exam or more like jlpt 3 format? im going to start intensive revision for jlpt 3 tml already ( a bit disheartened by the crappy compo that i wrote). maybe we can exchange pointers during revision?

Yippeeee~~ finally all the JCS papers are over…. \\(^ ^)//
minna otsukaresama deshita….

talking about the JCS audio systems ==”…. i too think they seriously need an upgrading to their sound systems and recording systems…. section 1, 2 and 3 of the listening totally clueless……the story of Chin-san was ok……. dictation and kanji section mo ok desu……

i think passing is not a problem… i will go on with the advance class 😀

Juskawaime, will you be continuing in your current time slot for next year’s advance class?

Katran, you are also from weekday class? continuing in the same time slot?
