I took level N1 (the highest) of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test last month (mostly as part of setting myself a goal to get back into putting more effort into my studying over the last year or so). The results came out today, and I passed!
- Vocabulary/grammar: 45/60
- Reading: 60/60
- Listening: 56/60
- Total: 161/180 (which is a solid pass, given the pass/fail border is at 100; less than 19 in any one section is also a fail)
They also provide what they call "reference information" (ie it doesn't affect whether you pass or not) which says that my vocab is a "B" and the grammar an "A".
I think I was lucky to get a perfect score on the reading section: usually there's one question that I find tricky enough that I have to guess it or get it wrong. Vocab's always been my weakest area. Really happy with this overall, anyway.
