Hello! I am planning on applying for JLPT exams which can happen by December this year, and its my first time doing this. I’d like an advice on which level I can take.
I tried sample exams for N3 before and I “passed” them. I’m still slow on the reading department, but I can read them. I generally have no problem in listening. So, I also tried N2 sample exams, and I found out my greatest weak point is the vocabulary (and of course kanji). Considering that application period will end by 2nd week of March, should I take the plunge and choose N2 exam or stay on the safe side and take N3? I can choose between taking the exam on July or December, but I plan to take the one in December.
I know the knowledge part is up to me, but I still hope to hear from veteran takers. Thank you!
