Warning: This post is just me ranting and complaining about WaniKani being difficult.
I have recently experienced a huge dip in my review accuracy and therefore also my motivation. Currently, I am in level 46, and have been on WaniKani since August 2019 (1 year + 4 months). I noticed that about 2-3 months ago things started to get substantially more difficult. My hypothesis is that items that has failed to get burned begins to come back at this time (a little more than 1 year since start), and then some serious leeches start to happen. I checked myself for leeches (items that you reoccurring get wrong) in levels 25-30 and did not really have any. Now I got lots. I learn them, only to get new leeches, and then forget the leeches I already thought I had relearnt and so on. I currently got about 200-250 reviews each day and have slowed down the pace, so I spend about 12 days at each level. On top of this I also started to notice that I have forgotten some items that I have burned, which is pretty demotivating. I do my reviews and lessons every single morning and have not had a day off since I started, but it is starting to get exhausting to spend hours each day on WaniKani while having the feel of chaos and failing a lot of reviews. Up to the mid 30-levels, I usually got 90-95% right, but now its more often 70-85%. I also fail to burn almost half of my enlightenments.
I hope that I can have a more serious look at my leeches after my exams and hope that might help a bit. There has been many complaining about the same dip in accuracy about a year in to WaniKani, so I wonder if any of you have any tips on learning or motivation. I also wonder if there is a script that can go over my burned items to see which ones I still really know, since I am very uncertain how many of them I still remember.
Cheers and thank you.
