Defeating my stack of ~3500 reviews

So I hit level 60 at the end of last November in preparation for the JLPT N1. It took me about two and a half years of wanikani to do it, so not the fastest ever but I’m proud of it.

I ended up failing N1 by a very slim margin. Now it’s time to take my revenge.

This thread is to chronicle my attempts at clearing my current review stack. I’m not sure if anyone has ever attempted to clear a stack this large, so we’ll see how far I get. If I remember correctly I average about 200 reviews an hour, so this should take me at LEAST 17 hours to clear (add on extra for all the vocab that will inevitably come right back in the pile). Wish me luck :slight_smile:

At first I thought those were lessons, that you skipped the vocab in favor of learning the kanji for N1

That´s the highest number I have seen here. Why didn’t you engaged vacation mode after finishing?

Yo should film your screen and make a quick edit of the big number at the start and then the final 0, and make it into a GIF. It could be used to motivate people complaining about 300 reviews.

Good luck with that stack of reviews, you’ll need it!

I actually did but I took it off while on a japan trip so I could quick review and forgot to put it back on lmao

shows off flair That will be more than double the amount I did. I think you can do it, but it will certainly take time and effort. Good luck!

You should get a special flare commemorating this if you actually manage to hit 0 lol

I only had like 700 reviews after being inactive for few months, but my level is low I guess. Anyway, good luck. Oh, and I support the idea of making a gif out of your screen :smiley:

I think the most I ever had was 2800. Just takes some persistence

Did another 300ish. It’s crazy how much motivation making a thread like this will give you.

It’s hard not to feel bad when you miss a bunch of words you ought to know. Clearing a stack like this basically consists of 18 hours of having that feeling when a word is on the tip of your tongue but you just barely don’t remember it. It’s honestly maddening.

It’s maddening and time consuming, though I never had a stack THAT big. 頑張れ

I’m so impressed right now!

And a little scared. I would never be able to endure a stack of reviews that big.
I look forward to that gif, and the inspirational boost you will give us when you’ve finally reached 0 :wink:

I have 3670 reviews to do, because I got knocked out of my routine back in May and never got back into it. I really ought to.

Most of those are burn reviews, so they won’t come back to bother me again later…
