Does anyone else think the Guru 1 interval (1 week) is too long? I’ve long felt that Guru 1 is the hardest review stage (apart from Apprentice 1 of course), but after doing some calculations using the WK api, I now have the numbers to prove it.
For vocabulary, my accuracy rates on Apprentice 4, Guru 1, and Guru 2 are currently 85.8%, 71.7%, and 80% respectively. I knew it felt like I was missing a lot of Guru reviews, but it was still surprising to see such a sharp drop.
For kanji, they are 97.9%, 90.5%, and 93.2%, which also shows a big drop at Guru 1, although the Kanji numbers are biased somewhat because Apprentice reviews are required to level up so I try a lot harder on them.
P.S. These numbers may also be biased by the fact that I’ve only been on WK for a month so the only vocabulary coming up for Guru 2 reviews are the relatively easy ones from the early levels. Perhaps I should wait another month and redo the calculations to get more convincing numbers.
