There was a topic about it that I posted in back when I took it in January, but that’s been archived. Just as an aside, this seems to be the most appropriate existing category for this, but shouldn’t there be a “testing” category?
For those that are unfamiliar, here’s the website (only available in Japanese) http://j-test.jp/
One interesting thing about it is that it includes about 30 questions where there are no choices provided. You must write the answer on the answer sheet.
Another interesting thing is that it’s offered a lot more than JLPT, 6 times a year, but only in Japan and some east Asian countries.
In January I scored 517 points to get the D level certificate. I took it again in March, and just got my results.
This time I scored 608 points on the 1000 point scale, so I’ll get a C level certificate that is equivalent to N2 on JLPT.
There are two versions of the standard J-Test, and also a business version, but I’ll leave that aside for now.
There’s a beginner’s version, that has levels G, F, and E.
G = lower than N5
F = N5 = A1 on the CEFR scale
E = N4 = A2
The second version of the test is for intermediate and up.
D = N3 = B1
C = N2 = B2
B = N1 = C1
A = Better than N1 = C2
