Missed by 1 point on N4 - 89/180. Ugh! It was the listening section that killed me. Congratulations to all who passed!

Family JLPT Results:

Daddy (me): N3 FAIL… 84/180 (ouch!) but “A” on vocab - thanks Wanikani! No big shocker - I was way in over my head.

Daughter: N2 PASS!! 132/180 overall

Son: N2 PASS!! 132/180 overall.

The equal scores between kids amused us all. My son did better on vocab and worse on reading compared to my daughter. They both got 60/60 on listening, which is no shocker since they are more conversationally fluent.

I passed N5. I did about as well on the listening section as I expected, but I’m disappointed with my language knowledge/reading score. Oh well, time to start studying for N4 in December.

Passed N5!! I’m really happy but not too satisfied with the score tbh. Well, I’ll have to do better on the N4 :grin:

Congrats to anyone who passed! And to those who didn’t, your efforts weren’t for nothing, on to the next one!

Not part of WaniKani’s community but I’ve been reading this thread during the weeks leading to D-day. Didn’t think I would make it, but as it turned out…

My best advice for the N1 is, grab a book series like Kanzen Master or Nihongo Sou Matome, divide the books in parts and write yourself a study plan for the whole year (cause there’s hell to cover). Add every new word of vocabulary and every new grammar point you meet as a sentence in a flashcard, using a software like Anki. If you can, use a text-to-speech software to convert that sentence into a spoken mp3 too. The Anki decks I built have by now more than 6000 sentences. Wake up with a 10-min Japanese podcast, go to sleep reading one Japanese news article. Consistency throughout the year is the key to success.

Cheers to everybody who succeeded and hugs to everybody who will have to wait until next time! Now on my way to parteeey!

I passed the N5! I did about as I expected. I need more listening practice :sweat_smile:. But I’m still super happy with my results and already thinking about the next test. Congrats to everyone that took the test!

Passed N3! :smiley:
And I didn’t expect to have 60/60 for Vocab/Grammar.
Reading is still lagging behind though… Need to practice before N2 this year :wink:

HAHAHA I went gambling and I won by the skin of my teethe. I couldn’t read a solid third of the questions since I was only level 6. I credit my ass-saving listening score to the power of God and anime. Don’t do this guys, do your kanjis

Passed N2 (not by much, but I’ll take it :laughing:)!

I was really surprised by the scoring. I thought I did horrible in listening and I actually thought I might have done better in language knowledge… (think it might have been some grammar questions that let me down here). Reading seems about right I’d say… (which is awful, because I’ve actually been reading quite a lot last year :joy: )

Anyway, plan is to take N1 in July and, if I fail that, again in December.

I also realised something this morning. This year is my 10 year studying Japanese anniversary. Mind you, a large majority of that time I didn’t do any Japanese and a large majority of the remaining time I only did WaniKani because I didn’t like numbers piling up. But still, it’s weird seeing that 10 years ago in August, I officially learnt my first Japanese anything. Would be amazing if I passed the N1 in July (not convinced, but here’s to hoping, hey? :joy:)
