JLPT Placement Test


Helloooo, I’m going to study in Japan soon and will be taking Japanese classes according to my Japanese level. On the page of the application form, it says ‘JLPT placement test’. Do you think I’ll get some sort of JLPT test to see what my level is? Does anyone have experience with this?


There’s no official placement test, but presumably they could have cobbled together sample questions from a variety of levels and they’ll just see how you do on them. If you do well on the N5’s and then peter out on the N4’s or N3’s and beyond then they know where your ability is, etc… That would be my guess.


That makes a lot of sense, thank you!
