Due to corona, many JLPT testing locations have cancelled the July edition of the JLPT. @Scylie and I were discussing the organization of a mock JLPT test (every level) on July 4th to substitute for the cancelled test. It would basically be the same thing as taking the actual JLPT, except you would stay at home and not get a certificate (sadly)… One upside is that you can take multiple levels, if you want.
I personally really benefit from having a clear goal, and I think it’d be really nice if we could motivate each other and discuss our progress! We could also share study materials and studying strategies. The poll below also asks you to indicate whether you’d be interested in studying together. Of course, this option is also available to those who are able to take the actual JLPT. Studying together is definitely not necessary, it is completely fine to only join the mock test on July 4th.
In practice, we would probably use the mock test on the websites of jlptsensei.com or the JLPT website. So if you are interested in joining, you should probably not use the one we choose to practice. Afterwards we could all calculate our scores and see whether we would have passed.
This topic is just to see if anyone would be interested in joining!
TLDR: joint mock test JLPT on July 4th to substitute for cancelled JLPT + maybe studying together (probably just on wanikani forums), yes or no?
- Yes, and I am interested in studying together (through wanikani forums)
- Yes, but I am not interested in studying together (through wanikani forums)
- I will take the actual JLPT, but am interested in studying together (through wanikani forums)
- No, but I am interested in studying together (through wanikani forums)
- Not sure
- Not sure
This is just an idea that has not actually been worked out, so questions and suggestions are very welcome!
Update March 3rd:
jlpt-sensei/jlpt mock exam on July 4th, at the time the actual JLPT is at in your country (guideline, in reality you’re free to take the test whenever you want, but after July 4th we may start discussing questions and answers!)
Attempt to calculate weights to give an indication for scores
note: this is not how the JLPT calculates its scores, as they use answering patterns (i.e., questions that are answered correctly by many people are marked as ‘easy’ and weigh less). Therefore, this is just an indication and not what your actual score would be like.
Studying together in an unstructured thread with (1) weekly or monthly check-in polls (progress, strengths, etc.), (2) freedom to ask any questions you want, (3) freedom to share progress/strategies/anything you might want
Feel free to create your own thread with subgroups for more intensive studying if preferred
possible to join/drop out at any time
The main thread will be created at the latest at March 8th, so feel free to leave any comments/questions/suggestions you may have!
