You made this durtle’s day:

Good job everyone for your level up !

I am just passing quickly to make a post it for myself :
Level 13 : 18 days 1 hour
Level 14 : 15 days 19 hours

I am pretty happy now because I wanted originally to be level 16 for december 2019. I am not that far for my previous goal :smiley_cat:
I think I can do all my possible now to try to have the level to pass N3 this December.
Anyone has taken N3 when never took any previous JLPT test before ? Have you any advice for that ?

Thanks! But I don’t get a colour wheel when I try to change the colours in the script menu. So I have nothing to relate it to. I’ll try to use an RGB picker.

This was what I ended up with. Not exactly a match, but hey, the pink looks like Sakura so I’ll take it :grin:

I need to do more leech training.
My percentages are going down.

I did, and I passed.
I think it’s important to look up on what the test will ask you. As in, the way the questions work. The grammar where you have to fill in 4 bits and then say which one goes in the place of the star for example can really throw you off if you don’t practice it a bit first.
Other than that, just do some practice tests a few times to see where your weakness lies.
There are definitely words and kanji on the test that I have learned using wanikani. So doing that is always beneficial.

JLPT N3 was the first one I took and I passed it in Dec 2019 with flying colors.
I was wk lvl 30 around September when I stopped new lessons and only did reviews a few times a week. Instead of daily lessons and reviews I was doing grammarvand reading practice using Shin Kanzen Master: first N4, then N3.

I also did two practice JLPTs using the official mock test books. Based on my experience with these I developed a strategy (i.e. best way to solve each problem and how long I can spend on each question).

My experience taking different tests back in school/uni helped a lot.

Oh right, that’s a good idea! I just signed up for N3 in July. If I stop doing lessons in April/May that of course would come with more time to spend on studying grammar. :thinking:

Level 15! Completed 14 in 6 days 21 hours!

For some reason I thought level 26 is a fast level and was really looking forward to tryhard this weekend after I reached 26 today. Now I’ve done all these kanji lessons in one day for nothing!

Well it was a fast level a couple of years ago, looking at jprspereira’s’ level up times. But there have been changes to the fast levels since then.
Every time I level up and see that there are few radicals I’m worried I may be on a fast level, but I think they start at level forty-something now…

Leveled up and now I’m in hell.

Yep. If you ever want to check, look at how many 漢字 you have unlocked as soon as you level. If it’s <90%, not fast! :fast_forward:

I hit 0/0 yesterday. It was nice. Then I guru’d the radicals this morning, so the last 6 kanji showed up.
I did the last 6 kanji earlier this evening and hit 0/0 again.
Then I guru’d the first batch of kanji. I have 16 lessons pending.
100 of lessons of kanji to do, 100 of lessons of kanji, knock them down, guru around, another 100 kanji to do.
:woman_shrugging: that’s life.
