I’m nearly level 50 and I wanted to get advice on something.
From level 4, I’ve been going at a steady pace doing 15 lessons a day. My average level time is 10 days, 21 hours. At this rate, my subscription will run out just a little while after I finish level 60.
I have two options:
1. Start trying to go at max speed.
Pros: I would reach level 60 in only a month
There would be time for those higher level items to be burned
I would get to relax as my reviews slowly dwindle after reaching level 60.
There is a 2 week holiday coming up, so I would have time to do these reviews.
Cons: After that 2 week holiday is up, I have exams which would take up a lot of study time…
The month would be very tiring for me since I would have to do over 200-300 reviews per day, as well as lessons.
2. Stay at steady pace
Pros: I’ve been doing it for this whole time so it’s foolproof for me- no risk of burning out or reviews adding up.
I would still have time to reach level 60.
I would not have to endure all of the reviews and lessons.
Cons: It’s just… slow. And I would have to continue doing WaniKani for 3-4 months instead of just 1.
The higher level items would be half-learned since my subscription would run out before they are burned.
In other words: 1 month of extremely hard work (and the rest of the year to relax) or 3-4 months of steady work?
- Speed run
- Steady pace
