The July test is a new addition that came as a welcomed revision to how the JLPT was conducted from 2010 on. For those of you living in Asia and in some locations on a few other continents, you are able to take the JLPT twice a year. In Japan, it seems like they like to give the test in a hot month and a cold month just to see how you perform under temperature restraints.
I hope everyone was able to get all the studying they could get in before the big day. There is nothing more motivating than a looming deadline to get you off your duff and start studying.
No matter what is going through your head at the moment, you did, it’s finished. It’s time to get some rest and patting yourself on the back for all the hard studying you did. You did study right? Well, even if you didn’t study that much, the test will serve as a good wake up call for you to see where you are with your learning and how to adjust your studying for next test.
What your impressions?
Anyway, what were your impressions of the test? I’d like to know how it went. Take some time to leave a comment about your experience below. Could you let us know:
- Where did you take the test? (in Japan?, Europe?)
- What level?
- What was the most difficult section of the exam?
- What was the easiest?
- And how did you prepare for the exam?
- Was your study plan effective? or are you going to change something for next time?
Letting us all know how you prepared is a big boost to your fellow JLPTers so take the time to brag about your awesome study methods. It will be a huge help for everyone.
Results from the 2016 JLPT July Test
So, you might be wondering when the actual results will be headed your way. If you registered online in Japan, they probably told you that they will be available in the first part of September. But, if history is any guide, the results will be electronically available on the last Tuesday of August. To be exact, they will be available just after midnight, August 30th. However, the server is usually completely overloaded at that time and it will take a while for you to get in. So, you can either try to hammer your way in for 30-40 minutes or simply wait until morning of the next day and hopefully make your way in then.
Either way, I hope you all did your best, and I’m looking forward to hearing from you about what worked and what didn’t. I’ll have another post in August for everyone to share results and tips. In the meantime, it is time to relax and take it easy. I hope you enjoy the summer!
