This was the first chance in 2019 for you to take the JLPT. This test is generally conducted at fewer sites than the main December test, but if you live in a big city or in most of Asia, you should have been able to have a chance at this one. I hope the weather treated you well. It can sometimes be very hot and humid at test locations.
A year ago, I let everyone know that I’ve been working on the JLPT Study Guide for the N5. At that time, I was fairly confident that we would be able to get it out at the end of last year. Well, it took yet another 8 months to refine everything and get the whole book edited and ready to print. It has been a lengthy process to say the least, but I’m glad we spent so long on it, because it will be a fabulous all-inclusive book once it arrives.
I hope that your studies have really been paying off as well. How did the JLPT treat you this time? I’d like to know in the comments what your experiences were. Where did you take the test? What level did you take? Were there any tough questions that stuck out? This is a great opportunity to share your studies and help out some of the other students studying for the exam, so be sure to leave me a comment below.
Generally speaking, results are usually available starting the second to last Tuesday of August (the 20th). If you registered for the test online in Japan, you’ll be able to see the results after the stroke of midnight on the 19th. If you registered to take the test in other locations, the results become available online around Thursday. Your certificates are then mailed out the following week, so they will probably arrive late August or early September depending on where you took the test.
Take a moment now to share your experience with the test below, I’d love to hear from you all!
