JLPT N2 Result 
23rd-Aug-2017 12:33 pm
BL
JLPT N2 Score: July 2nd, 2017

Vocab, Grammar: 27 / 60 (19 to pass)
Reading: 23 / 60 (19 to pass)
Listening: 30 / 60 (19 to pass)
Overall: 80 / 180 (90 to pass)
Reference Grade: B
= I failed by 10 points.

Thoughts: I've already improved so much in the 2 months since I took it that it'd be impossible to fail if I were to take it again in December (also next time I'll bring some kind of medicine so I don't give up halfway through due to eye pain again), but considering what a stressful, huge pain it is I'll only take it again if I can't find a part-time job during my exchange year in Sendai without it. I'm assuming that if I can get a part-time job first, on top of having "Japanese-class grades" I can show to potential full-time employers, the bosses at the part-time workplace can be my references that can "prove" I know Japanese to the full-time even without me having taken the JLPT / having my finished Japanese degree. I don't know what you guys think / know about that.

Unrelated but I also just beat my first game in Japanese (.hack//infection, a PS2 game) where I actually understood what was going on the whole time: I understood nearly 100% of the dialogue, 95% of the in-game forum posts and Emails, 80-90% of the item names/descriptions. So if you're at around N2 level I recommend it (I don't think it's any good for learning from context because there's not enough context clues, but it's good for reviewing — most of it's voice-acted too).

Some day, someday, someday I will take an N-something. After 10 years here people already assume I have taken up to at least N2 but I haven't touched an exam since I graduated Uni! lol
10 points though. Almost there!!

Don't take it if you don't need to, it's a pain in the butt!! I just took it in the hopes of it helping me get a job before my degree is finished.

Yeah, there's no way I'd fail it a second time! I don't know if I should try taking it in December or not, could be useful or could be a huge waste of time (in that it'd be unnecessary for getting me a job)....

Thanks! If my eyes hadn't started hurting so early I might've passed, I don't know (it's not just that I basically stopped reading everything, it's also that since they hurt I was too distracted and couldn't even focus on the listening and stuff). I don't normally blame stuff on me being almost blind but this time it felt really unfair throughout the whole exam, which is part of why I really don't want to take it again if I don't have to lol
