2010-2 JLPT Results Are Coming!

It’s that time again, JETs! The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT; 日本語能力試験) results will be mailed out on 10 Feb. 2011. If you do not receive your results by the 18th, contact the JLPT Information Service at  03-5454-5577.

If you took the N4 or N5, the official JLPT website published the scoring breakdown for the test on 31 January. (This link includes the breakdown for N1-N3 as well, but the passing scores have not changed since the 2010-1 test. Japanese version here.) Remember, you need both the overall passing score AND  the minimum passing score in each section to pass the test. (Read: you must pass all sections to pass the whole test. See this article for an explanation.)

The next exam (2011-1) will be held on Sunday, 3 July 2011 with check-in starting at noon. (Tests end around 16:00-16:30, depending on level). Details from JEES are linked here: (Japanese) (English). All levels will be offered. Registration by mail is from 24 March – 28 April and costs 5,500 yen. Look for a separate post about how to register in Ishikawa in March!
