JLPT

I'm interested in doing JLPT next year. But I wanna go straight to lvl 2. I should be doing it this year, but I'm a bit lazy and I'm a bit scared of it.

This are the stats that anki gives to me:

Kanji statistics

The 1082 seen cards in this deck contain:

  • 849 total unique kanji.
  • Jouyou: 807 of 1945 (41.5%).
  • Jinmeiyou: 13 of 287 (4.5%).
  • 29 non-jouyou kanji.

Jouyou levels:

  • Grade 1: 73 of 80 (91.3%).
  • Grade 2: 151 of 160 (94.4%).
  • Grade 3: 142 of 200 (71.0%).
  • Grade 4: 119 of 200 (59.5%).
  • Grade 5: 78 of 185 (42.2%).
  • Grade 6: 73 of 181 (40.3%).
  • JuniorHS: 171 of 939 (18.2%).
I'm searching for past tests for JLPT but I only found this page: http://www.mlcjapanese.co.jp/LevelCheck/PT/01.htm

If I follow it, I'd pass lvl 3 for sure and would only get 40-50% in lvl 2. The passing mark of lvl 2 is 60%. That is making me wonder if I'm just being a chicken.

The 40-50% mark looked too close to the 41.5% mark of anki to be a lie. I'll redo this test in a month to see if I get a better score.

That's awesome! How many sentences do you do a day? I've personally been averaging around 40 or so these past few days.

My stats:

252 total unique kanji.
Jouyou: 245 of 1945 (12.6%).
Jinmeiyou: 0 of 287 (0.0%).
7 non-jouyou kanji.
