Okay, so this year after much debate, I have finally decided to take all the JLPT levels from the very beginning.
So, I have signed up for the N5 (Basic level) exam. Since I have started over with my studies and have never taken this test before; I thought “why not also start from the beginning with the exams as well?”
I also have a sort of “anxiety” when it comes to tests ever since high school. I just want to make sure that I know my stuff rather than making a guess to my answers.
I never taken an exam that lasts more than 2 hours before and that in itself seems a little intimidating.
I have high hopes that once I complete the N5 test, I will have some experience that will make me not as nervous when I plan to take the N4 test next year in December 2012.
I admit, these days I have had barely anytime to study Japanese. But I feel good knowing that from this point until December 4th, the only thing I would have to focus on is the review for the material that may appear on the N5 exam.
I’m still a little nervous but once I get a chance to review more of the kanji-based vocabulary that may appear on the exam, I may feel a little more prepared.
I will keep you all up-to-date with my progress. And of course, I will share the results of my test and my experience once the test is done in December. I look very forward to this mini-milestone in my Japanese studies.
