Japanese Language Proficiency Test 3

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (日本語能力試験 Nihongo Nōryoku Shiken), or JLPT, is a standardized
criterion-referenced test to evaluate and certify the Japanese language proficiency of non-native speakers. It is held
twice a year in East Asia and once a year in other regions.[3] The JLPT now has five levels, with Level N5 the most
basic and Level N1 the most difficult. From 1984 to 2009 the test had 4 levels, with Level 4 the most basic and Level
1 the most difficult – see kyū. But a new level was inserted between 2 and 3, meaning N5 corresponds to the old
Level 4. The Japan Foundation estimates that approximately 150 hours of study were necessary to pass the Level 4
exam and 900 hours of study were required to pass the Level 1 test,[4] although the figures may be significantly
higher for native English speakers. In 2008, the Japanese government announced a plan under consideration to use
the JLPT to screen applicants for long-term and permanent resident visas.[5] The test is held on the first Sunday of
July and December each year.

History and statistics


The JLPT was first held in 1984 in response to growing demand for standardized Japanese language certification.[6]
Initially 7,000 people took the test.[7] Until 2003, the JLPT was one of the requirements for foreigners entering
Japanese universities. Since 2003, the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students
(EJU) is used by most universities for this purpose;[8] unlike the JLPT, which is solely a multiple-choice exam, the
EJU contains sections which require the examinee to write in Japanese.
In 2004, the JLPT was offered in 40 countries, including Japan. Of the 302,198 examinees in that year, 47% (around
140,000) were certified for their respective level.[9] The number of candidates continued to rise to 559,056 in 2008,
while the percentage of candidates certified has fallen below 36%. In 2009, when a revised system was introduced in
which two exams are held each year in East Asia, a total of 768,114 people took the exam.[10]

Administration
In Japan, the JLPT is administered by the Ministry of Education[11] through the Japan Educational Exchanges and
Services (JEES). Overseas, the Japan Foundation co-proctors test administration with local cultural exchange and/or
educational institutions, or with committees specially established for this purpose.[12] [13]

Revised test
A revised test pattern, originally scheduled to be implemented from December 2009, has been postponed until 2010.
The revised test will consist of five levels: N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5, with N1 being the highest level and N5 the
easiest. This has been done to address the problem of the difficulty gap between level 3 to 2.
In the past there have been requests for revisions to address the fact that examinees who have passed the Level 3 test
often have trouble with passing the Level 2 test because of the large gap in those two levels, as well as to address the
need to measure abilities more advanced than those targeted by the current Level 1 test.[14]
• N1: the same passing level as the original level 1, but able to gauge slightly more advanced skills, possibly
through equating of test scores[15]
• N2: the same as the original level 2
• N3: in between the original level 2 and level 3
• N4: the same as the original level 3
• N5: the same as the original level 4
The revised test will continue to test the same categories as the original, but the first and third sections of the test will
be combined into a single section.[16] Sections on oral and writing skills will not be introduced.[7]
No Test Content Specification will be published as it is discouraged to study from kanji and vocabulary lists. Only
the pass marks for the N1-N3 tests have so far been announced, and the pass marks for N4-N5 are to be released in
March 2011. [17]

Application period

until late September for December's examination.

Previous format (1984-2009)


All instructions on the test are written in Japanese, although their difficulty is adjusted to remain appropriate to each
test level.[24] The subject matter covered at each level of the examination is based upon the Test Content
Specification (出題基準 Shutsudai kijun), first published in 1994 and revised in 2004. This specification serves as a
reference for examiners to compile test questions, rather than as a study guide for candidates. It consists of kanji
lists, expression lists, vocabulary lists, and grammar lists for all five JLPT levels. However, about 20% of the kanji,
vocabulary, and grammar in any one exam may be drawn from outside the prescribed lists at the discretion of exam
compilers.[25]

Test content summary


Level Kanji Vocabulary Listening Hours of Study Pass Mark

4 ~100 (103) ~800 (728) Beginner 150 (estimated) 60%

3 ~300 (284) ~1,500 (1409) Basic 300 (estimated)

2 ~1000 (1023) ~6,000 (5035) Intermediate 600 (estimated)

1 ~2000 (1926) ~10,000 (8009) Advanced 900 (estimated) 70%

Test sections
The JLPT is divided into three sections: "Characters and Vocabulary" (100 points), "Listening Comprehension" (100
points), and "Reading Comprehension and Grammar" (200 points).
The first section (文字・語彙, moji, goi) tests knowledge of vocabulary and various aspects of the Japanese writing
system. This includes identifying the correct kanji characters for given situations, selecting the correct hiragana
readings for given kanji, choosing the appropriate terms for given sentences, and choosing the appropriate usage of
given words.
The second section (聴解, chōkai) comprises two sub-sections that test listening comprehension. The first involves
choosing the picture which best represents the situation presented by a prerecorded conversation. The second is of a
similar format but presents no visual clues.
Japanese Language Proficiency Test 6

Section three (読解・文法, dokkai, bunpō) uses authentic or semi-authentic reading passages of various lengths to
test reading comprehension. Questions include prompts to fill in blank parts of the text and requests to paraphrase
key points. Grammar questions request that examinees select the correct grammar structure to convey a given point
or test conjugations and postpositional particle agreement.
