It’s unbelievable and I’m not sure how it’s possible but here are the results as they read on my Japanese Language Proficiency 2004 certificate:

Writing/Vocabulary, 75/100
Listening, 93/100
Reading/Grammar 115/200

合格 (Passed)

I hope all of you got the results you wanted – if you’re not shy then please tell us how you did.


  1. Wow! Congratulations!
    It’s great to hear that you passed 😛
    I haven’t received my results yet 🙁
    But when i do, I’ll post my results.

  2. Congratulations! I passed 3 kyu. 🙂

  3. Well done! I haven’t yet my results, I’ll post when they will arrive. Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations Darren and Andy!

  5. Well done Andy!
    Tim & Toki, I’ve got my fingers crossed for you =)
    Thanks as always, Charmaine.

  6. Congratulations man! Did working on this site help much? And are you gonna go for 1kyu next year? Good luck!

  7. Hi everyone,
    I finally got my results today.
    Writing/Vocabulary, 82/100
    Listening, 74/100
    Reading/Grammar 121/200
    277/400 合格 (Passed)

  8. By the way, for those that didn’t know i did 2 kyuu.

  9. That’s great Tim. What a relief, eh.
    Adamu – I think this site has helped, more in way of motivation than anything. Getting through the grammar points and learning common kanji compound words along the way was the way I passed.
    At the moment I don’t think I’ll be up to trying 1 kyu, but then again…

  10. Anyone have any thoughts about whether they’ll attempt the test again this December?

  11. Yeah, i’m definately gonna take 1 kyuu this year :P.
    Already studying for it. 😛
    I reckon you should do it too Darren. I think just the process of preparing for it will help you improve heaps regardless of whether you pass or not.
    I reckon you can do it. :).
    I think the most important thing is to keep practicing all the time.. if you leave it to next year, i guess you will get a bit slack and you won’t improve as fast.
    Well thats my excuse anyhows. 😛
    Lemme know what you think.

  12. Hello, my name is Chris, I’m from Hong Kong. Congrats on your jlpt results=)
    I came across your site and thought I’d as you a question i wanted to know the answer to… how long does it take a person normally to reach the JLPT at Level 2 ? I just passed the jlpt 3 for this Dec 2004. I was wondering how long it will probably take me from now on . thanks

  13. Hi Chris. Are you still in Hong Kong? If you are in Japan then things would be easier. As a guide, I passed 2 kyu the year after passing 3 kyu and that was without constant study throughout the year. However, like I said, being in Japan gives you constant study whether you like it or not! Good luck.
