Can you believe I am still working my way through the test paper I was talking about in my last post? I had forgotten just how long it takes to go through a paper thoroughly.
Interestingly enough, when I gave myself the extra time to look at the reading sections I didn’t have time to attempt, I was surprised that I could understand a fair few of them. I still got many of the answers wrong, but at least I had some idea of what was going on.
If I had 2 hours to do the reading/grammar paper my score would improve by at least 10-15%!
So, my problem is reading speed which is mostly due to guessing the meaning of kanji I don’t know. Unsurprisingly, I did badly at the vocab/kanji paper. So, in the remaining couple of weeks I have to speed up my reading and learn as many kanji as possible.
