  • Hmm… so busy… can’t really catch a breath nowadays..

    Was busy in work.. esp busy as there are reviews and also preparation for my biz trip next week… lots to prepare to make the biz trip effective and efficient…. Need also to prepare clothing as it will freezing over there… No time .. No time…. *heart beating fast*

    Yet at the same time, my heart cannot be totally there in work.. as I also need to prepare for my JLPT3 paper!! I just can’t seem to juggle well… *double Sigh*

    Yes .. IT IS COMING!!!!!!!!!1 This sunday (07.12.2008) will be my fate day.. *gulp*

    I really feel that I will fail this paper.. and it is not surprising coz firstly I will so stupid to understand the qs, and even in 2007, the passing rate is only 63%!! My fate will be like these 488 that failed the JLPT3 paper last year… Oh God… *sobs*

    Been trying to study these few weeks, but concentration level is really low.. and now the day is coming… concentration & seriousness is coming back .. but alas…. ‘jikan ga arimasen’ (no time)…. -___-“”

    I tried JLPT3 paper 2007 last night to test myself and prepare for the big day..

    My Kanji sucks, scoring like 12/20 in first section. Need to buck up on this. My vocabs is worse! I score badly for my section 3, 4 and 5 for the Writing/Vocabulary paper. So total 39/75 = 52/100! Dieeee… Time is no problem for me, I managed to do this paper within 35 min time frame, coz mostly just ‘tickam’ (guess) here and there… hahaa >.<

    As for my Listening paper, I always score 5/12 and 5/11 for both section respectively. Or even worse. So best score I can get is 43/100 for this. Time frame of 35mins should not be a problem also, as it is either u listen and understand or not..

    As for the Reading/Grammar,  This will be my crucial paper, that determine if I can pass my JLPT3 or not, since Listening and Writing/Vocabulary papers are normally suicidal (can’t count on them!). My particle section (Section1) is quite strong with 26/30 (2 incorrect), Form section (Section 2) is not very good (16/30), section 3 is is also half-past six (8/16). I should be proudthat i scored full marks in section 4, 5 and 6 (and I think I need to score such in order to pass!!). And that gives me 93/119 = 156/200! Not the best score.. Again. timing of 70mins seems ok also.

    Total add up: 251/400 , that gives me 62.75%!


    I am very sianz as I noted down somewhere from my teacher that I need 70% to pass for my JLPT3! *double gulp*

    I really feel like NOT going for my JLPT3 paper this sunday..




    Wait a minute, I think passing rate is 60% for JLPT3?? Is it true?? I later saw this info from the JLPT registration phamplet… Passing marks for JLPT2/3/4 are 60% and above, while passing marks for JLPT1 is 70% & above…

    Can anyone tell me & confirm with me…. which is true??

    if it is 60%, i may still have slight chance.. and if yes, I shall go for it…

    God, pls give me the concentration to study, the brain to absorb everything, the wisdom to answer all my questions correctly, the courage to go through my JLPT3 and the mercy to pass my JLPT3.

    Thank you Lord!
