    I woulda passed, but the Mimetic section and the grammar killed me. I've never studied for this test before, but now I can see why. It uses obscure and archaic words and structures that you NEVER see anywhere else.

    No, I'm not bitter.
    60 pc is a 2Q pass I believe?

    Also this is before kanji, listening and other questions which may be where your stronger skills lie - not a bad result at all ...
    Really? After it tallied my score it told me that you need 70% to pass 2kyuu.

So I'd say the grammar test you just did isn't that far down from the 1kyuu one, which I think is SERIOUSLY screwy.
    Yeah, I think I'm gonna head down to the bookstore today and pick up some books to study the grammar. It's not even "grammar" that you need to know, it's really obscure conjunctions and phrases that never see the light of day anywhere else.

    a bit earlier i made myself a little chart on excel with 300 blocks on it.

    each of these represent one hour.

    all of them must be crossed out by the time the JLPT rolls round.

    one of them has just been crossed off.

    yosh!!!
    fucking genki

    Hee, I remember the time I rocked up to eikaiwa and told them I'd been studying for the JLPT. They asked what I'd been studying, and when I told them they were like "We...don't use those..." I've seen some of them pop up in books or in the paper, though...

    I still can't get over how fucking evil 2kyuu grammar is, though. I wouldn't mind so much if it was at least proportionate to the other levels, but it doesn't seem to be much easier than 1kyuu.
