Had the urge to make my autumn miserable this summer and relive some of my matriculation examination moments and took the JLPT N4 test today. Anyone else done anything similar? Joking aside I wanted to see where I'm at and I'm rather happy that I did. I'm pretty positive that I didn't bomb this one. Vocabulary and listening weren't difficult. Grammar is my eternal enemy (especially when done like this) and I'm pretty sure I made quite a few mistakes there. Thanks to that I had less time in reading section which wasn't that optimal. About the listening test... It's funny, when there's a clearly wrong option someone just "hmphs" a bit technically giving away what is definitely not a correct choice. When I was in upper secondary school I honestly didn't know what studying actually is. I did the bare minimum (read to test day before). It worked pretty well in for each period but in matriculation examination things backfired badly. I didn't fail but everything else except English was far from perfect results wise. This time things were different and I kinda also wanted to see what I can do with self studying. I consider this a hobby of mine.
