7 study tips for the JLPT exam

Tip 1 - Prepare specifically for the JLPT

This is probably the most important tip of all. When the student chooses the level he will take, he must also focus on the subjects of that specific level. In addition, it is important to search for subjects by categories such as: Kanji, Vocabulary, Grammar, Reading and Listening. Finally, it is recommended, as a precaution, to be aware of the content of previous levels (if you subscribe to N4, for example, you will need to know the content of N5 and so on).

Tip 2 - Do simulations and test questions

It doesn't do much good to study all the theory and not put into practice the acquired knowledge. Ask as many questions as you can. In addition to increasing your confidence, it will greatly increase your chance of approval. Not to mention that there are questions with very peculiar structures and that if they are not trained beforehand, they can become even more difficult to solve.

Tip 3 - Study through classes on YouTube

There are several channels on YouTube that teach the content of the Proficiency Exam. We recommend that you watch Japanese channels so that you can practice listening while studying vocabulary and grammar. In artigo from the following link, you can (if you want) check out which are the main ones: YouTube channels to study for the JLPT.

Tip 4 - Make notes and summaries

Make summaries, write down the kanji and, if possible, write everything by hand. Some research suggests that handwriting substantially increases memory capacity. Use different colored pens, make schematic drawings and have fun in the process.

Tip 5 - Use good books and good sources

use the books "Nihongo I'm Matome" and "Shin Kanzen Master" of the required level. In my opinion, these are the best two to pass the JLPT. We also recommend the "TRY!" series of books. Suki Desu's artigos should also help you in this regard. Go to the site's search bar and type "JLPT".

Tip 6 - Keep calm during the exam

It's quite possible that you're nervous during the test, either because you thought you got a question wrong or thought you didn't have time to answer it. In these moments of difficulty, take a deep breath and move on. Focus on the question and be confident when answering.

Tip 7 - Watch out for the question of time

The test is usually divided into interspersed sessions. Therefore, there is a time limit between each of the exam steps. Stay tuned! Mainly in the listening comprehension part.

* Extra tip: Eat properly before the exam. Choose light and healthy foods (this tip goes for practically any test, even ENEM).
