But the point of the test is to determine who is skilled and who is not, so it *should* be tough.

Exactly, I actually think that 1kyuu has gotten to be kind of a joke (or maybe it always was, and I just didn't notice). The proof is that I was able to pass it, and I would never even hazard to regard myself as fluent. :/

I still want to take the JETRO (they renamed it to something else lately) because apparently it's much harder than the JLPT at the higher levels.

Along with my yearly ritual of getting a JLPT application and never sending it in, I also sometimes add an unsent application for the BJT (formerly JETRO), and/or the J-TEST.
