HELP! filled in JLPT application wrongly!

Postby keymistress » Tue 08.08.2006 7:38 am

i was kinda flustered when filling in the 'number of hours studied' for my JLPT 4 application. when i got home i realised i had circled the wrong number: 1 = <100 hours! i wanted to circle 2!

does anybody know if this figure is just for statistical purposes or will they look at it when grading my paper? *worried*

should i go back and amend my application?

secondly, i am also wondering if i should take JLPT 4 or 3... sigh... i'm pretty sure i can pass JLPT 4 with a bit of revision but since there's still about 3 months+++ to go before the test, will i make it in time to take JLPT 3? :(

Its just for statistics.
If you think that you have even a little chance I would go for level 3. Level 4 is a bit pointless really.

You applied but didn't select the level yet? :o Are you sure the "hours studied" wasn't the actual level selection?

He's applied for 4.

If he changes his mind as applies again for 3 I suppose it's vaguely possible he might be able to get the money back on the first application but I'm doubtful.

I'd say shoot for 3!!! I mean, what do you really have to lose if you happen to fail 3? And as you said, there is still 3 months left. You could surely study a bit more until then.

I've never taken the JLPT for 4 or 3; however, if the price for 3 is greater than 4, there will be no refund if any sort. That much I know.

I don't see how it's pointless. It's a benchmark, and it helps.

Helps what?

With the exception of 1, they're all pretty pointless.
