What Happens on JLPT Test Day
It’s your big test day!
Before you go to the test center, be sure to bring your test voucher, writing utensils (you can use a mechanical pencil), and a snack and a watch to help you keep track of time.
For Japanese test takers, the test will start at 12:30, but the test center is already open at 11:45. For your safety, it is recommended that you leave early.
Upon arrival at the test center, you will be asked to present your test voucher to the staff. Test takers will be placed in different rooms based on their voucher number. You will be asked to enter one of these rooms.
Once you find a room and enter, you will find a desk with your number on it. You will be given instructions by the staff and when the time is up, you will begin the exam.
The entire exam will take several hours to complete, with short breaks between each section. When the test is over, you need to wait until all the test papers have been collected before leaving the room.
The process at overseas test centers may be different.
I hope you find this guide to passing the JLPT exam helpful. I also wish you good luck in your studies.
