Register for the JLPT by September 26th 2018

For all of the fellow procrastinators out there, I am sending an emergency beacon.

Here is a quick reminder that the Japanese Language Profiency Test registration closes on September 26th for the test date of December 2nd! Yes, that is more than 2 months notice to register for a test that you may not be thinking about until probably October or November (because you are busy with your studies), when it will be too late. You could break a bone upon registering and then be pretty much healed by the time that you take the test, as doctors typically recommend 6-8 weeks for recovery. Note that this also used to be the expected parcel delivery time for Columbia House CD delivery, when I was in high school, that I have just learned went bankrupt back in 2015.

I have missed maybe 1-2 tests due to this outrageous registration window at this point, resulting in me taking exactly 1 test so far.

Here is the official testing site for registration. Scroll about three quarters down the page to create a test ID and proceed to jump through the various hoops. One of which gave me a good morning chuckle.

This is the photo guideline on the test registration site. It should be mandated for all dating apps but include examples of augmented reality, drawing over eyes and face, and multiple people.

On my original registration for the N5 test I was topless except for earphones. Wearing clothes is not in the guideline.

Note that I wasn’t able to upload a photo using Brave and Safari web browsers on the Mac; Firefox did the trick.
