Just for the record.
Heh. Maybe I should scan the "certificate" they sent me and post it. (Use the Gimp to wipe out the private information. Hahahahahahahah. What use would that be, other than to show the world what it looks like. Maybe not. I'm not sure the testing company would appreciate it. I had to sign an NDA to take the test. Seriously.)
It took about two and a half months to find out, from December 6th to Feb 14th. (Hah? Valentine's day? Did it realy come that day?)
I thought I had maybe just barely passed it. But my score turned out to be, by the curve, a B grade. Not bad for my first and last JLPT certification.
Oh. I went for the top level, level N1, just because I was too impatient. So there's nowhere left to go but the Nihongo Kentei.
Which may not be a bad idea, but I'm going to try to get the LPIC levels 1 and 2 first. Studying for it seems to be a good way to fill in the gaps in my sysad knowledge.
