Not to discourage starters out there.
Do study hard and exam results are not the end of the world.

Do reflect and see which area is strong and weak and where to improve on after this exam.

For N5 and N4 holders.
From my personal experience, I would not recommend you to go for N3, N2 if you do not get 85~90% for your exam as it means your fundamentals (Grammar, Vocab, Listening, Writing, Speaking, switching between your master language and Japanese language) may not be not strong enough to tackle more advanced levels.

Do polish up ALL your areas especially weaker ones!


Good Luck. Have Fun!
Don't give up. You are not alone.

One thing I learn (additional advantage of knowing Japanese Language and watching Taiga dramas) is that:

"Upon retiring, sleep as if you had entered your last sleep.
Upon awakening, leave your bed behind you instantly as if you had cast away a pair of old shoes."



"The root of suffering is attachment"
