I recently realized that statistics for the 2006 JLPT are now available online, so now I can compare my scores to everyone else! I'm definitely happy with my scores, but seeing them in this light makes me feel even better. For Vocabulary & Kanji, the average score was 73.3, and I scored 93. For Listening, the average score was 53.2, and I scored 76 (I was interested to see if everyone else had the same trouble I did with this section, and it appears so!). For Grammar & Reading, the average score was 131.6, and I scored 186. Finally, the average total score was 258.2, nearly 100 points lower than my score of 355. (By the way, 55,957 people took the test worldwide, which is amazing!) Not bad, but I'm actually shooting to do even better on Level 3 in December!
