Had a surge of enthusiasm this morning when I realised you only need 30% in the listening section to pass, which is almost doable by random guessing, only to have that enthusiasm wither once more when I actually attempted some of the listening sample questions…
Yeah. I’ll put in my best effort, naturally, but I kinda think this year’s going to be a lost cause. Guess I’ll just accept it and move on – then buy the kanji and vocab study books and start studying for next year earlier.
I’m going to give it a shot, too. I’m a bit terrified, as my grammar and listening lag a bit behind. I’m trying to cram vocabulary from a list for N3 and listen to various things a lot through the day.
I don’t know if this has been posted here, but this is a great resource for some free listening practice.
