MyJLPT: How to Check Your Results for The JLPT December 2022

For Japanese language students who took the JLPT in July 2022, otsukare sama deshita! We’re proud that you took it and did your best. Now, the JLPT results are available online around two months after the test day. The online test result announcement will be viewable for only a certain duration. With that, we thought to give you a step-by-step guide on how to check your results for the JLPT.

Keep in mind that due to traffic, there may be a delay in connection during the announcement date.

For international residents in Japan, the physical result certificate will be delivered on a specific date. You can also issue a transcript, which will be immediately sent after the resulting certificate is received. Students who are in a hurry to get the transcript may apply for an express delivery request.

For more information and updates, kindly refer to the official JLPT website.

If you’re planning to take (or re-take) the JLPT, let’s study together! Coto Academy offers online JLPT Prep lectures and in-person JLPT Prep courses. You can contact us at [email protected] or visit our contact page for a free Japanese level check and consultation.

Things to Note:

If your test results are not displayed on the ‘Test Result and Certificate Issuance’ screen, do note that they only display results for tests applied using your MyJLPT ID. Tests taken before 2012, overseas, or applied by mail will not have their results displayed. If the test was applied with another MyJLPT ID or applied using block registration by the group representative, results will also not be displayed.

If you wish to change the address the results will be sent, you may do so during a specific time frame after the test. After every JLPT test, the time period where changes are accepted will be displayed on the MyJLPT website. For December 2021 JLPT, students can change their address from 6 December to 24 December 2021. Changes can be made on the ‘Check and Modify applicants’ information’ page. If you require a change after the time period is over, you will have to mail your updated information to the post office.

What is The Score Required to Pass the JLPT?

For JLPT N1 to N5, the range of scores one can get is between 0 and 180 points. Depending on your level, the passing scores also change accordingly.

JLPT LevelPassing marks (Total)
N580 out of 180
N490 points out of 180
N395 points out of 180
N290 points out of 180
N1100 points out of 180

There are also score requirements for individual sections of the test.

For N5 and N4, the sectional passing mark for Listening is 19 points out of 60 points. The passing mark for Language Knowledge (Vocabulary/Grammar) and Reading is 38 points out of 120 points.

For N3, N2, and N1, the sectional passing mark for Language Knowledge (Vocabulary/Grammar), Reading and Listening is 19 points out of 60 points for every section.

Should examinees not meet the required passing mark for any of the sections, they will be deemed to have failed the entire exam. Should they miss out on a test section, they will also not be able to pass. On the score report, no score result will show for the test sections that were completed.
