When you buy a JLPT workbook — or take a practice quiz online — how often do you “cheat” by replaying the tracks and stalling time? There are many JLPT N5 mock tests online, but none of them give you the feeling of what the real test will actually be like.

With our practice test, each section is timed and integrated with audio. This pushes you to move on to the next question, mimicking real-life JLPT. 

Here’s What You’ll Get from Coto’s JLPT N5 Mock Test

You won’t make real progress when there’s the opportunity for you to “cheat”. You listen to the listening CD three to four times when it should have been only twice. You don’t record your time because you thought: “As long as I finish the questions, it means I’ll be fine on the test.”

When it comes to true practice, it’s best to set down and treat sample questions as if you are taking the JLPT test for real. So how did we design an online JLPT N5 sample quiz that’s the closest thing to the actual test?

1. Timed quiz sections

Each JLPT section is timed: vocabulary (20 minutes), grammar-reading (40 minutes) and listening (30 minutes). Many test-takers fall into the pit hole of miscalculating their pace — and end up submitting their JLPT answers unfinished.

Even if JLPT N5 is divided into three parts. Each section is timed separately. For example, even if you finish vocabulary 10 minutes earlier, you will need to wait for another 10 minutes to move on to grammar reading. Our JLPT N5 mock test is timed, allowing you to get a good feel for how fast you need to complete each section. 

  • JLPT N5 Mock Test: Vocabulary (文字語彙) 25 minutes
  • JLPT N5 Mock Test: Grammar (文法・読解) 50 minutes
  • JLPT N5 Mock Test: Reading (文法・読解) 50 minutes
  • JLPT N5 Mock Test: Listening (聴解) 30 minutes

2. The same number of questions as the real JLPT N5

Besides knowing the level-appropriate Japanese vocabulary, and reading and listening skills, you will also need to be familiar with the length of the test. Our JLPT N5 practice test covers all sections — with the same number of questions.

No “samples” or sections with only 5 questions.

3. Visual cues for listening questions

The listening section is completed with illustrations — exactly like what you will encounter during the test day.
