6. The Day of the Test
Q37 I have made an application to the JLPT but now I cannot take it. What should I do?
There is no need for you to contact us for your absence on the test day. However, once application is made, we do not refund already paid test fee.
Q38 On the day of the test, can I go to the test site by car?
Do not arrive at your test site by car, motorcycle or bicycle. Use public transportation(train, bus, etc.) to come to the test site.
You are not allowed to use the parking space of the test sites or free parking spaces or bicycle parking spaces around the test sites.
If a disturbance is caused at or near the test site due to drop off / pick up buses or cars, and/or illegal parking, the applicants may not be allowed to take the test. (Test fees will not be refused in this case.) The test site does not provide parking information.
Q39 What is the assembly time?
Please enter the test room between 12:00 and 12:30 p.m.
Q40 What happens if I am late?
Regardless of the reason, if you do not enter the test room by 12:30 p.m. you will not be able to take the first test section. You will be able to take the following test sections, but they will not be graded and you will not pass. In addition, you will not be allowed to enter the test room once test hours have begun for any test section.
Q41 May I use a ball-point pen to write answers?
No, you may not. Answers written by ball-point pens will not be scored. Please use a black HB-graded pencil or mechanical pencil.
Q42 I have influenza. What should I do ?
Whether you are diagnosed or not yet diagnosed by a doctor but suspected of influenza and other infectious diseases stated in the Regulations on the School Health and Safety. Act,
please refrain from taking the test. There is no need to report to us. Please note that there will be no test fee refund or reexamination.
