general questions from a stressing student
« on: September 03, 2020, 12:28:12 am »

Hey, i'm wondering what i would need in the exam, especially the oral for a:
40+?
45+?
I'm trying to grind out exams but i think i can realistically only get a max of 90%. i'm a bit scared, because it's very competitive and lost marks can tank your study score so much
For the orals, what score do i need? i've finished my scripts and remembered most of my gc and haven't started remembering my ds.
i've got a mid 80% average at a pretty good school, so i'm hoping my exam scores drag up my sacs.
For the listening section, when writing jap--> jap do i need to change the grammar?
i'm grinding past exams with scores ranging from about 62 - 68 out of 70 so far, so i'm hoping to further fine tune skills.
what are traps to look out for in the exam?

cheers

Anything above 40 for the oral you're looking at the very least above 90%. Don't worry though, above 90% is definitely attainable if you practice a lot and really fit in those fat grammar patterns. The oral is in all honesty not worth very much compared to the written, so you can make up for it if you tank it. I can't stress this enough, but you need to practice though. Make sure your teacher/tutor can give you curveballs and really hard unique questions. My tutor actually asked me one that was the exact same as the real exam a day before, I think it was like 'what are the differences between Japanese and Australian schools?' in my GC. It's best if you don't word for word copy the reading comp in your answers. Learn to paraphrase. For listening though, you should be good with copying.
