An N4 level gaijin has circled the “N1” option today on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test application form.
The N4 foreigner has no hope of passing but will be able to gloat to friends that they have “taken” the N1 test.
“I’ll be able to say I’ve sat the N1,” said N4 gaijin.
N4 gaijin will likely get somewhere between 20% and 40% because it’s multiple choice.
“I have to try out the N1 eventually so I may as well try now,” the N4 gaijin said in an attempt to justify the decision.
JLPT executives are looking forward to receiving another 5,500 yen.
