The JLPT is a test for non-native speakers of Japanese which evaluates and certifies their Japanese-language proficiency. The test is simultaneously conducted twice a year in Japan and various locations overseas. Since JLPT began in 1984, the cumulative number of examinees in Japan and overseas has reached 12,720,000 until the rest in December 2020. Currently, it is the largest Japanese language test in the world.
JLPT certification offers various advantages. In Japan, the JLPT is taken into consideration for preferential immigration treatment as well as an eligibility for various national exams. Outside Japan, it is widely used as school credits, graduation certification, job screening and promotion, as well as for a variety of national qualifications.
