Can you take the JLPT test online?

Postby chonnyfonny696924 » September 22nd, 2013 10:00 pm

The JLPT Will not be hosted in any university in my city in Australia. Is there a possiblilty they might be able to do one online?
I'm seriously thinking about taking this test this year, I just don't want to pay for flights to bigger cities :(
If I have I might...
thanks

99% sure you must take it at a designated testing center.

I agree. Apart from anything else, it would be very difficult to prevent cheating with an online test. You could sit there using Google Translate or textbooks and dictionaries, or you could have somebody with you to help you.

I don't mean to suggest that you would cheat, just that it'd be very difficult to prevent someone from cheating if they wanted to.

chonnyfonny696924-san, Valeriedreid6207-san, マイケルsan,
unfortunately it's a paper base test.
I don't know which city you're in, but there're 5 or 6 cities in Australia where you can take
the exam. Hopefully, one of them is near to your place :)
