There is one more way of accessing the Question Papers. Use the following link:

https://jlpt.mobi/jlpt/jlptexamine.do?year=1993&level=2

Replace the year and level number with the year and level you want. 馃榾

Solving the previous year papers is very helpful in getting a good score in JLPT and testing our knowledge of the Japanese Language.

Hi Joshua,
Sadly most sites that hosted the JLPT old question papers have either stopped operating or taken down the links.
After the arrival of new test pattern in 2011 i.e. Level 4, 3, 2, 1 to >> N1, N2, N3, N4 and N5, the question format changed too and some of them thought that the old 1991-2005 question paper sets were not relevant anymore.

I am in touch with a few folks who might be in possession of the question papers. I will upload them once I get my hand on it.
Could you share what JLPT level you are appearing for? So that I can find the relevant papers.

JLPT level 3 (N4) 2005 past test
JLPT level 3 (N4) 2006 past test

I believe they will be good practice. I couldn't find a way to download them and re-upload them here for safe-keeping. But if you do, please upload the papers here for other people's convenience.

All the best with you studies. I am gearing up for Level N2 this year. 馃榾

Answers here:




As far as the JLPT N5 past papers are concerned, I think they aren't yet made available in the last few years. What you can do instead is go for the Level 4 (previous format) papers and try solving them.

Good for JLPT N5 vocabulary and grammar. I don't have them, but I have some practice questions. I'll upload those PDFs.

I was reading this thread and I just wanted to warn the people taking N2. N2 is considerably harder than then old 2绱 exam. You can use the previous exams to study but just be warned, the test is harder than those previous exams. Just a heads up! Having said that, the cut off mark is lower, I believe it is only 50%, it use to be 60 or 65.

If anyone finds exams after 2010, please let me know!

@Lazar No, the JLPT authorities don't release the test papers to the public. Not sure why they do that.

However, if you have taken the JLPT Exam N5 to N1, you will know that it's practically impossible to reproduce the questions once you come out of the examination hall.

But guess what, the material available online in the form of official JLPT books is enough if you can practice it well. The old question papers posted here:聽https://www.crazyengineers.com/downloads/jlpt-level-1-to-4-old-question-papers-for-practice-1991-1999.247/ are in fact quite on the difficult side, so if you practice these well, you can easily crack the much easier JLPT levels N5, N4, N3.

When I took the JLPT N2 exam, these old Level 1 to Level 4 papers of great help for the vocabulary and grammar questions.

Top books for preparing JLPT that I recommend are:

  1. Shin Kanzen Master (N5 to N1)
  2. Nihongo Challenge (N5 to N1)
