FAQs

For Registration 

Can I register after the application deadline?

No, you cannot. Strictly no late applications will be accepted.

I am a parent/guardian/teacher. Can I register for my child/student on behalf of him/her?

Yes, you can. Take care to fill in your child’s name and details in the main section of the application form. Sometimes a parent will incorrectly fill in their own name as the examinee!

TIP: A teacher or parent can supply their own email address in lieu of that of their student or child. Most communication from JLPT organisers occurs via email. For security and privacy we will ONLY communicate with the email address as matching on the application form. If you supply your student or child’s personal email address then we will be unable to discuss inquiries originating from your email address.

I am a parent/guardian/teacher. Can I make group registration for my children/students?

Unfortunately this is not supported. The application form gathers information on the basis of individual examinees and so separate registration for each child is required.
