JLPT Pass Rate Statistics 2014

Below are some tables which include the pass rate data and statistics for the 2014 Japanese Language Proficiency Test. This data was taken from from the official JLPT website, but organized and reformatted to be a bit easier to see and use.

Note that percentage qualified = pass rate. This is calculated by [certified] / [examinees], NOT by [certified] / [applicants], since not everyone who applied actually took the test..
