I applied for the MEXT scholarship this year and I take the exams this Wednesday in Australia, I have to take a 1 hour English exam, 2 hour Japanese exam and a 1 hour mathematics exam, and I'm FREAKING OUT because the maths exam is WAY above what I've been learning in school and even though I've been officially learning Beginner's Japanese since last year, MY JAPANESE IS STILL SO HORRIBLE and I'm terrified that I'm not going to get accepted because of my terrible maths and Japanese skills ;__: (I applied to study a bachelors of primary education) Reply S B says: July 4, 2018 at 9:02 pm What if you're just wanting to go to a Japanese university without the scholarship? I have a decent level of Japanese already and since tuition is cheaper (even with housing) in Japan, it's really not an issue. I am guessing you would just apply directly to that school?

So I dropped out of high school my senior year but completed the rest of my high school education through a GED or in my case, a HiSET diploma which looks the same as a high school diploma. Would Japanese colleges still accept me if my resume looks good, I've done a lot of volunteer work etc and got a high score on my HiSET test? Same question applies for the MEXT scholarship..

Reply helder simoes says: April 4, 2019 at 2:55 am konnichiwa Kem chan, I really love the fact that you start your videos with a full japanese prologue, makes me love them more, because I love the language that is. so I am basically rewatching this video, since I last did in 2017 when I made my first attempt to apply for a scholarship for undergrad programs, but failed for poor language proficiency by then. I was really shocked, because I always heard that there were all-english programs but the embassy (of my home country, Angola) told me after an awekward phone call interview that I had to be really really fluent in japanese. So I had no choice but to enroll in a local institution. But I wont give up just yet, japan is a childhood dream for me, I will apply for a postgraduate program once I am done in 2 years, hopefully I master my nihongo by then <3. Thanks for keeping me motivated. Reply Arekun says: April 6, 2019 at 4:14 pm I got the mext scholarship for "specialized training college" and lived 3 years in Japan, then I went back home to go to uni but now I kinda wanna apply to mext again for my masters xD but it's weird for masters, you have to contact professors? so confusing lol, I guess I need to do more research about graduate studies in general xP Reply Rizu Chan says: April 8, 2019 at 9:50 am I am 18 years old. I am currently a highschool senior and I am aiming for the MEXT scholarship undergraduate. I have been studying Japanese for about 6 years. I took the JLPT and passed the N4. I won speech competitions in Japanese for 2 consecutive years, 1st place in the highschool division in my Junior year, and 2nd place in college level 5. I never took AP classes and my SAT score is 1260 and my GPA is a 4.0 weighted and 3.6 unweighted. I'm in 5 different clubs, I lead one of them. Do I have any chances of getting the scholarship? I wanna go to Japan for 5 full years and maybe 6 or 7, I want to get my masters degree. I'm scared to death.
