My results from last November

Listening - 44
Vocab - 73
Grammar - 79
Reading - 49
Total - 245

Quite an interesting gap between listening/reading and Vocab/Grammar. I've been trying to go all out with native material (reading, watching youtube vids), especially recently, so I feel like it'll have evened out a bit when I take it again.

I was expecting to get basically the same score so I'm really surprised by the large shifts in the sub-scores. It does kind of make sense though since I've let my reading habit slip but become an anime addict since last time.

*In the interests of full disclosure I should say that I took some of the listening twice because of internet problems. I don't really think it helped much but I did change my answer to one question I got twice so it's not nothing.

Over 3 tests it's gone like
Code:
Listening   49  46  56
Vocabulary  45  16  47
Grammar     44  36  41
Reading     38  47  x
(something went wrong with the reading section this time)

I'm sure I've improved more than that really.

I passed the N1 two years ago and essentially stopped studying, but I got a full-time translator gig last month, so I thought I'd use this to identify what to work on.

I had to step away from the computer and couldn't answer three of the listening questions, which skewed it a bit. Very rusty with vocabulary. I probably got tricked by several of the "look at the underlined word in this sentence; now, which one of the very similar words in these four sentences is a synonym?" questions. Grammar was easy until I got to the end and it hit me with classical structures I don't remember studying at all, and reading was the same - mostly easy-to-skim article summaries until the end, when I was confronted with textual nightmares laden with unreadable place names.
