The Japanese Language Proficiency Test

日本語能力試験
The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is conducted both in Japan and outside Japan to evaluate and certify the language proficiency of primarily non-native speakers of Japanese.
The test is administered by Japan Education Exchanges and Services, inside Japan, and by the Japan Foundation outside Japan.

The test date for 2005 is Sunday December 4 and the application period is July 4 - September 5.

In the UK the test is administered by SOAS Language Centre, University of London, on behalf of the Japan Foundation.

A good resource for studying the necessary kanji content of the test is Kanji Clinic
