The kanji Kentei test is the ultimate kanji test. It’s made for native Japanese speakers (that means it’s tough) and has ten different levels, where level 10 is the easiest, and level 1 is the hardest. Here’s a few interesting stat-shots regarding the Kanji Kentei test.
◆ Fewer than 15% of people who take level 1 are able to pass
◆ Native speakers pass levels 10-7 at an 80% rate.
◆ It tests the ability to read kanji
◆ kun’yomi, stroke order, and the ability to use them in sentences.
◆ Depending on the level
