Pieces of Advice from Our Alumni
We recently asked our alumni students their thoughts about things they think they should have done better,
or things they should have more cautious about, to give to our current students and make the most of their time studying here in Elite. We will be sharing with you some piece of advice from our alumni students who have passed in graduate schools, universities/colleges, and vocational schools.
We hope that everyone that reads this will be even more motivated to study for the exam.
Graduate School Students
-Read a lot of treatises and technical books.
-It is better to remember in detail your research background, backed up with previous other research and research methods, and the latest information about your research plan.
-You should keep in contact with the professor in charge.
-Please prepare as early as possible. Japanese and research plans are important.
-Speaking ability is more important than the JLPT grade.
-It is important to match the research of the professor, otherwise, the oral examination will be
difficult no matter how good your research plan is. If possible, solve the past questions available repeatedly.
-You should be able to emphasize your statements for reason of aspiration and attendance rate (for document screening)
-Interviews are important. You won't be able to pass unless you prepare properly
-Decide on a specific theme you want to study and read technical books related to your chosen theme.
-Practice and practice your interview answers.
-Be clear about what you want to say without showing your nerves
-Your performance in your language school is important.
-I think it is important to be naturally curious about things and happenings in daily life.
-The interview is not that scary, but just make sure to relax and stay composed just before the interview.
-It is better to visit the school first before choosing the school that is right for you
-It is better to properly prepare your reason "for choosing the school" and "future dreams"
-You should pay attention to the news and current affairs
-You should prepare your answers well before you take the interview
-Having good manners is definitely a plus point towards passing.
Having read all of the alumni students' advice,
it is completely an understatement to say that an early proper planning is one of the most
important things you have to consider when it comes to preparation.
Even if you think that you still have plenty of time, it's definitely better to start
early for your own betterment.
