Passing the N2 means that there is a bigger chance of getting a working visa with compensation like a Japanese national while passing N3 means that they can work as specified skilled workers in Japan.

Gov. Eugenio Jose V. Lacson said that ‘Japanese language is one of the most difficult languages in the world but I am very happy with the results of the JLPT because more Negrense-scholars are now considered Japanese language proficient.

He added that being a Japanese language proficient is a gift, it is an extraordinary skill that will provide greater opportunities to our scholars in Japan.
