1- Chemistry -- This is the only test that I felt like I should have understood more than I actually did. I was hoping I would do fairly well both because I pay attention in Chemistry class most of the time, and because I’ve already taken chemistry in the United States. It was about writing chemical reactions, molarity, pH, and some other stuff that I didn’t understand, with a lot of Kanji.
2- English G -- I found the English G test much harder than the English II test, mostly because there Mr. Fujimoto had his students do a lot of translating, both English to Japanese, and Japanese to English. In general, though, I thought I did pretty well, except for the first set of questions, which involved identifying English sentence elements in Japanese.
3- Music -- The music test involved 3 basic parts: completing a text about the different kinds of instruments in Japanese using a word bank provided at the end, rewriting music in standard form (like creating a quarter note from two eighth notes tied together), and identifying pictures of western and Japanese instruments (the Japanese instruments’ names had to be written in Kanji, by the way). The music rewriting part was very easy for me because of my music background, but the other parts were more difficult.
