I would have passed if I had known Chinese Language. That of which I know next to nothing about except a handful of mandarin words. I guess in the end If chinese language was omitted from the test I would have passed. That and I have a complaint. There was no comment on weather or not a question was wrong, or right. Only 5 actually had writing underneath. Again this may have attributed to my failing. But The most prominent was myself. I failed on my own for not properly studying Chinese language. a young teenager should not take the Juren exam. Take my word on that, unless you are in china. Then you may have more well rounded knowledge than someone from Massachusetts.

I'm very glad that I passed the Juren Exam! :jump: That exam was very challenging and a person holding that title truly deserves it. There were a few easy questions but most of it required thorough research and a critical discernment of the question. It took me a while to do, especially due to the fact that my internet kept stuffing up. So I had to restart the exam several times. The philosophy questions were the hardest as it required good research skills but more importantly critical analysis of philosophical ideas.

So my advice for future Juren Exam candidates is patience, a careful look at the question and most importantly prepare yourself for thorough research ranging from a variety of topics.

Just passed the Juren exam! It's tougher than the Xiucai exam, definitely, but not impossible. A lot of good questions on there. Took me 3hr22min.

Hi GZ,
I've got your e-mail. thanks alot! I have a questian. why can't we retake the exam after failing it? I mean, the same exam, same questians.


I've just changed the rule. One is allowed to re-take the Juren exam only one more time. That means, the maximum no. of times one can take the Juren exam is 2 times.

So in case you wish to re-take the Juren exam (if you fail), you can PM me to request to re-take it. You will not be allowed to re-take the Juren exam if you fail the Juren exam 2nd time.

Of course, to take the Jinshi exam, you're required to be a Juren scholar first. If you cannot make it to Juren title, then you can't take the Jinshi exam.

Ok, 1 question. If you fail the second time, you have no chance to go up anymore?

Unfortunately, we only allow one more chance to take the Juren exam if you fail the first time. Thus, I would suggest you really prepare yourself and study more before taking the Juren exam again. Also, do more reading up on materials in CHF or research the internet.

If you fail the 2nd time, your title will still remain as Xiucai Scholar. Nothing will change.
