What BJT Business Japanese Proficiency Test (Former JETRO Test)?
The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is a government-affiliated organization established in 1959 to provide all-round support for the development of Japanese trade. As part of its activities, it runs the BJT Business Japanese Proficiency Test (“BJT”) to promote the inflow of skilled human resources from overseas. The BJT is presently run in cooperation with the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (which run the Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and the National Institute for Japanese Language, and is supported by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Agency for Cultural Affairs, and Japanese business community.
The BJT is designed to objectively measure and evaluate one’s proficiency in using the Japanese language for communication involving a variety of situations and circumstances, targeting non-native speakers engaged primarily in business.
Actual business situations are reflected, as realistically as possible, in the test. The test gives priority to measuring and evaluating one’s ability to understand and communicate in Japanese encountered in business situations, rather than simply measuring one’s knowledge of vocabulary, grammar and business.

The test has two parts, 1) a listening and reading test (the JLRT) to measure and evaluate comprehension and 2) an oral communication test (the JOCT) to measure and evaluate communication
