Test Takers Data To Be Shared

People taking the TOEIC test may soon find themselves being encouraged to test themselves in kanji, bookkeeping or even law. 28 organizations that administer some of the 500 or so certification and proficiency exams offered in Japan are to begin sharing information on test takers. The move is in reaction to increased competition due in part to the declining birthrate. Also, as the education ministry will discontinue authorization of these exams in 2005 as part of its reforms, the number of applicants is xpected to decline.
