I just discovered this, and took the Russian test. I got B2, which is way above my actual level, I am rather A2 at least in active skills.

In the French test I got 37 out of 40, but I still cannot figure out where I made the mistakes.

It gave me "Upper Intermediate (B2)" when I scored 32 for Japanese.

I think I might scrape a B1 for reading. The test seemed to be pretty simple stuff with
no complicated grammar or nasty surprises. (Maybe the JLPT has left me with a warped idea
of difficulty levels :-))

As they're obviously selling language-related products, I'd've thought they'd want to
grade you downwards rather than upwards. Or maybe they don't care and they're just
collecting email addresses?

if one worked through a few Practice Makes Perfect books you could answer those 40 grammar questions with ease but not have enough vocabulary to get past B1 in a CEFR exam.

Don't the French Practice Makes Perfect books include a lot of vocabulary? Or is the vocabulary covered infrequently used words, and therefore not so helpful?

I got a B1 by the way. Grammar has definitely not been my focus.

Yes - the PMP series contains a good block of frequently used words per unit - so in
that sense I am talking rubbish....
