The high standard of the exam is acknowledged by the fact that entrance
points and credits to Japanese universities are obtainable with a pass at one
of the higher levels. Many employers also look favorably upon those who have
passed the test. Several large companies often encourage their employees to
take the exam by running it in their offices. Needless to say, many high
schools in Japan also insist that all of their students take the exam.
