If your field of study doesn't require you to study in depth knowledge of Japanese language, it is okay if you didn't perfect the Japanese language test. @Derrick Aka

We did the written Test, now waiting for the results and short list of those to attend the oral interviews. The results are scheduled to be out today. Am hoping to be on that List. Also, I have tried to send emails to the professors in the Three Universities I had put as my choice selection asking them for guidance and help on the research proposal and also if they are willing supervise but none has replied as yet. Only an associate professor from Tohoku replied informing me that associate professors cannot supervise and only full professors supervise. Also am really working on writing a more serious research proposal for a masters in civil structural engineering. Any pointers you can give me will be very helpful.

hey can I get the updated link to the group please. This says content not found. Thanks :)
The link works for me. I think its because I have changed the group type to secret because people who are not even selected for the scholarship were joining the group. I wanted a group for selected scholars to discuss stuff. Can you send a link of your fb profile to me? I'l invite you. (Direct/personal message me here)

Hi everyone!
I hope someone can give some insight on this, would be really helpful.
I applied to MEXT research student last year but failed, but this time I have applied for the second time with different research topic, and I am heading soon to the embassy for an interview. I am pretty sure they will ask me why did I change my topic. To be honest, I've changed the topic because the first one wasn't very interesting to me. I guess I can't say that to the interview panel:) Has anyone had any experience with that? And how would you handle that question?
Thanks!!

Why cant you tell them what you have written here? I think its an acceptable answer. Just frame it properly. Eg : during my internship at my institute I came across this topic and I find this more interesting.
I dont think they will argue or judge you for that. People change their research topics frequently. I changed my research proposal and the topic when I applied for the second time. They didnot even remember my previous proposal/topic.
