1級 idioms

Is there an official list of idioms for the 1級 test?
I found this list on a chinese JLPT 1級 bbs, and thought I'd pass it on. I'm not sure if we are "officially" supposed to know these for the test, but some of them pop up quite often (and some, not so often!). How many have you seen before?

Hi maky,

There's an official list of Expressions and for Level 1 it's the same as level 2 with one extra one. See the list here:

A disappointingly small and boring list in comparison ;-)

Hmm that is a nice list you have there.
From my experience, these seem to be used a bit in the vocab section and also possibly in the listening.. i can't really remember, but it is worth memorising the entire list in my opinion. I have seen a number of them before (somewhere), but honestly haven't really looked them up.

I'll add it to my list of things to study.

They are not essential to know for the test (about 1 or 2 questions), but if it's a matter of 1 or 2 points from passing, then it is well worth the effort.
