I wonder, how to say just "I took the exam"?
The thing is, that saying 試験【しけん】を受ける 【うける】 could have two meanings, right?
1) The fact, that you took the exam, and 2) success in passing actually.
Am I right? If yes, how should I say "I took an exam", not "I passed an exam" - as f.ex. I am still waiting for results.
