Itsuki is pretty adorable. Though Mr. Sandwich comes across as a little condescending to him. I dunno.

Too bad I decided not to take my summer class. I feel like I wasted the summer :lol:
Wonder what Itsuki will do in this arc. He didn't do much in the last one.

And Itsuki comes across as a little bit insolent, so that balances out things.

Is the tag around his neck supposed to indicate that he "officially" works with Mr. Sandwich now, or is that a purely cosmetic change?

Been there before.

Also, I think Rick missed a spot in Panel 4. The patch of fur on his left arm isn't colored.

Tut tut. Before the exam started he should have taken his phone out of his pocket, turned it off, and placed it sealed under the table in the clear plastic bag provided. Then he should have placed his student card in the top-right corner of the table, and written his student number, table number and module number on the front of the exam paper. The time is currently 11.45am, meaning you will finish this exam at 1.45pm. You may begin.

That's why I never brought any electronic gadgets with me on tests besides a calculator.

And because no other devices were allowed in the rooms.

I generally keep my phone on vibrate, and I really don't get calls/texts all that often, so this was never really a problem for me.

Also, am I the only one who's curious what the song playing is? :0

I had a teacher last year who refused to tell us what we needed to pass. She said if we knew what we needed to pass, that's what we would aim for. By not telling everyone, they would then go for the highest score they could.

With just four tests you can get a 92 average with a 67 on one.
