Japanese Corner: Exam Season 受験(じゅけん)シーズン

Tsubasa, a high school student, who’s been nervous due to his upcoming university entrance exams, is complaining to his younger brother Kaito.
Tsubasa: Hey, I heard the flu is going around at your school?
Kaito: Yeah, there are some students who’ve caught the flu, both in my class and in the handball club.
Tsubasa: You’ve had your flu shot, right?
Kaito: Nope, I haven’t.
Tsubasa: What? Why on earth haven’t you?
Kaito: Because... I didn’t get it last year, or the year before last.
Tsubasa: Stop kidding around! Don’t you know I’m taking entrance exams? What are you going to do if you’ve caught the flu and then catch it from you before the National Center Test?
Kaito: But, I don’t know what to do… there is no use getting the shot now…
Tsubasa: OK, that’s it! I’ll get even with you. I’m not getting the shot, the year after the next when you will be taking the entrance exam!
Kaito: …
