The final exams starts next week, and the results decide whether or not the F-class students make it into college. After having received prior assistance from Naoki with her and her friends' schoolwork,much to Irie's annoyance. Kotoko is cajoled to get Naoki to tutor the whole of Class F so they can pass their finals. With Naoki's help, the whole of Class F passes their finals (with the exception of Kinnosuke who is too proud to receive any help from Irie.) When it is Christmas Day the class chips in to get a gift for Irie which ends up being a Kotoko doll. Kotoko on the other hand works really hard as a waitress to buy Irie's Christmas present.
