The birthrate has been declining in Japan and the number of children taking entrance exams is also decreasing. Furthermore, the styles of entrance exams and education advancement have become much more diverse. It is becoming more difficult for examinees to share their worries with each other and individual examinees are becoming isolated. 99% of high-schoolers own mobile devices that they use for studying with examinations apps. Smartphones are not a hindrance but a necessary tool for Japanese high-schoolers preparing for entrance exams. Then this approach comes to life, which enables supporters to use mobile devices and encourage each of examinees living far away at the break with KIT KAT during studies.
