Dear Log,

«This indicates that, since yobiko students choose to spend another year studying in the belief that entering a higher ranked university will be worth the effort, many Japanese people believe the education system is meritocratic. Yet, the establishment of the entrance examination system in Japan has resulted in a peculiar kind of meritocracy in which one's ability appears as one's achievement, which in turn becomes a socially constructed reality as a consequence of the selection process.»
