Gear Up for Final Exams ( (そな) えろ () (まつ) テスト Sonaero Kimatsu Tesuto?) is the sixtieth chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.


Time has passed since the end of the workplace training; it is now the final week of June and there is one week left until the end of term test.

In Class 1-A, everyone is talking about the end of term test; Denki and Mina admit that they haven't been studying due to the many events that have taken place throughout the semester, to which Fumikage agrees. Rikido notes that the end of term test will be more difficult than the mid-term tests. Minoru smugly remarks that there is also an exercise test, sarcastically saying that it will be tough (only because he doesn't have low grades), much to Mina and Denki's annoyance that he was really smart. Izuku (who has the fourth highest grade) encourages Denki and Mina to do their best because he wants to go to the forest lodge with them; Tenya (who has the second highest grade) also encourages them while Shoto (who has the fifth highest grade) remarks that if he had just attended classes normally then he would not have such low grades, to which Denki asks Shoto to mind his words. Meanwhile, Momo (who has the highest grade in the class overall) says that she can help them with studying, although she is not confident about the exercise test; Mashirao, Kyoka and Hanta ask for her guidance which makes Momo blush with pride and gratefully decides to help them. Eijiro says that Momo is being virtuous to which Katsuki angrily reminds him that he is also virtuous, saying that he will tutor him until he bleeds (since he has the third highest grade in the class) which Eijiro says he expects this.

In the lunchroom, Izuku, Tenya Ida, Shoto, Ochaco, Tsuyu and Toru eat at a table, discussing about how they will perform in the end of term test; they have high hopes about the written tests but not about the exercise test since they do not know what it is. Then, Neito bumps into Izuku, causing him to apologize. Neito notes that Izuku, Shoto and Tenya had an encounter with the Hero Killer and as a result has caused Class 1-A's popularity to rise even more. Neito remarks that his class will one day get into such danger, sarcastically saying that it will be scary and they will get hurt. Suddenly, Itsuka shoves Neito onto the floor and reprimands him for making fun of Izuku, Shoto and Tenya's encounter with the Hero Killer, apologizing for Neito's behavior. Itsuka says that she heard them talking about the exercise test; she reveals that the exercise test is a battle simulation fighting against robots just like the Entrance Exam. Izuku is shocked that she has knowledge about the exercise test, to which Itsuka says that she gained the knowledge from an upper-classman. On the floor, Neito criticizes Itsuka for revealing the knowledge on the exercise test, as he wanted to use that hidden knowledge to forestall Class 1-A and defeat them. Itsuka drags Neito away and hits him again, reminding Neito that they don't detest Class 1-A.

Back in class, Izuku reveals the content of the exercise test to the class, much to Denki and Mina's happiness; Mezo notes that they are happy because they don't have to adjust their Quirks for real-life opponents. Katsuki insults them as they try to respond but are fearfully silenced by his yells that they should improve their quirks. Katsuki then turns his attention to Izuku, who is worried as Katsuki says that Izuku is starting to get on his nerves. Ochaco remarks to Denki and Mina that Katsuki is referring to Izuku's movements during the Foundational Hero Studies. Katsuki says to Izuku that he doesn't want the same hollow result as the Sports Festival. Katsuki says that they will determine who is the better man by their grades; Katsuki remarks that he will show the power gap between them and defeat him. Seething, Katsuki says that he will defeat Shoto as well. Katsuki angrily walks out. Eijiro notes that Katsuki hasn't been agitated in a while to which Fumikage says that Katsuki's animosity is getting the better of him. While Katsuki walks through the corridor, Shota notes that Katsuki has become worse.

Throughout the final week before the end of term test, all of Class 1-A is studying hard; Momo has formed a study group with Kyoka, Denki, Mina, Mashirao and Hanta where she helps them study by lecturing them. Class 1-A writes the end of term written test which they all pass.

Now, the day for the exercise test has come. Class 1-A is outside with many U.A. teachers. Shota says that without a doubt they have some knowledge on the exercise test, to which Mina and Denki exclaim that it will be fighting against robots. Suddenly, Principal Nezu jumps out of Shota's scarf and reveals to Class 1-A that they will not be having a battle simulation against robots for their test exercise.

Mr. Principal explains that the recent surge of villains has caused the school to increase the quality of their training methods in order to increase the students' battle experience; Mr. Principal says that from now on, U.A. students will be having battle simulations similar to real-life battles; Class 1-A will be the first students who will have real-life battle simulations. Mr. Principal reveals that Class 1-A's test exercise will be forming pairs and facing one of U.A.'s teachers in combat, shocking Class 1-A. Mr. Principal states that Class 1-A's pairs and the teachers they will fight have been decided. Shoto and Momo will be paired together and face Shota in combat for their exercise test. Shota says that Izuku and Katsuki will be paired together, much to their shock. Izuku and Katsuki become more surprised to learn that they will be facing All Might in combat for their exercise test. All Might tells the duo to cooperate together to defeat him.
