U.A. Recommendation Entrance Exam (雄英高校推薦入試 Yūei Kōkō Suisen Nyūshi?) is a test given to exceptional middle school students with outstanding references to determine their acceptance into U.A. High School.


U.A. High's recommendation entrance exam consists of a written test, practical test, and an interview. For the practical exam, students race six at a time through a three-kilometer long obstacle course using their Quirks. Students receive numbers and their times are recorded by Present Mic.

Practical Exam

Inasa takes first place in the practical exam race.

One group of recommended students includes Shoto Todoroki, Juzo Honenuki and Inasa Yoarashi. Inasa uses his powerful Whirlwind Quirk to propel himself through the terrain. Shoto rides past Inasa on a wave of ice but Inasa passes him at the last moment to steal first place.


Inasa tries to befriend his competitor only to receive a rude response from the cold-eyed son of Endeavor. This leads Inasa to hold a grudge against both Shoto and Endeavor.[1] Despite recording the top score among recommended students, Inasa forgoes his acceptance and attends Shiketsu High School.[2]
