Yakuza: Like A Dragon Test Answers - all Ounabara Vocational School exam answers

All exam answers in one place

Featured post Ichiban tentatively opens his exam results.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon isn’t all about fighting goons and making money. It’s also about building Kasuga’s personality to help you bash thugs better, of course. By taking exams at the Ounabara Vocational School, Kasuga can increase his six personality stats quickly, which’ll go towards protecting you against status effects in battle or unlocking specific jobs. On this page I’ll walk you through how the vocational school works and list all of the exam answers.


Here are all the Ounabara Vocational School exam answers in Yakuza: Like A Dragon.


How does the Ounabara Vocational School work?

You’ll be able to unlock the Ounabara Vocational School during Chapter 4, when you’re free to roam the streets of Yokohama. Look out for the substory marker on Daikokuten St. that’s roughly top right of the map.

Approach the marker and you’ll trigger ‘Substory 10: Fast times at Ounabara’. Long story short, you’ll be introduced to the whole exam system and how it’ll raise Kasuga’s personality stats. From here on out you’ll be enrolled at the school and free to swing by anytime to take exams and raise these stats.

A look at some of the certificates Ounabara Vocational School offers.

Each test contains five questions out of a possible ten, and you’ll have 30 seconds to pencil in your answer. They’re also multiple choice, but all of this doesn’t matter if you’re going to cheat using our guide anyway, you sly thing, you.

Exams are pricey, though. They can cost anywhere from 20,000 yen to a whopping 100,000 yen a pop, so while it’s a great way to boost Kasuga’s personality stats, it’s also going to create a massive hole in your wallet if you aren’t careful. Make sure you have a glance at our how to make money fast page to ensure you’re never out of change.

So, without further ado, make sure you click on the links above to take you to the exam answers you want and ace those tests!
