The national university entrance examination is coming up and the students of Class 3/4, which Onizuka Eikichi (AKIRA) is in charge of, enter exam mode. Onizuka who conducts career counselling for the students with assistant form teacher Fuyutsuki Azusa (Takimoto Miori), questions their mentality of aiming for a good university in order to get into a good company. One day, a heated exchange breaks out between the students who have divided into the job-hunters and the exam takers. Azusa breaks it up but gets told by the students, “After all a teacher goes to a suitable university and ends up in the secure teaching profession.” This hits the mark and there is nothing that she can say in return. Two days before the national university entrance examination, a workshop with alumni who were accepted into elite universities is held at Meishu Academy. While watching over the students, Onizuka gets up on the stage and exhorts them that their own worth will not be determined by the name of the university, but by a life lived without regrets. However, he gets criticised by them. On the other hand, several of the students’ parents are gathered at Kuse Toshiaki’s (Hasegawa Tomoharu) place. Kuse proclaims himself an “enrolment consultant” who gets students in through the back door in what is described as “special priority admission”. The parents are worried about the future of their children. On the day before the exam, Onizuka asks the academy’s principal Sakurai Ryoko (Kuroki Hitomi) if it is that important to look at reality.

Not a very interesting special, I only watched this because of my love for the drama (The other specials were nothing "special" either!)
The story is repetitive, Students struggling to realise their worth and Onizuka guiding them. The overall plot is dull, however I guess we needed a graduation to end our journey with class 2-4!
The acting was good, not as great as it has been previous episodes, but the cast is the same so nothing about the acting has changed. I think all the actors were just lacking something in this special, or maybe its just because I wasn't enjoying it as much.

I am glad I watched it but I probably wouldn't watch it again!

I'd give this Graduation Special a 7 overall.
