※Regarding changing the method of sending the examinee card(jukenhyo 受験票)
The examinee card with the examinee’s number was supposed to be sent by mail.

Print out your examinee card by yourself and bring it with you on the day of the entrance examination. Be sure to keep the examinee card as it will be required for admission procedures.
Along with this, it is not necessary to submit the application document (7) “Stamp board for sending the examinee card by post”.
