Today I received a new request. It turns out that content from the UK version of my book The Undercover Scientist has been (and is still being) used as part of an official Japanese University Entrance Exam. The passage is presented to the students, with some questions that test the ability of the students to understand the meaning of the text, and also their ability to understand which words should be used in which context.

The request is from the publisher (Obunsha) of a test preparation workbook for students. I've granted them permission to use a specific passage from my book with certain questions. I won't say which passage, in case any Japanese readers find this entry! The book will be called Daigaku Nyushi Mondai Seikai available in June 2010.

Anyway, it's a pleasure to find that my books are being used for such diverse applications, and I'm honoured to be able to help the new generations of Japanese university applicants in this way.
