Naruto catches disgruntled looks at him for his words. Team Dosu seizes the opportunity to attack Kabuto in retaliation for his scornful assessment of the Village of Hidden Sound during his explanation of the Chuunin Exams. Intent on preventing the rising tensions, the proctors of the exam, led by Ibiki Morino, show up and settle the conflicts. When it turns out that the first stage of the exams, to Naruto’s great disappointment, is a written test, the genii are assigned seats. They are instructed to answer ten questions within half an hour. Anyone caught cheating frequently will be disqualified, along with the rest of his team. The entire team will also be disqualified if any of them fails the test. This last news shattered Sasuke and Sakura’s confidence in passing the test.
