    Default tomorrow are or tomorrow is

    I completely forgot that tomorrow are my big entrance exams for the year.

    This sentence is written by my friend. Why has he used are instead of is when the concerned noun is singular?

    I am also a little confused with the usage of the before year. I know it is correct but when we speak about the current day or the current week we usually use this over the like I am going out this evening.

    'I completely forgot that my big entrance exams are tomorrow'. He just placed 'tomorrow' somewhere different than usual.
