I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 15. Entrance Exam Results (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
Starting with the Great Royal Academy located in the center of the Empire, there were other academies with different specializations in four directions: East, west, north, and south.
The purpose of these Academies was to discover someone’s talents in a specific region, in consideration of those who could not attend the central, grand Academy.
And since the Academies had large facilities, students were carefully divided into classes according to their talents.
Basically, they were assigned to four classes: A, B, C, D.
Apart from those, there was another class that very few people could enter. Class S consists of people from the royal family, high nobility, dukes and marquises.
In total, there were five classes.
However, the annual admission rate to the Royal Grand Academy was extremely low compared to the total number of candidates and applicants.
The admission rate was below 10% of all candidates.
There was an entrance exam, which at the discretion of the instructors, determined the class to which successful candidates were assigned.
Surprisingly, there was an absolute standard.
Not only was a minimum qualification required, but also a minimum attribute level, excluding those attributes that were of interest to the instructors.
If an attribute was associated with magic, it could usually pass regardless of its level and grade, as long as there was no reason for disqualification.
An attribute related to magic would always be treated with due prominence.
And, the most valued attribute type after magic was elemental. It was closely related to magic, but it was a separate attribute.
There were also those who had special attributes.
On the other hand, the remaining attributes had to be filtered out.
It was practically impossible to pass with a common grade attribute.
But there was an exception for those who had reached level 3.
Of course, the passing standards were not publicly disclosed. In fact, very few students at the Academy who had a common grade attribute reached level 3 before taking the entrance exam. They usually tested at level 2, or even 1.
It was very difficult to reach level 3 with a common grade attribute.
Most candidates with a rare grade attribute onwards were able to pass.
But the statistic was about only 1 in 100 people had a rare grade attribute or above.
The main entrance of the central Great Royal Academy.
It was shortly after one o’clock in the afternoon. A lot of people were at that place.
The number of people was down compared to those who showed up for the entrance exam yesterday, but there was still a crowd. A man was pushing his way through them. Posted only on NovelUtopia
“Excuse me. I’m sorry. Let me pass.”
Han Seong apologized repeatedly as he pushed through the human tide.
That’s how he arrived in front of the huge sign posted next to the main gate.
He began to look at the sign from above.
Han Seong, Han Seong…
He wondered where his name would be.
He hoped that he would be admitted to the Academy, because he knew how this world worked. The most important thing now was to know what class he was assigned to.
Please, Class B.
He didn’t even look at the list of students who had been assigned to Class A.
Because he knew he wouldn’t be assigned to Class A.
So he started looking for his name on the list of those assigned to class B.
He stood his ground despite the constant pushing and shoving from people as he read the list of passed students assigned to class B. He was shocked.
“Where is my name? There are too many.”
Hundreds of people were on the Class B list.
Darmian Bederin – B1
Luke Monier – B1
Labella Orsia – B1
The list kept going on.
The last name was written next to the first name and the assigned class was listed separately. Belatedly, he realized something as he continued reading the list.
Yes. There are also nobles…
Members of the nobility take the entrance exam in advance.
Unlike commoners, who wait their turn in line for a single day to take the entrance exam, nobles took the entrance exam calmly at another location.
Therefore, it was normal that there were more people on the pass list than yesterday’s entrance examination. Because yesterday was only the entrance exam for commoners.
After a brief click of the tongue, he continued reading the list from B1.
B1. B2. B3…
Students are divided according to their qualifications even within the B class.
Those who had obtained the best scores within the B class were assigned to B1. The next highest scores to B2, then B3… and so on….
He felt his heart drop as he finished reading the list of passes through B4.
He couldn’t find his name even though he looked hard.
It was impossible that he didn’t see the characters of his name Han Seong until now.
And B5 was the last one in class B.
When he read the first half of B5, a sigh escaped him.
He stomped his foot unconsciously.
There was a reason he wanted to be in class B.
The Academy gave out subsidies depending on the student’s class.
He had to be in class B to get the equipment or food he wanted.
Class C students received 20 silver coins a month from the Academy, while Class B received a whopping 50 silver coins a month.
Class B received over double the amount of coins Class C got.
And he had the clear goal of purchasing a decent spear with the money he would be given…
