I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 16. Entrance Exam Results (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
If someone were to be unfortunate enough to have an ordinary attribute, they should at the very least have good equipment to try and make up for the loss.
However, Han would not be able to buy a good enough spear with the silver coins he would receive if he was assigned to class C.
When he finished reading the B5 list, he felt his heart sink.
Cusses began spewing out of his mouth naturally
This was not right.
Another bad start.
How could the worst always happen?
He discovered he had a bad attribute on the attribute test. But he quickly accepted it, somehow. So he practiced his Spearman attribute until he reached level 3 to perform great during the entrance exam.
Still it was not enough to be assigned to class B?
He was petrified as he thought about it.
He was sure that of the students admitted this year, probably not even 1% had been able to raise their attribute to level 3.
Then he remembered Glesia, whom he had met yesterday at the entrance exam.
She had reached level 3, although she had a unique grade attribute,
Glesia could be considered exceptional. She was outside the realm of the mundane from this world’s perspective.
She was different.
But he couldn’t believe that he wasn’t assigned to B class.
He let out a sigh.
He kept looking for her name on the C-class pass list amidst the jostling of other people. He didn’t have to look too hard to find his name.
Han Seong – C1
He couldn’t help but curse as soon as he saw his name.
If he had scored a little higher, he might have been in the B5 class.
He distinctly remembered Carly, one of the instructors from yesterday.
He was hopeful that he would be assigned to the B class.
Carly had looked favorably on him. She also said positive things about him. So even having a common grade attribute, he dreamed of being assigned to class B.
That meant that the other two instructors…
They probably did not evaluate his skill fairly during the exam.
He figured that because of his common grade attribute, he would have only been given the minimum passing score. He was sure that…if they had examined him a little better, with an open mind, he would have undoubtedly been assigned to the B class. Posted only on NovelUtopia
His strength left his body.
He walked away from his place after letting out a long sigh.
He didn’t want to keep looking at his name while the others were tripping over it.
All he felt was sadness.
“30 silver coins a month…”
There was a lot of a difference between the money class B and C received.
Considering that 1 gold coin was equivalent to 100 silver coins…. In one year, the difference in money received between the two classes would be a little more than 3 gold coins.
30 silver coins difference per month would be 360 silver coins in 12 months.
He sighed again in frustration.
While the B students could eat a sumptuous lunch, he couldn’t even eat something delicious to save as much money as he could.
And yet he doubted he could get the spear he wanted.
A spear made of mithril.
That was what he needed most right now.
He thought he had a chance of performing well with a mithril spear, in activities like monster subjugation practices.
But the money he needed for that was gone.
I think it would be more than 5 gold coins.
Of course, there should be no Academy student with the Spearman attribute. He had to place a custom order at a specialized blacksmith shop.
Even five gold coins seemed like a ridiculous price considering the cost of casting the mithril.
“This is going to drive me crazy.”
Even though he was trying to stay positive, he was now heartbroken.
…Even if he saved every last penny at the Academy, how many years would it take him to save more than 5 gold coins?
It didn’t matter that he was in the top C class.
When he stepped out of the crowd, a cold voice called to him.
When he turned his head he was dumbfounded.
He saw Glesia who was located far away from the sign.
He looked at her calmly, but at the same time with resentment.
Why did she take the exam in the same group as me?
In the back of his mind, he thought that the other instructors compared his skill to that of Glesia’s, which he thought to be the reason for his unfair evaluation.
Glesia’s evaluation score must have been excellent. Even if he had done good, it was impossible for him to get a better qualification than she did.
That was why he was assigned to class C instead of class B.
Contrary to his thoughts, he plastered a fake smile on his face.
“Glesia, did you already check which class you were assigned to?”
He approached her.
He couldn’t let go of the only person he could lean on now.
“Yes, class A1.”
He was silent for a moment at Glesia’s calm response.
That meant he was in the same class as the protagonist, Leonhard.
In the version of Great Royal Academy that he has read…
Glesia’s placement was something that hadn’t happened in the original story.
