The next day, after much deliberation, I finally made a decision.

「𝙄 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙚𝙭𝙖𝙢 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙡𝙡.」

This is reality.

In a game, you can create situations by pressing a button or entering a command, but here, nothing changes unless I take the initiative.

That’s why I need to be at the center of the action for the sake of my future.

「𝙄𝙛 𝙄 𝙛𝙖𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙃𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙞𝙛𝙛𝙞𝙘𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙮 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙 𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙨 𝙪𝙥 𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙖𝙥𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜.」

The world after exorcism 5, which I helped create with my sweat and tears, will cease to exist.

The time, passion, and memories that I poured into it without a doubt will simply disappear.

I can’t let that happen.

My life is literally in there.

So I followed the instructions on the student terminal and applied for the promotion exam, and spent the remaining time preparing.

“. . .Are you really going to take the exam? That’s crazy!”

Choi Eun-yeol and Jeong Seung-won, who I became friends with during the integrated combat practice class, were surprised by my decision.

“Why? Han Yoon-woo is only level 7. And she takes combat practice with Sophia.”

“Is that the same as this? I heard from the seniors that even if you take the promotion exam, you’ll just get humiliated by the exchange students. I’m worried about you.”

Now that I think about it, there was such a thing.

In order to assign classes to the exchange students who transfer almost every semester, they also take the test with the promotion exam applicants.

Naturally, most of the applicants are no match for the elite exchange students, and there are apparently quite a few students who drop out of the Academy after being disappointed.

「𝘾𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙠 𝙤𝙛 𝙞𝙩, 𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚. . . . . .」

One of the incidents that leads to the story of Chapter 2 in the original work will involve an exchange student participating in the exam.

She is Viola, who transfers to Class 1-A and is related to Johan, an exchange student who is part of the main character’s group in Class 1-A.

However, it didn’t seem like she would be involved during the exam, so I quickly turned my attention to something else.

Choi Eun-yeol carefully asked me,

“If I ask my senior acquaintances, I might be able to get some past exam questions. Do you need them?”

“I’d appreciate that.”

Once I’ve decided to take the exam, I can’t afford to fail, even by mistake.

I steeled my resolve and headed to the library inside the Academy after finishing all my classes.

Simply put, the class promotion exam consists of two stages.

The written exam, which assesses the knowledge level of the participants, and the practical exam, which evaluates their combat abilities in a real-life scenario.

The written exam was the first one, so the students taking the exam were busy racking their brains in the library or discussion room.

Among them was Cheong Juhwa, who was also taking the exam this time.

“It was from the year before last, but how am I supposed to explain this if it comes out like this? Even if I look at the answer, I don’t understand. . . . . . .”

She came to me out of the blue, looking upset, and had been learning past exam questions from me for the past few days.

At first, I wondered what she was talking about since she was quickly following along with the spells she had seen only once or twice. But I soon realized the reason.

She was the type of person who relied on her senses, so she was surprisingly weak at explaining things in a standard way.

She could understand and handle everything just by looking at it, but if she was asked to explain it according to a standardized theory, it was natural that she wouldn’t be able to grasp the gist of it.

“Here. This is also strange. Why did they put two engravings with the same effect in two different places? It just slows down the development.”

“It’s for stability. If the structure is not solid, the probability of failure increases.”

“. . .Why? Why would you fail just because you omitted this one thing?”

To summarize the days we spent together, it was like this.

I wondered how she had passed the exam last semester, but thinking about it, there were almost no written subjects in the first semester of the first year.

In the end, I had no choice but to forcefully instill the knowledge imparted by the Mental Spellbook trait into Cheong Juhwa through rote memorization.

“If you don’t know, just memorize it. You can forget it after the exam.”

“Ugh. . . . . . .”

“Don’t try to understand or comprehend it unnecessarily,”

Cheong Juhwa was reluctant, but since she was fundamentally a diligent person, she was able to follow along and finish preparing for the exam.

“But what are you, a walking encyclopedia? How do you memorize all that?”

“I’ve used it a lot.”

“Does it work just because you’ve used it a lot. . . . . .?”
