I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 52.2

In fact, thanks to the Mental Spellbook trait, it was harder to find spells that I didn’t know, but in any case, wasn’t that also something I had achieved through my own efforts?

Time passed like that, and finally, the morning of the written exam arrived.

“It seems like all the examinees have gathered.”

While I was lost in thought for a moment, the exam supervisor seemed to have arrived.

I glanced to my left and saw Seo Ji-an, who was also taking the exam.

The supervisor scanned the students who were seated in their respective seats, and after a brief silence, continued speaking.

“The exam will now begin. Please check your terminals.”

At the same time, the supervisor handed out paper answer sheets to the students.

“Once you have checked the contents, the exam questions will be unlocked. The exam will last for 90 minutes, and please note that you will not be allowed to leave the room until you have submitted your answer sheet.”

I checked it myself, and all but four multiple-choice questions were subjective questions.

It’s quite difficult, more than I thought.

【4. Describe the defensive spell that you think has the most similar structure to the offensive spell Dagger Poison Hail, and explain why.】

This is a question that brings back fond memories.

When the PVP mode was first introduced in the VR version of the exorcism series, there weren’t many spells available yet, so users tried to utilize the approved spells in as many different ways as possible.

Dagger Poison Hail was one of the spells that was frequently used during that time.

The correct answer to the question is the basic defensive spell, Protective Stitch. And the reason for this is, to be honest, quite extensive.

If I were to write down all the facts that I know, the answer would be unnecessarily long, so I optimized it to fit the level of knowledge here.

【6. If you were to reconstruct the offensive spell Rending Wave in a more effective form, how would you approach it? Feel free to express your opinion.】

In fact, I already have a clear answer to this in my head.

That’s because in the next series, there will be a spell that is a direct upgrade of this intermediate-level offensive spell, Rending Wave.

I referred to it appropriately and wrote down the answer to the question.

As I solved the problems like that, the screen of the terminal eventually stopped scrolling.

I had already finished solving all the questions.

I checked the answers I had written down once more and raised my hand to submit the answer sheet.

“. . .Once submitted, there is no going back. Are you sure?”

The Academy professor who was the exam supervisor sighed and asked me, looking regretful.

It seemed that he thought I had given up and answered the questions haphazardly because of the difficulty of the exam.

However, when he saw my densely filled answer sheet, he looked at me again in surprise.

“W-Wow, you’re very fast.”

I could feel the gazes of the other students on me as the professor’s flustered voice echoed through the room.

I tried to ignore those gazes and headed out of the exam room after submitting my answer sheet.

Thinking that I had finished the exam satisfactorily.



Julia, who was the supervisor for the written section of the second-year promotion exam this semester, was engrossed in one student’s answer sheet while grading the papers and couldn’t seem to tear herself away from it.

“This can’t be. . . . . . .”

No matter how many times she read it, she still couldn’t believe it. The answers he had given were shocking, to say the least.

“How can a student come up with such an idea?”

To be honest, the questions for this promotion exam were quite difficult.

Rather than demanding perfect answers, it was intended to test the students’ solid knowledge and free thinking that they had accumulated over time.

However, Han Kang-yoon approached and solved the problems from a completely different perspective. He had submitted answers that went beyond the intentions of the examiner.

The answer to question 6 in particular was like that.

【6. If you were to reconstruct the offensive spell Rending Wave in a more effective form, how would you approach it? Feel free to express your opinion.】

▶『Rending Wave is a spell that is favored by many exorcists for its versatility and decent effects, but it is not without room for improvement.

In particular, I think the ring-shaped spell engraving derived from the lower-level spell Rending Wave is now actually hindering the development of the spell. At first glance, it may seem like the most suitable engraving form for the current combination, but if you change your perspective. . . . . . .』

「𝙃𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙖𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙣 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙤 𝙖 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙮.」

No matter how many times she checked and thought about it, this spell was already theoretically complete. It would probably be usable in real combat, although it would have to be tested through experiments.

「𝙒𝙝𝙮 𝙞𝙨 𝙖 𝙨𝙩𝙪𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙣 𝘾𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙨 𝘿. . . . . .?」

Curious, she looked up Han Kang-yoon’s records in the Academy database and saw that his practical grades were indeed not very good until the end of his first year.

However, since the beginning of his second year, he had been on a steady rise. And Julia could instinctively feel it.

The fact that this upward trend was just the beginning.

「𝙃𝙞𝙨 𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙚𝙥𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙚𝙭𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙧𝙮.」

This year’s second-year class was full of talented students. There was Sophia, who was called a monster, and other gifted students who would be able to find a place for themselves anywhere after graduating.

However, Julia was now beginning to imagine a new possibility in her mind.

Perhaps Han Kang-yoon, who was currently in Class D, was a talent who surpassed even them.

Julia, excited and thrilled, called her colleague who was in charge of the practical section of this promotion exam, even though it was already late at night.



『. . .Ugh, what is it in the middle of the night.』

“Listen! There’s an amazing kid in this exam!”

『Are you talking about the exchange student Viola? I’ve heard a lot about her from your side. You didn’t hear about it?』

“No, I know about her, of course. I’m talking about one of the regular students.”


And so, Han Kang-yoon’s name gradually began to spread among the supervisors.
