Back then, Feng Wu used to be so confused and had to ask her master the reason for her memorizing all those theories and techniques . She wasn’t going to have all of those attributes anyway .
Her beautiful master told her that whether she had an attribute herself or not wasn’t relevant; it was about recognizing her opponents’ attributes and techniques . As the saying went: Know the enemy and know yourself, and you can fight a hundred battles with no danger of defeat .
Hence, her beautiful master had urged her to learn all the techniques by heart .
Back then, she had even talked to her master about making innovations to existing manuals .
She had only been five or six and knew too little to innovate anything . Her beautiful master, however, was a different story .
He was the man that could look down on the entire continent . He was like a god who stood on the clouds .
If he wanted, nothing on this continent could escape his eyes .
A casual comment on a practice manual could make men go wild with joy, or even create a grandmaster of a generation .
Hence, Feng Wu was elated when she read the question for the fourth section . It was right up her alley .
She wrote down her answer without hesitation .
The fifth section was on auxiliary skills .
From a list of questions related to auxiliary skills, one had to choose two and make improvements .
The subjects covered formations, medicine refinement, sewing, smelting, and so forth .
Feng Wu was looking at an incomplete formation .
She soon saw that it was a medium level formation, which could be turned into an advanced level one with some minor alterations…
Given her formation skills, Feng Wu solved the problem in no time .
The second question she chose was on medicine refinement, which she solved very quickly as well .
Feng Wu didn’t linger on any of the questions . She answered those she could answer, and as for those she couldn’t, staring at them wouldn’t change anything .
After handing in the paper, Feng Wu turned around to look at Chaoge .
Feng Wu had at least answered part of the first few sections and had done well in the last section . But Chaoge…
Chaoge had chewed the end of her pen raw, but her paper remained blank .
Chaoge looked up and her face reminded Feng Wu of a poor, sad spiritual pet .
Feng Wu rubbed her forehead .
Chaoge… had a lot of work to do .
After Feng Wu handed in her paper, Grand Secretary Fang began to correct it right away .
The first section totaled 50 points and Feng Wu scored 25 .
The second section required her to write from memory, but since Feng Wu wasn’t familiar with the text, she had left it blank, which meant she got a zero .
Grand Secretary Fang wrote a big, round zero on the paper with cinnabar . He then raised his head and gave Feng Wu a stern look .
Feng Wu felt ashamed and bit her lower lip involuntarily .
The third section was multiple choice questions .
The requirement was very strict . The answer was only correct when all correct option(s) and only the correct one(s) were selected .
There were ten questions in total and they could be on any subject .
The frown on Grand Secretary Fang’s face gradually eased as he read on .
Feng Wu had answered five out of the ten questions, and all five were correct . That was to say, as long as she knew the subject, she could get the correct answer .
The five unanswered ones were on subjects she didn’t know .
Out of the total 50 points, Feng Wu got 25 again .
Section four was short answer questions, and the candidate needed to elaborate on the theory, techniques, and innovations of the “Ice Everywhere” stance .
