Bai Ro Qi hurriedly explained, “Mister Examiner, have you forgotten? Earlier when the first round of assessment had ended, you announced that I had been pre-selected! Moreover, I was given the prospective core quota! Please try to recall?”
The examiner replied, “When I was announcing the results, I have already mentioned this. The names which I called out on the enrolment name list after all the assessments have ended was the most accurate. Sine your name was not there, you had been eliminated! Hurry and leave now!”
Bai Ruo Qi’s eyes turned wide with surprise, showing a look of disbelief.
“Ah? How is that possible? You must be mistaken! I had really been selected earlier! Everyone heard that right? The name list must have left my name out! Moreover, if I wasn’t pre-selected, my ranking is twentieth, so surely I’d be in the recruitment name list right?”
Bai Ruo Qi’s defence had lured the other new examinees to quietly discuss this issue.
“That’s right, I recall now. This South Yue Kingdom’s Bai Ruo Qi…. Earlier was indeed pre-selected!”
“Right, and she is ranked rather forward! Isn’t it said that Celestial Light Academy’s recruitment name list are strictly selected based on the total points ranking? How come she isn’t selected?”
“That’s right, could it be that she was really left out by mistake?”
Hearing the crowd’s discussions, Bai Ruo Qi felt that her confidence rising and facing the examiner once again, her tone held some senses of interrogation.
“Mister Examiner, I heard that Celestial Light Academy’s assessments have always been the fairest and not operated underhandedly! Then I’d like to ask why is it that I’m ranked top twenty but I’m not recruited? Is it because you didn’t do your job properly and left me out or think I’m from a small country so I can be bullied and intentionally removed my name?”
Bai Ruo Qi felt she was justified and thought that she knew quite a number of people during the past few days at Celestial Light Academy. So many high levelled practitioners had to give her uncle face, so she was so pleased that she momentarily lost her sense of measure and spoke in a blunt manner to the examiner.
When the examiner heard her words, his expression turned extremely ugly.
The usual core students in the academy were very polite to teachers but what was this lass? Not only was she from a small country, her innate talent was only fourth lower grade talent, so what qualifications did she have to make a fuss here?
“Your guts is really not small! Seems like you’d have to see the coffin before you knew how to shed tears!” The examiner said gloomily, “Originally I had given Senior Bai Liu Feng’s face to leave you some reputation, not exposing you and let you leave the academy quietly. But from the looks of it, you don’t seem to know where you’re wrong and you don’t intend to save some pride for yourself!”
Bai Ruo Qi went into a blank as her heart missed a beat.
She subconsciously became flustered, could it be… could it be that her attempt at cheating in the examinations had been discovered?
But this thought only flashed by for a moment before it was thrown out of her mind.
No, it was impossible, how could it be discovered?
The person who had leaked out the questions to her was some high ranking educator in Celestial Light Academy.
Moreover, she had followed regulations in the few rounds of assessment and had done it ingeniously so since there wasn’t any obvious violation, who was able to see through it?
Thinking to this point, she straightened her spine as she spoke confidently, “Mister Examiner, I don’t understand what you mean! All that I’ve done are prim and proper and I’ve never done anything underhanded! How can you think in this way and just pin a crime onto me like this?”
