This was one of the entrance exams/interviews for the Academy, the highest centre of learning in the world of Ark. Regardless of preparation, background, race or other cultural differences, it was agreed that the closely guarded entrance tests of the institution were considered 'difficult' by all attempting them.
Now we know why.
-These questions are directed towards an OC (original character) of your choosing, and HAVE to be answered by him/her/it ONLY with no outside or divine help from their creators.
-The OCs should be answering as they normally would.
-Take into account that this is considered to be a serious exam of which details are only revealed on the spot.
-No skipping questions.
-This doesn't necessarily have to relate to the Academy at alljust imagine that your OC understands that he/she/it stands the chance to win something really important by acing this exam/interview.
-Also, as this exam is taken 'on the spot', NO looking up of unknown words, absolutely. (This exam is designed to test every single aspect of a character, and originality and humour is as valuable here as in depth knowledge)
Ready? Now let's go.
(The exam can be conducted in any form of communication that the character can understand, even telepathy and such)
(Lerena Leigh Helena)
A) What is your primary philosophy of life?
The philosophy of life can be defined by one single word; existence. Living in this world is a privilege by one or more higher existences, known as God or gods. Each reason for existence is different. My reason for existence has been primarily defeated by a single or one incident, mostly influenced by the death of plenty or numerous existences. There is no way to know why you were sent to Earth to live unless you are dead and prospering elsewhere in the universe. Life is meant to be prosperous, either with money, entertainment, persistence, or death itself. Work is assigned based on the chemicals affecting desire and everlasting pursuit, which may result in annihilation.
The philosophy of life can be calculated based on this equation; R+A/WL+O+V)E, marked by the formula: Reward + Alliances/Work = (Luxury + Obstacles + Variation) E. The number of each, except the variable E for Exception, is to be replaced by your number of each per month. Number of rewards, alliances, jobs, luxuries, obstacles, and variations compared to alternate considered lifestyles. When dividing both sides, the resulting number is your rank in life, which affects your primary philosophy. "Variation" can be replaced by your personality type to monitor your soul's progress in winning the game with the role you've been assigned. Mostly to be considered for grading purposes, here is the equation with which I function with: 523 + 371/4 = (20 + 137 + 7) E.
The greatest possible achievement for a human's ranking in life is slightly less than 3. However, in each respective living environment, a different equation is used to determine your rank. This is the equation used to determine the weight of one's soul and whether it goes to Heaven or Hell. However, it is also extremely inaccurate due to the evaluation each religion conducts, so most fate-deciding representatives use a tool called SOULSCALE, which stands for: Sustenance Over Unnatural Living Systems Centering Around Luxurious Existences. It basically weighs your soul and how you lived your life compared to a particular standard.
B) If at any point of time 't' within this week, there is at least one other applicant 'a' applying for the same position in the Academy as you, how might you express an equation pertaining to your chances 'P' of getting the position you desire? (Additional terms to consider, but by no means exhaustive, are talent 'T', motivation 'm', background 'b', etc.)
BM(T+PD)A-PD)BM is the equation defined by these variables. Simply fill in the variables with all information accountable and suggested by any person in existence within this room, then work out the problem. Divide the answer by 100 to achieve the chances of me obtaining my position. On the contrary, each answer must be calculated by number hex codes for background, number of letters to an extended variable, marked by motivation percentage, and number of people who compliment your talent a day to your face. All letters in your chosen position must be multiplied than divided by number of letters in that word, while T remains variable. A always stands for 1.
C) If you were told that cheating, or hindering other applicants for this exam were considered 'perfectly acceptable' choices, how might this affect your decisions in the immediate or near future?
These answers extend to the thought and decision-processing in humans and other intellectual creatures, which may or may not affect a person based on morals and values, of which I do not know how to weigh mine. All I am sure of is I would cheat to achieve all possible goals and methods of success. That said, other people find my answers to be quite a hassle to understand and copy down.
D) If you are successful with this exam, you will not have the opportunity to connect with your family and friends for an extended period of time by any meanshow will you deal with this situation should it come to be?
Should I be successful with this exam, this equation should allow me plenty of time to calculate my future in life: T-F=7ya. I simply plug in the amount of time I spend dedicated to this academy and my friend count. "Y" stands for year, which means 365 days or 366 on a leap year. I multiple 365 or 366 by 7, then divide both sides by the resulting number. After that I multiply by 100% to get my time spent away from my friends and family. Once this time is fully calculated, my decision will be to modify my schedule accordingly. This question is merely to monitor my skills in time management, which quite frankly is pretty simple.
E) What mythological/fictional creature would you like to see brought into existence/revival?
This tests the percentage of sin in my system, which can be found out quite easily. Multiply TAURUS by each letter's respective position in the alphabet provided A is the first letter. Following that, divide the sum of those answers by 6, then multiply the resulting number by the sum of each deadly sin and all letters of my name. Take my birthstone's hex code and subtract it from that number. As a result, you should have a very long number. Divide by 1000 to get your main multiplication number. Multiply that number separately by the following numbers; 4 for Lust, 5 for Wrath, 6 for Vanity, 7 for Envy, 8 for Sloth, 9 for Gluttony, and 10 for Greed. Subtract 1, multiply by 2, than divide by 3 for each resulting number.
All seven numbers represent the times I've committed that sin. For the percentage of my soul it inhabits, divide by 1000 three times, then move the decimal to the right. Discard all zeros in the product. Provided you did this correctly, you should have seven different numbers that add up to roughly 50 percent. If this is wrong, positive karma has either been added to my soul or removed from my soul in the time it took you to calculate this problem, in which case multiply or divide each number by the number of quadrants mapped on your mathematics chart. This will give you the number of karma added or removed, and then you remove or add it to the original products. Answer cannot be negative unless I have excelled to a position Greater than God.
F) If you had to completely eliminate another species to see the previous scenario happening, what would that species be? Keep in mind that it would have to be of approximately the SAME SIZE as your choice of creature.
This tests my virtues, which can be found using the same method I described above.
G) Do you believe in a higher existence? Please explain your reasoning.
Contrary to my faith, I believe in multiple gods and goddesses who are actually just as human as everyone else. There is literally no existence better than any other; however, for simplistic terminology, there are ranks that determine your lifestyle here on Earth and elsewhere. Higher existences merely live on a more elegant and organized plane of existence that we as humans will never be able to reach until death for the safety of our soul. Reaching such an existence would be incomprehensible for our placement in our assigned universe.
H) You and everyone you know are on an infinitely large, ill-fated vessel that is going to be disintegrated with everyone on board, with this fate being unpreventable by any means. If you had the absolute authority, which ONE being/person would you grant the chance to escape?
Literally dependent on my current position in life, I am being asked for the person of whom I have given my heart to; my lover, in simplest terms. For the answer, take a three-letter slang word for the male reproductive organ in humans, and then apply a five-letter first name before a six-letter Egyptian goddess. If done correctly, you should come up with the answer corresponding to my alternative use. If done incorrectly, please seek medical attention because I am the zero on your roulette.
I) Refer to the previous scenario. Now the fate of the vessel may be prevented with your interventionhow and what might you attempt to do?
How? Naturally I will flip over the chessboard dramatically and effectively. Entirely provided I become God, everyone on board such a ship will be saved and guaranteed a place in the Golden Land. Any and most enemies will be discarded to the Mothership which will be annihilated by a black hole.
J) In ONE SENTENCE, with no usage of punctuation besides a single full-stop, summarize how you came to be where you are now in your world.
People suffered massive damage to their health in accordance with the Vengeance Method of Lerena Leigh Helena thereby giving them entrance into the afterlife.
K) Explain the 'Hyppopytaemonstrosesquipedalian Effect' in detail, suggesting how this effect might have influenced your life or the life of prominent beings, with references to external literature or personal experiences wherever possible.
Hilarious youth progresses, preserving on planes yearly to actively evaluate most observing natures stabbing through realistic organisms, systematically ejecting stupidity questioning unnecessarily intellectual people, especially driven authority living in a nutritious effect. This effect is otherwise known as The Law of Equivalent Exchange, which means some people will suffer for the success of others. Examples are stated throughout the Bible, the fandom Fullmetal Alchemist, and most well-known literature, stupid or otherwise.
L) The previous questions A to K are irrelevant to your final score in this exam. This question carries full marks. Now ask yourself a question and answer it. Take into account that the question you have created for yourself may be posed to other applicants as well to determine their final score.
[Question]: Who is the culprit?
[Answer]: Lecherous Chessboard. What? You thought I would just GIVE it to you?
END OF PAPER
(With a startled expression, it seemed as if the examinee was unsure whether she had met their criteria, for her answers made extremely no sense in context. The formulas she provided seemed heavily based on improvisation and random processing in her brain. Eventually they came to this conclusion, giving her a note to read on behalf of her obnoxious calculations:
Dear Lerena Leigh Helena,
Although we admire your creativity, these answers are complete bullshit. However, in retrospect, you would have passed, had you answered the questions being asked. We calculate that your only skill as a mage is to beat around the bush like a retarded reject. There is no possible way you could have arrived at these answers and still remain on topic. But we're unsure of whether to accept or deny you at this time, so please wait up to three years for processing. Originally we were going to fail you, but someone of your ridiculous functioning may be valuable to our cause. --Sincerely, School of the Appreciated Elite--)
