Ye Qingran looked as if she had not heard what they had said.
The students who had been muttering went silent.
After all, few of them dared to offend Ye Qingran.
When Hua Chi saw that Ye Qingran remained quiet, he thought that she was ashamed.
He could not help but stab her. “A good-for-nothing like you actually come to the competition room. If I were you, I would quit now so I wouldn’t humiliate myself.”
Ye Qingran turned to look at him. “Thank you for your reminder.”
Hua Chi was stunned. “Who reminded you?”
Ye Qingran sneered. “Weren’t you reminding me that your face is itchy and it’s time for me to slap your face to stop the itch?”
Hua Chi was furious. His face turned red and then white, looking ugly.
He gritted his teeth and said harshly, “Then just wait and see.”
“See what? Don’t look at me with that ugly face of yours. If you want to look, you should look at Mu Qingxue who’s sitting beside you.” Ye Qingran raised her eyebrows and the corners of her lips curled up in a sneer.
Mu Qingxue’s face darkened. “What does it have to do with me?”
Why did the guy have to mess with a woman? He really did not have any manners at all.
Ye Qingran said meaningfully, “Some people think that by hiding behind others, no one will know how dirty they are. But they will eventually get what they deserve.”
Mu Qingxue’s face turned red and then white.
She pouted with tears in her eyes. “Ye Qingran, you’re going too far.”
Other people spoke up for her, accusing Ye Qingran for going too far.
Hua Chi felt guilty, thinking that he had implicated Mu Qingxue. He stared at Ye Qingran furiously.
At that moment, the math teacher walked in.
She stood on the podium and asked the class monitor to hand out the test papers. “Twenty minutes. Hand it in when you’re done.”
As she spoke, her gaze swept across the class.
When she saw Ye Qingran sitting in the last row, her face darkened slightly. She was extremely unhappy that someone entered the class through connections.
At this moment, Ye Qingran was sitting there lazily, which made the teacher even angrier.
She could not help but lash out loudly, “Without good grades and not attentive in class, what are you doing here?”
The moment she said this, the students who had been absent-minded immediately sat up straight.
“Don’t be smug even if your grades are good, especially those who think that they can rest easy after doing well in one exam. If you fail the test, then get out of the class.”
Mu Qingxue, Hua Chi, and some other students sneered at Ye Qingran.
Sure enough, the teachers hated students who entered the class through connections.
Ye Qingran was going to get lost this time!
The test was one page with ten problems on it, and each problem had ten marks.
Although the problems were not all equations, there were multiple choice questions and fill-in-the-blank questions, but they were very difficulty.
It was a level more difficult than the review practice.
But if they could do these problems, then they’d master the skills needed for the review practice.
It was no wonder that everyone wanted to enter the competition class.
Some students quickly finished the test and handed them in.
The teacher marked them immediately.
Sometimes her face was very gloomy, and sometimes it suddenly became as bright as the sun.
The students all held their breaths, waiting for the results.
Soon, the papers were all handed in, and the teacher had finished marking them all.
Then she said with a gloomy face, “The test is not very difficult, but many people failed. Some problems are very basic and are phrased in a different way, but more than half of you got wrong answers.”
She picked up the papers and began to read out the scores. “Lin Weiwei 90 points.”
“Mo Xiaofan, 90 points.”
“Mu Qingxue, 80 points.”
Hearing her score, Mu Qingxue smiled and then glanced at Ye Qingran.
The scores were read from high to low, and until now, there was no Ye Qingran’s name. He must have gotten the lowest score.
Hua Chi did not do well this time. He only got 50 points.
Today’s questions were really too difficult for him.
Initially, he was very depressed, but when all the papers had been handed out and Ye Qingran did not get his, he was suddenly happy.
Ye Qingran must have gotten 0 points, which made the teacher so angry that she did not even want to give the paper to him.
Hua Chi smiled smugly.
At this moment, the teacher looked at them and waved the last test paper, saying with unconcealable joy. “Ye Qingran, 100 points.”
The students were astonished.
They looked at each other in disbelief.
Really? Ye Qingran, who had relied on connections to enter the class, had got all ten questions right. He got the first place, with a score higher than everyone else.
After a few seconds of silence, everyone burst into exclamation.
Hua Chi turned pale with fright!
Ye Qingran didn’t get 0 but 100 points?
How was this possible? This was absolutely impossible.
Someone got suspicious, “Maybe he cheated?”
“How? No one else got 100 points. Whom could he copy from?”
Ye Qingran stood up and walked to the podium to take the test paper.
When she passed Hua Chi, she said lightly, “Here’s the question. Is your face swollen now?”
Hua Chi stared at her angrily.
How could a loser like Ye Qingran know how to solve these problems?
That’s right, this morning, Zi Xia gave her a math exercise book.
These problems must be in that exercise book, and there were even answers.
With a sneer, he spat out the words from between his teeth, “These are only ten problems. So what if you got 100? I know that you did them in the practice book. If you’re really good, go and get the first place in the next monthly exam.”
When others heard this, they had an expression of “So that’s how it is”.
After all, how could a bad student score higher than them? So this was the reason.
Everyone calmed down.
But the math teacher was so happy that she could not stop smiling.
Exercise book? The problems were all written by her. They were more difficult than ordinary grade 12 problems, so no one could find these problems in the exercise books.
She gave the test paper to Ye Qingran, but she did not let her go back to her seat. Instead, she let Ye Qingran tell the class about her solution to the last problem.
Ye Qingran had solved it in a very unique way.
The teacher had not expected that someone would get full marks. If Ye Qingran got proper training, she’d help the school enter the top three in the National League this year.
Ye Qingran did not want to explain. “Ma’am, I’m afraid that I can’t explain. After all, my results are usually not very good.”
The math teacher seemed to have completely forgotten what she had just said. “No one is born a good student. It’s all done step by step.”
Ye Qingran was distressed. “I am afraid that I’ll get smug if you let me explain the solution to the class.”
