You could get a perfect score-1500 points. No one ever gotten this-well, except for some kids a few years ago.
If you score between 1450 and a 1499 you'll get instant access to six years of high school and then four at the top universities in the republic: Drake, Stanford, and Brenan. Then the congress hires you and you make lots of money.
you get a good sore, somewhere between 1250 and 1449 points. You get to continue on to high school, and then you're assigned to a college.
You squeak by with a score between 1000 and 1249 points. Congress bars you from high school. You join the poor, like my family. You'll probably either drown while working the water turbines or get steamed to death in the power plants.
You fail. It's almost always the slum-sector kids who fail. If you're in this unlucky category, the republic sends officials to your family's home. They make your parents sign a contract giving the government full custody over you. They say that you've been sent away to the republic's labor camp and that your family will never see you again
An inferior child with bad genes is no use to the country. If your lucky, the congress will let you die without first sending you to the labs to be examined for imperfections.
