"Fate Testarossa Takes Examination" (「フェイト・テスタロッサ 試験を受ける」 Feito Tesutarossa Shiken wo Ukeru) is chapter 2 of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's THE COMICS.
At some point between Nanoha and A's, Fate takes her Contract Mage examination on Lindy's recommendation. Her main examiner is Admiral Leti Lowran, who browses through Fate's excellent academic record while she and Arf prepare for the first test, ritual weather control. Fate passes her first exam flawlessly and after an hour break takes the second one, in one-on-one combat. Her examiner in it is Chrono and Fate resolves to win against him. After a quick exchange of ranged attacks, Fate manages to get behind Chrono but before she can attack, she is captured by his Bind-type spell and loses. Fate believes she has failed the exam, but Chrono explains that she wasn't expected to win, just to perform to the best of her abilities. Thus, she enters the third and final stage of the exam, a team battle with Arf, which she completes perfectly, earning the title of an AAA-ranked Contract Mage.
