First High also boasts the most difficult entrance examination among the Nine High Schools.
In this school where only elites are accepted, right at the start of enrollment, the students are already divided into high achievers and low achievers. First High currently accepts 200 new students per year. Both Course 1 and 2 will have 100 students each and there are 4 classes of Course 1 students and 4 classes of Course 2 students. Since April 2096, for 2nd & 3rd Year students, First High has 4 classes of Course 1, 3 classes of Course 2 and 1 class of Magic Engineering (since the new academic year which started in April 2096). However, as of April 2098, the Course 2 system was abolished due to Shiba Tatsuya's achievements whilst at school shedding doubt onto the validity of the system.
Magic education is a trial-and-error thing and accidents, which go beyond the level of minor mishaps, can easily happen directly through magic slip-ups from practice training and experiments. Students sometimes lose the ability to use magic after such accidents. Such vacant places are filled up by Course 2 Students as replacements. Although accidents resulting in deaths or handicapped bodies have been eradicated due to an accumulation of know-how, the number of students who drop out being unable to use magic is not small.
Final exams for magic high schools include theory and practical skills examinations in magical subjects. Language arts, math, science, sociology and other mundane topics are graded based on daily homework. As it is an institution that focuses on high-quality training for Magicians, so from the school's perspective, having the students focus too much on subjects outside of magic is redundant.
- Main Article: Blooms
Course 1 students, referred to unofficially as 'Blooms' at First High, are the students who topped the entrance exam for the Magic High School, primarily scoring higher in practical skills which are considered more important than theory and carry heavier weighting in the exam scores.
- Main Article: Weeds
Course 2 students, mockingly referred to as 'Weeds' at First High, are people who succeeded to enter the Magic High School, but were lacking in practical skills compared to their Course 1 counterparts. Due to the lack of teachers, they are forced to learn with the use of computer lessons rather than an educator. Due to the second courses incorporation into the school been rushed the school was unable to get the school emblem embroidered on the extra uniforms in time which caused the two courses to unintentionally have distinctly different uniforms and were subsequently left different in following years. This course was finally abolished in the April of 2098 due to the overachievements of one of its members.
