Institute-style buyback scenario

A ransom in the style of the institute begins from the moment the groom arrives at the narrowed house. It is possible to conduct exams on the stairs or on the floors on the way to the bride. The ideal option for such a ransom is the bride’s apartment. At the entrance are girlfriends-students who are concentrating on repeating the material they have passed and do not pay attention to the students who arrived - the future husband and his retinue.

On the door of the apartment is a sign on which it is written in capital letters: «Silence. There is an exam!» After the arrival of the main applicant, the door «cabinet» a lady opens and leaves with a serious expression on her face. Having looked at the list, the examiner says:

- The next incoming - (last name of the future husband). Come in!

Style plate: silence - exam is coming

The groom is trying to get into the apartment with his friends. Teacher with rigor:

- Would you like to pass the exams together? Then hand over all the cheat sheets!

A woman takes a bag of sweets from a witness. Married with friends passes to the apartment where the examiners are sitting at the table, whispering among themselves and squinting at new students.

The chairman of the commission rises and says:

- So, dear applicant, in order to become a student of the Institute of Family Relations, it is necessary to pass several exams in important subjects. The teachers will ask questions, and your task is to give the maximum number of correct answers and successfully pass all the tests, because there can’t be a retake.

The groom sits down on a chair and begins a large entrance exam. The first subject in which knowledge is tested will be the great and mighty Russian language. The Russian language teacher takes out tickets for his subject and offers to pull out 3 of them:

- Well, first of all, you need to find errors in the offers written on the tickets that you have chosen.

The applicant is trying to find mistakes by looking for grammar or spelling. But everything is much simpler - this is a test of knowledge regarding the bride. for instance, «In this room there is a girl with brown eyes and light brown braids.» (incorrectly written eye or hair color).

If the groom does not manage to find a mistake, he will have to give a bribe. At the end of the test, the teacher says:

- Well, the first exam passed successfully, but there are still many tests ahead!

The next subject to be dealt with by the groom is history. A history teacher:

- Hello student. You have to answer a few questions that relate to the biography of your bride (questions: the year the bride entered the institute, the birthday of the future mother-in-law, etc.). For the wrong answer, you have to pay with chocolate. I ask you to get a ticket.

The groom pulls out tickets if he does not know the correct answer, puts a chocolate bar on top of the ticket. At the end of the exam, the teacher says:

- Congratulations! Another stage will pass! Another positive mark will appear in your record.!

Next, the future student of the Institute of Family Relations will have to pass an exam in music. Teacher:

- You are given 3 musical instruments, playing on which you must perform your favorite song of the bride. Let friends help you.

Music exam

The groom takes one instrument for himself, and gives the other two to his friends. Trying to get in time and play a melody, they perform the bride’s favorite song. It can be a guitar, accordion, maracas, etc..


- It was just amazing, maybe not so pretty, but fun - that's for sure! Keep your record!

- Let's check your skills in drawing (says a teacher of fine arts). You have to draw a symbol of love. At your disposal whatman paper, pencils. Show what you can do!

The groom draws what he considers a symbol of love (heart, pigeons, etc.). Skeptical looking at «piece of art» young student, the teacher says:

- Each has its own symbol of love, so a priori your image is worthy of praise. Let's record, get a well-deserved five!

Next comes the math teacher:

- The previous trials were too easy for you, it’s so easy to cope with my subject. I have a flower with petals, on each petal numbers are written that have one way or another related to the bride. Your task is to give the correct answer, what kind of number is written on the petal.

An example of numbers that are written on the petals can be the bride's height in mm, year, date of acquaintance, apartment number and more.

The groom is trying to give the correct answers, but, as the teacher suggested, to cope with the tasks is not so easy, so the groom is forced to seek help from the bridesmaids or the teacher, after giving a bribe.

Math exam

At the end of the test, the teacher says:

- Yes, as expected, everything was not easy, but you successfully coped with the task. You deservedly get your top five and you can start the last test.

The final exam is literature. It can be carried out in several forms:

Student must read romantic verse for bride.

The future spouse should remember the most tender and affectionate words that can only be said as a compliment to her lover or insert missing words into phrases. For example: what a great happiness it is ... and to be ... (To love, to loved ones).

Having successfully passed the tests, the groom receives a well-deserved five in the set-off.

The dean gets up and says:

- Congratulations (last name of the groom)! You have successfully passed the tests, having received only positive marks, so I am very happy to present you with a student card, which indicates that you are enrolled in the institution of family relations. All your life you have to learn, gaining new knowledge, overcoming various life obstacles, and your partner in this life path will be (name of the bride).

Having said this, the dean takes the bride out. The groom receives the most coveted, for which he went through so many trials! This ransom in the style of the institute ends.
