The quiz is free to play and is said to be sponsored by the Academy. The player must answer ten consecutive questions correctly to win. Each of the four terminals have different sets of questions. The answers are given by selecting the correct button on the controller. The questions are asked randomly and can range from basic knowledge of the world of Final Fantasy XIII to the trivial and occasionally are based simply on random chance.

The terminals can be found on the streets in Academia, two in New Town, one in Grand Avenue, and one outside the Academy Headquarters.
