Young men interested in passing the Civil Service exam would usually be of the higher middle class because you would have to hire a Tudor in order to have a chance at passing the exam, however anyone who was able to afford education was able to learn. As in earlier periods, the focus of the examination was classical Confucian texts, while the bulk of test material centered on the Four Books outlined by Zhu Xi in the 12th century.[2] Ming era examinations were perhaps more difficult to pass since the 1487 requirement of completing the "eight legged essay", which was based from essays off progressing literary trends.[3] The exams increased in difficulty as a student progressed from the local level on up, and appropriate titles were accordingly awarded successful applicants. Officials were classified in nine hierarchic grades, each grade divided into two degrees, with ranging salaries (nominally paid in piculs of rice) according to their rank.[4] While provincial graduates who were appointed to office were immediately assigned to low-ranking posts like the county graduates, those who passed the palace examination were awarded a jinshi ('presented scholar') degree and assured a high-level position.[5] In 276 years of Ming rule and ninety palace examinations, the number of doctoral degrees granted by passing the palace examinations was 24,874.
