| This level is a major plot point!
This level is a major level in the game. After you finish the level, you may be able to access other characters, minigames, and tunnels. Most of them also include a cutscene.
This is level 9 of the N-Tunnel.
This level is best played with the Runner, due to her average speed. You need to be very careful not to jump off the slow Conveyor tiles too early and watch out for the changes of your speed when you are running on the large Conveyor tile-made platforms. When they are slowing you, jump at the last moment, and try to make that a large jump. But when they are increasing your speed, try to jump a bit earlier instead.
The Student is also a good choice, due to the fact that she can control her jump distance through her special power. You can use this to your advantage, and control where and when do you land. Be noted that when you want to land on a large platform, try to aim for the middle. This can help by reducing the risk for missing the platform. Also, don't stay in the air too long. You will flip upside down and fall into the space above the ceiling.
There is a cutscene that featured in this level after you beat it. More information can be seen in this page.
After beating this level, a cutscene will begin showing a conversation between the Skater and the Student. The Skater comments that "It's nice not to have school." The Student hesitates at first, then responds that she picked her name because she enjoys school. The Skater asks why she didn't choose to go back to the Planet, if she likes school. The Student responds, "School can wait. Science will not," and goes on to say that she could be remembered in history if she figures out how the Tunnels work, but someone else will figure it out first if she's too slow. The Skater suggests that she call herself "the Scientist," and then "the Mad Scientist", but the Student tells him that the former is already taken, and refuses the latter. There is an awkward pause, then the Student asks the Skater the same question; "Why don't you head back?" The Skater says that school is boring, so he's just gonna skip a couple years. The Student tells him "That isn't how it works..." but lets it go so she can get back to work. The Skater says that he needs to get back to work too. When the Student asks "You have work to get back to?" he tells her, "Skating practice. Close enough," and skates off in the other direction.
