    I am doing a reread and got to Nyneave’s testing. It struck me how different it is from Morraine’s testing in New Spring. Moraine has to learn a hundred weaves by heart. Sheriam is shocked when Nyneave tells her she channeled in the ter’angreal and says this wasn’t done since it was first discovered and they were trying to figure out how it worked. Moraines testing seems to be one conintuous series of episodes, Nyneave enters and leaves three times. Is this just a glaring and unusual inconsistency or am I missing something obvious?

    Nynaeve’s testing in the beginning of the series is for the rank of Accepted, and Moiraine’s in New Spring is for the rank of Aes Sedai. :)

    I kind of wish we had more information about the testing itself. From New Springs it comes off as the Aes Sedai that are preforming the testing right have complete control on how difficult it can be for a Sister to pass or possible fail. With Moiraine's test it was only a small window into what they may encounter in the test.
