On the September 15 episode of “Idol School,” the students continued their final examination performances and the current top nine was revealed.

This week, the show aired performances by the teams performing Apink’s “No No No,” GFRIEND’s “Rough,” and S.E.S’s “I’m Your Girl.” As with last week, the teams were advised by members of the girl groups who had performed the original tracks, and the student who came in No. 1 in each team rose three ranks.
The “No No No” team consisted of students Choo Won Hee, Yoo Ji Na, Lee Da Hee, Bae Eun Young, and Noh Ji Sun. Noh Ji Sun came in first place in the group, therefore earning the benefit in the ranks.
