The 'final exam' being to see if someone will suck up humiliation and not cause anyone any reverse humiliation. Like the hazing in fraternities and with squaddies, it's a test to see if you are willing to be mis-treated with a smile to show that you will not cause waves or be difficult.

Make sure everyone is whacked with a paddle so you share the secret shame of being whacked with a paddle. It's good for bonding.
