The Academy continues into its third week on TVB Jade at 9pm, Monday to Friday. Every Monday, we will publish the synopses of the week's episodes.

Episode 11 (April 25)

Lam and Fa go on a shopping spree on pay day.

Yuen almost hits Fa with his car and he makes it up to her by buying her clothes. Fa is impressed by Yuen, Lam's childhood friend.

Lam notices that her classmate's siblings crave French fries but cannot afford them. She feels bad about her extravagance and decides to stop using her parents' supplementary credit card.

Keung finds Kiu's wallet and brings it to Kiu's flat with Man. They are surprised to learn that Kiu and Sing share a flat. They think Sing favours Kiu.

The cadets are divided into three teams for orienteering training. Man is Team A's leader, and not long after they set off, Kiu goes missing.

Man is punished for negligence.

Episode 12 (April 26)

Man finally finds Kiu and accuses him of deliberately creating trouble - only to find out later that their instructor was actually trying to test their team spirit.

Man leads the team down a wrong path and Kiu doubts his ability and the two get into a big row.

Sing decides to appoint someone else as team leader.

After the outdoor adventure, Sing and Kwan have come to the conclusion that Man and Kiu are too self-centred and constantly want to win.

Episode 13 (April 27)

Lam has problems during swimming and life-saving training and turns to Kiu for help.

Yuen asks Lam out on a date but she turns him down. She asks Kiu to give her swimming lessons. Yuen invites Fa out instead.

Lai sells her valuables at Fa's second-hand shop so she can have money to go out with her friends.

Episode 14 (April 28)

Man feels more than ever the need to bring his parents back together because of what Lai's doing. He invites Wah to his flat but is surprised to see him leave with a grim look after a brief talk with Sing.

Thinking that Sing asked Wah to leave, Man accuses him of ruining his family, which made Ting slap him. Sing challenges Man to a boxing match.

In the boxing ring, Sing lands two powerful punches and tells Man that the pain he has caused Ting is even more potent than those blows. Man finally realises what he's done.
