Note: Should you accidentally, in your rush to please Erlene, hand over your 12 sheets of vellum before changing to one of the jobs listed, your information will be saved, and once you return as a blm, blu, rdm or smn you will be given another opportunity to use your "2-hour" and achieve level 1 Scholar status by viewing the rest of the cut scene. 2 people from my linkshell alone have gone through this little snafu, so I suspect it may be quite common for those who do not have a mage or smn job high enough to start the quest. Good luck!

You must have a level 30 Job ~~ANY JOB~~ to flag this quest so if your RDM BLM SMN or BLU isn't level 30 Flag the first two cutscenes then come back with your selected mage or summoner job to get the final cutscene. I flagged the quest with level 31 monk came back with level 22 summoner used 2hr ability and was able to get Scholar job. Also, an easy way to unlock Scholar if you have a low level mage job that you need to use its 2 hour for: If you have signed up for a nation in the past, use the Campaign Arbitar to teleport back to Bastok (S), San d'Oria (S), or Windurst (S). Next, change jobs to RDM, BLM, SMN, or BLU and teleport back to The Eldieme Necropolis (S) and head to (J-8).

Note: A point of clarification, you do not have to be your mage job while turning in the Vellum. You can turn them in on a 30+ job, then come back to use your 2-hour for the last cutscene.
