According to the scenario, an assistant is promoted to associate when a majority of the higher ranking staff vote for them. Both the partners H & R and the associate O rank higher than than the assistants. So to get promoted, an assistant just needs 2 out of those 3 votes. J can't get promoted in that first round because he can't get votes from O or H. But every other assistant has the potential to get the 2 out of 3 votes they need to be promoted. R doesn't vote for L or S, but both H and O could vote for L and S.
They can always throw a rarer game type into the mix on any given exam. Even if it's a familiar type, they can give you rules or restrictions that you haven't seen before that may be tricky. The best thing you can do is to practice as many examples of games as you can and have a strategy for how to approach games that seem unfamiliar to you (e.g., leave them for last, diagram what you can, go back to your diagram if you get to the questions and realize you've misunderstood a key rule, etc.).
Hope this helps!
