Default Complex Form Numbering Question

This may not be so complex for some of you, but I am having a hard time with it. Here is what I am trying to do.

I need some help with numbering a document. This document contains 4 versions of a college exam. Each exam is 14 pages within the PDF, so the total number of pages in this template is 56 pages.

On the first page of each exam is a space for the exam number, below that is the Test Form Number, which is static.

Something like this:
Page 1
Exam #: 0001
Test Form 1
Page 15
Exam #: 0002
Test Form 2
Page 29
Exam #: 0003
Test Form 3
Page 43
Exam #: 0004
Test Form 4

Then it cycles the Test Form numbers, but the exam numbering continues to escalate.

Page 1
Exam #: 0005
Test Form 1
Page 15
Exam #: 0006
Test Form 2
Page 29
Exam #: 0007
Test Form 3
Page 43
Exam #: 0008
Test Form 4

I was thinking about creating a data file that would include the number of exams the professor would like to create. That number would equal the variable “Exam #”. I know I can create a sequential numbering rule...but, how would I get that rule to work across the multiple Test Form Numbers (in this example 4 different test forms). Does anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this? Please let me know, thanks!
