Persona 4 Class Answers Guide: All Exam and Class Questions

School sucks, but our Persona 4 class answers and exam answers guide is here to help you ace every exam.

Playing as high school students in RPGs is nothing new, but Persona 4 Golden — like other modern Persona games — takes it a step further and actually makes you go to school. That means answering random questions from your teachers and taking exams. If you haven't studied, don't worry. Our classroom answers guide is here to provide all the Persona 4 class answers and Persona 4 exam answers.

Even with our handy cheat sheet, you’ll still need to read books to increase your Knowledge stat in the game itself. Otherwise, you won’t manage to score in the highest percentile on your exams, regardless of getting the answers right.

Finally, your classmates will occasionally call on you for help with a question. Answer it correctly to boost Expression and your S. Link levels with that friend.

Persona 4 May Midterm Exams: 5/9-5/12

The midterms are mostly comprised of questions you already answered earlier in the term, plus some extra questions based on topics covered during the term that weren't related to questions.

However, you won't be able to pass the final day of the exam until New Game+, since it requires a Level 4 Knowledge stat. Keep in mind as well that you can't do anything else during the exam period.

Midterms 5/9

  • Question: What is it called when muscles grow after exercise?
  • Answer: Overcompensation

Midterms 5/10

Midterms 5/12

You don't have to answer anything here, but again, unless you're on New Game+, you can't earn the top spot on the exams.

Still, you'll land in the Top 10 assuming you followed this guide. After the exam scores are posted on May 19, talk to your teacher, Dojima, and Nanako for some extra rewards. If you did end up in the Top 10, you'll get +2 for each Social Link as well, +3 if you do manage to land in the top spot.
