Persona 5 Royal Classroom Test Answers Guide

School sucks, but our Persona 5 Royal classroom answers guide makes exams suck less.

School sucks, but our Persona 5 Royal classroom answers guide makes exams suck less.

Living a normal student life means giving plenty of classroom answers in Persona 5 Royal, because naturally, your teachers put you in the spotlight instead of your peers. Yet you won’t just feel smart if you answer questions correctly. You’ll literally get smarter with every right answer.

Your Knowledge stat gets a bonus point for each correct answer, or two bonus points if you’re using the Fortune Confidant trick to boost social stats. Since some Confidants require higher Knowledge to progress, including the Justice Confidant needed for Persona 5 Royal’s true ending, getting the classroom answers right is definitely worth your time.

If you’re coming into Royal off vanilla Persona 5, it’s worth noting that the questions and answers are different between the games — hence our Persona 5 Royal classroom answers guide.

Persona 5 Royal: Classroom Test Answers Guide

Keep in mind you likely won’t make it to the top of the class in the first two Persona 5 Royal’s exams if this is your first time playing the game. Acing exams requires rank four Knowledge, even if you get all the answers right.

It’s just not possible to do for your first exam and not practical to devote all your spare time to Knowledge alone. But getting all the questions right puts you in the top 10, boosting Charm with +2 and earning a special reward from Sojiro if you talk to him after seeing the results.
