Thanks to multiple re-releases on new platforms, Persona 5 Royal is more popular than ever. While this super-stylish turn-based RPG has plenty of action, a huge chunk of the game comes from improving yourself via tests. That’s sometimes quite literal, as you can boost your knowledge by answering questions correctly in classroom tests.

For every question you get right, your knowledge stat will grow by a point. Additionally, if you perform admirably on exams, it will greatly increase your charm stat and propel you further up the social ladder. Here’s what you need to know in order to graduate from class clown to know-it-all.

Amongst the wide swath of alterations made for Persona 5 Royal, the class quizzes have been completely overhauled. Even if you aced every exam in the first game, you might not be quite ready for the new challenges available in Royal. Every question is slightly different, and sometimes you'll need to help Ann answer questions as well. Atlus has also added additional questions for Royal's third semester.

You're going to need a bit of help if you want to prove you're too cool for school. We've got all the answers right here. If you're looking for a specific one, press command+F on your computer and enter the date you're stuck on.

Now, let's make you the smartest man at Shujin!

Snoozy school days.
