Persona 3 answers: All classroom questions and exam solutions

You won't save the world through education, but at least acing tests makes you look good

Getting the classroom and exam answers right in Persona 3 is a handy way to boost your charm and get a few other nice bonuses in Atlus’ RPG.

However, the questions aren’t exactly common knowledge so we’ve put together this guide with all the Persona 3 answers.

If you want to ace every exam though, you’ll have to replay the game at least once on New Game+ when your stats carry over. Unlike other Persona games, Persona 3 gates the top marks behind a high knowledge stat.

Now you don't need a Vita to play the best Persona games!
