Persona 4 Golden classroom answers and exam answers

Even kids with supernatural powers have to get good grades

Getting the right Persona 4 Golden classroom answers boosts your stats, makes you popular, and even earns you a fat cash reward if you ace your exams.

You face several midterms and finals during your year in Inaba, with an extra set if you make the right choices and unlock the Golden ending in January and February.

Like Persona 5’s classroom quizzes, though, Persona 4’s surprise questions are filled with random trivia and things most people wouldn’t be expected to know. Even if you do know the answers, Golden plays a cruel trick and won't let you ace every exam until New Game+, when you can start with maxed out personal stats.

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