You can think of Persona 3 as the entry in the series that helped to define and set the template that later Persona titles would use. That includes having the characters periodically attend class, having the player offer up school test answers - and getting those answers right carries a few rewards that you’ll want to nab.

This page offers up all of the Persona 3 Portable school answers and test solutions, and pairs well with our Persona 3 Portable Social Link guide, which features all the answers for each of the game’s major relationships. Meanwhile, however, here’s the school answers:

Persona 3 Portable School Answers: Solutions for every Pop Quiz Question & Exam

As is series tradition, there's a whole set of Persona 3 Portable School Answers you'll need to ace every class quiz and exam - and we've got 'em all.

If you’ve played the later Persona games and are returning to Persona 3 Portable with the new remaster, the way school works will be familiar: as the story winds on, every now and then a teacher will ask you a question in class - or Junpei will need your help. Knowing the Persona 3 Portable answers will let you get every question right. 

There’s no penalty for getting these school questions wrong, but there are rewards for getting them right. Specifically, each question answered correctly will impress your classmates, in turn raising your Charm social stat.

In addition, you’ll sometimes be promised a reward from Mitsuru for doing well in your exams. Exam results are determined by two factors: several questions you manually answer, and a stat check against your Academics social stat. 

While this guide is specifically written for Persona 3 Portable, the school answers are largely the same for every version of the game, meaning this will work for the vanilla game and Persona 3 FES, too.

Ended up on the wrong game? Don't panic! We also have the test answers for the other Persona games: hit the link for the Persona 4 Golden School Answers, Persona 5 Royal School Answers, and even the vanilla Persona 5 Test Solutions.
