Persona 5 Royal Answers: all school quiz questions, exams and tests listed

Answering questions correctly in school can raise your stats and carry other useful benefits.

The way this works is simple. As you work through P5R's story, you'll occasionally be asked questions in school at 'random' by the teacher - though in the game, these aren't random but are set events on certain dats. In addition to this, at some points you'll have to sit exams, which feature a mix of all-new questions and flashbacks to early class questions. Knowing the complete set of Persona 5 Royal answers will make your life much easier.

Getting questions right will raise your Knowledge stat, and certain questions will also raise other stats that are all-important for maxing out your relationships as detailed in our full P5 and P5R confidant guide, some of which are now required to get the P5R true ending. Knowledge isn’t just power, but raises your popularity. Your knowledge stat also governs how well you do in the exams that you don’t have direct control over.

As previously mentioned, Persona 5 Royal has completely different school questions and school answers - if you want the answers for vanilla Persona 5. We've also got a page on all the P5R Crossword answers, if you also want help there. Otherwise, here’s all the P5R school quiz and exam questions and answers:
