Class is a recurring event in the Persona series. The protagonists need to attend it every day during their school year.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Overview[edit | edit source]

On scheduled days, the protagonists will be asked a question from their head teacher, and answering correctly will reward them with a mild Social Stat boost.

Additionally, at certain times, the protagonists will have to take exams spanning in at least most of the week they're taking place on.

School is closed during Sundays and holidays.

Persona 3[edit | edit source]

Sleepiness[edit | edit source]

On certain events, while the teacher is giving off their lecture, the protagonist will become sleepy. Falling asleep will boost their physical condition by one stage, while staying up will have them continue listening to the lecture as usual, boosting their Knowledge stat.

Persona 5[edit | edit source]

Class Questions[edit | edit source]

On certain days, the respective teacher will ask the protagonist a question with 3 viable answers. The correct answers can be estimated via the Thieves Guild feature, which opens a poll on what other players have answered.

If the protagonist answers correctly, he'll be rewarded with a Social Stat boost (by a single note.) Generally, his Knowledge stat is boosted, but in Persona 5 Royal, on certain days, his Charm will increase instead. Those days are April 25th, June 20th, July 7th and January 11th. If he answers incorrectly, nothing happens.

The questions differ between Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal.

Exams[edit | edit source]

The protagonist will have to attend 4-day-long exams several times during the school year. In Persona 5, there are 4 exams in total: 2 in the first term, and 2 in the second term, with each being either mid-term or end-of-term.

Exam Period
First Mid-term 5/11 - 5/14
First End-of-term 7/13 - 7/16
Second Mid-term 10/17 - 10/20
Second End-of-term 12/20 - 12/23
Criteria[edit | edit source]

The result is determined by the protagonist's Knowledge stat, and, sometimes, the correct answers he gives during the examination. The criteria for scoring high goes up with each exam.

The questions that he needs to answer are often brought up in class beforehand, but unlike there, Thieves Guild cannot be used to estimate the correct answer during the examination period.

Rewards[edit | edit source]
Confidant Benefits[edit | edit source]

The exam results can grant several rewards. If the protagonist scores 1st place or Top 10, he'll receive 3 notes of Charm, and if he's above middle, it's only 2. Otherwise, there is no point gain.

Additionally, the exam results can boost the amount of Confidant points received while hanging out, similar to having a matching Arcana as the respective user. These multipliers stack. Upon seeing the test results, if the protagonist scores 1st on the exam, the multiplier will be x1.5 (same as matching Arcana boost), and if he scores top 10, it will be x1.2. Otherwise, there will be no boost. The effect only lasts until the results of the next exam, where the multiplier will be refreshed depending on the results. As there are no exams at the start of the game, there is no multiplier then.

These boosts only apply to Ryuji Sakamoto, Ann Takamaki, Makoto Niijima, Haru Okumura, Sojiro Sakura, Sadayo Kawakami and Sumire Yoshizawa (P5R).

Items from Sojiro[edit | edit source]

Additionally, talking to Sojiro after scoring Top 10 or higher on each exam will let the protagonist receive an item. The rewards can only be given on certain dates. The effects of the items and the periods vary between Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal:

Exam Reward Period
Name Effect Description
First Mid-term Tough Belt En+5 A belt for men who have the eye of the tiger. 5/20 - 5/27
First End-of-term Dandy Mirror +Repel Physical (med) A compact hand mirror used by a seasoned veteran. 7/19 - 7/26
Second Mid-term Leblanc Charm +Null Sleep Contains Boss's finest coffee beans. 10/24 - 10/31
Second End-of-term Boss Undies 12/22

Exam Reward Period
Name Effect Description
First Mid-term Tough Belt Defense Master A belt for men who have the eye of the tiger. 5/20 - 5/27
First End-of-term Dandy Mirror Counterstrike A compact mirror used by a seasoned veteran. 7/19 - 7/26
Second Mid-term Leblanc Charm Null Sleep Contains Boss's finest coffee beans. 10/24 - 10/31
Second End-of-term Boss Undies Endure Boss's select, game time underpants. 12/22 - 12/23

Dodging Chalk[edit | edit source]

On certain dates in class, Mr. Ushimaru will throw chalk at the protagonist. The days differ between Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal.

Date Games
P5 P5R
April 16th
May 6th
June 6th
June 21st
July 11th
September 2nd
October 15th
October 24th

By default, the protagonist will get hit, but if he manages to dodge it, he'll gain 2 notes of Charm. As April 16th is a tutorial event, the chalk cannot be dodged, although this no longer applies in New Game Plus.

Proficiency Rank Probability of avoiding
1 33%

3 66%

5 100%

Slack Off[edit | edit source]

For Kawakami's Confidant abilities, see Sadayo Kawakami → Confidant

As the protagonist starts Sadayo Kawakami's Confidant, they'll gain access to additional free time in Kawakami's class that will let them be able to perform certain activities. The days the protagonist will be able to perform these activities are always on specific days. Additionally, upon reaching Rank 5, Kawakami will grant the protagonist more free time, which she does by luring other teachers out of the protagonist's classes.

While free in class, the protagonist will be able to craft infiltration tools, read books, sleep or study. The activities function similarly to their normal counterparts, although there are some limitations. For insance, only 1 infiltration tool can be made at a time, and the protagonist will need to rank up his Proficiency 2 times to gain an additional attempt (Rank 3 gives 2 tries, and Rank 5 gives 3). In Persona 5, he will also gain 2 points of Proficiency at the end of the session, but that has been reduced to 1 in Persona 5 Royal. Additionally, studying boosts Knowledge by 2 points as usual, but the effects of the weather and from reading "Factorization Guide" are null.
