If you want to be the top student in Gekkoukan High School in Persona 3 Reload, Academics is the social stats you need to focus on. Between Charm, Courage, and Academics, the latter is arguably the most important since maxing out Academics and topping the class exams is a requirement to start your social link with Mitsuru Kirijo, and let's be honest, that's what you really want, don't you?
Thankfully, Mitsuru's social link isn't available until the second half of November, so there's plenty of time to max your Academics. In this guide, we discuss some of the easiest ways to increase your Academics quickly in Persona 3 Reload.
How To Quickly Raise Academics In Persona 3 Reload
One of the quickest and easiest ways to increase your Academics in Persona 3 Reload is to stay awake in class. Occasionally, you will get an option to either stay awake or close your eyes during a lecture, and choosing the former will increase your Academics. Additionally, paying attention to the lecture will help you in exams, as the questions are almost always from these sessions.
If you have plenty of money to spend, we recommend eating at the Wakatsu Kitchen in Iwatodia Strip Mall. While the Prodigy Platter can increase your Academics, occasionally, they will have a special dish on sale that you shouldn't sleep on. You can also play the quiz game at the Arcade in Paulownia Mall to raise your Academics. Lastly, you can offer money at the Naganaki Shrine. Doing so has the chance to increase your Academics.
If you don't have plenty of money to spend, you can work part-time at the Screenshot movie theater in Port Island Station. Doing so will increase your Academics and Courage. You can also study every day after school in your bedroom or in the library, granted you don't go to Tartarus or when there are any story events in motion.
These are some of the most efficient ways to increase your Academics in Persona 3 Reload. Do note that several story moments will automatically increase your Academics as well, such as attending summer school. During summer, you can also attend the film festival at the Screenshot movie theater where watching certain films will raise your Academics.
Rinse and repeat the aforementioned activities, and rest assured, your Academics in Persona 3 Reload will be maxed out sooner rather than later.
