Persona games are masters at making us appreciate the mundane, mostly because every simple activity is an opportunity to improve yourself. Not just metaphorically, either. Much like other Persona games, Persona 3 Portable will test your knowledge to answer questions in the classroom, and on midterm and final exam questions throughout the school year. While some of these questions are easy if you’ve been following along in the lecture, some require a bit more outside knowledge. Our Persona 3 classroom answer guide will help you pick the correct responses from April to January.
Getting each question right increases your Charm — even if you’re telling Junpei the right answer. Doing well on the midterms and final exams means Mitsuru, your team’s de facto academic scold, will give you a special reward.
In chronological order, here are the classroom answers for Persona 3 Portable, which have not changed with its Steam, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation, and Switch ports. If you’re looking for guides for the Persona 4 Golden classroom answers, the Persona 5 classroom answers, or the Persona 5 Royal classroom answers, we have those as well.
