    During your playthrough of Persona 5 Royal, you’ll be able to level up five Social Stats. These are Knowledge, Guts, Charm, Kindness, and Proficiency. Each Stat has five Ranks, which you can see below.

    StatRank 1Rank 2Rank 3Rank 4MAX Rank

    As the leader of the Phantom Thieves, it doesn’t hurt to be a well-rounded student. Whether you’re being called on in class or taking an exam, answering the game’s general knowledge questions correctly is an easy way to raise your Knowledge stat.

    On certain days, Ann will beg you for help after being called on in class. Answering these questions correctly will grant an additional boost to your Charm stat.

    Certain Confidants will require you to have reached a specific Rank in your Social Stats to progress. Having high Knowledge is vital for your relationships with Goro Akechi, Makoto Niijima, and Hifumi Togo.

    Other ways to boost your Knowledge stat include doing Crossword Puzzles at Leblanc or playing shogi with Hifumi. You can also study at Leblanc or at the school library. During exam season, some of your friends may also reach out for a study session or two.

    Each time you answer a question correctly in class, you’ll receive some Knowledge points. Certain questions will show up on exams in May, July, October, and December. To ace your exams, you must get every question correct and have a high enough Knowledge Rank.

    Doing well on your exams will also prompt Sojiro to give you some rewards. Be sure to chat with him after getting your results to snag your accessories!
