Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? is a charmingly humorous quiz game based on the popular TV franchise. Multiple-choice questions, true-or-false challenges, and minigames will test your proficiency in 24 different subjects. Faced with a tough question, you can always rely on your classmates for help.


Stage 1 – Play Exam Mode.



You will need to:
A. Use one avatar (who you will pick to be the A+ Student) to complete 10 perfect games in Exam Mode using the 3 cheats. It’s recommended to turn off sync Save Data and to use Cloud Save your game after successfully completing each game of Exam Mode. You will need to get all 11 questions correct per Exam Mode game. If you get a question wrong then redownload your Cloud Save and continue this process. Press “Circle” to access the Cheat Menu. You will need to use the cheats in the following order for each game:
1. The first Grade 1 question use “X” for “Ask the Class Cheat”.
2. The second Grade 1 question use “Square” for “Copy Cheat”.
3. The first Grade 2 question use “Triangle” for “New Question Cheat”.
Do not use the L1 or R1 during any of these games as this may nullify you earning the “Reference Checker” at the end of each game.

B. Using a different avatar you will need to play Exam Mode and get the first question wrong.
C. Repeatedly press L3 a few times during any game to make your Bobblehead wiggle.


Stage 2 – Play Study Mode.


You will need to:

A. Play one Study Mode game with only one avatar.
B. Play Study Mode with the maximum 8 avatars. Playing games this way will earn you the most experience called “Apple Points” to quickly unlock all the classmates, icons, question categories, grade levels, alternate outfits for the classmates, and all desk-related items. If you do not use any cheats for any of your players, you will more than likely earn “Independent Student” at the end of each game. However, if you find you are not then play Study Mode with only one avatar.

By the time you have unlocked the first Grade 5 set, you should have earned all 8 of the Prodigy Medals. Make sure that you vary each game to pick the different subject areas so that you cover all of them.
