You've seen the show and now it's time to put your own brain to the test! Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader puts you, your knowledge, and your ability to pull random facts out from the cobwebs of your brain to the test as you answer 11 questions per show, each ranging from a 1st-grade level up to a 6th-grade level. You won't be by yourself though, as you'll have a classroom of 6 5th-grade students to help you cheat your way to victory by answering the questions for you. Well, as best they can at least. Will you be able to make it through all 6 rounds without getting any questions wrong? Or will you put on your dunce cap and claim the title of Not Smarter Than a 10-year-old? There's only one way to find out!
Good news players who haven't been to 5th grade in 20+ years! You can cheese your way through the questions in this game. In a perfect world, 1st graders nowadays would still be learning their basic reading and writing skills, but apparently, they've moved on to bigger things, like super rare constellations and not-so-basic level chemical compounds. This game does not have a timer for the questions and once they're asked, you can take as long as your heart desires to answer. This means you can easily skedaddle over to the world wide web and look up any questions you might be stuck on (without having to pause the game), making this by far one of the easier trivia-oriented games available. Depending on how you play will determine what your overall grind will be like, so read below for the recommended steps on how to make your path to platinum as non-trivial as possible.
Step 1: Play a Minimum of 10 Games of Exam Mode Getting No More Than 3 Questions Wrong
Exam Mode is the single-player mode of the game and is played just as the show was; you play until you either win or get a question wrong. In this Mode, you'll be going for your A+ Grade for "A+" Student . As mentioned just above, you can search the internet for the answers to any questions you're not completely sure of, which will aid in the "no more than 3 questions wrong". The A+ Grade will take a minimum of 10 games to get (giving no flubs happen along the way) since you need to answer 100 questions and each game consists of 11. If you don't get the required rating in this step, you will have 7 more opportunities to get it in Step 2, but it's honestly a lot easier to do solo. Don't use any of the cheats available in the game (where the students help you) and you'll be guaranteed to get the "Independent Student" award every game, whether you win or not. Don't worry about the "Reference Checker" title here as it's insanely easier to get in Study Mode. This step will also make a decent dent in your progress towards Graduated , making the grind in Step 2 far less tedious.
As long as you complete your games to 100 questions without getting more than 3 wrong, you will earn:
In The Honor Roll
Smarter than a 5th Grader
Step 2: Play At Least 10 Study Mode Games and Grind to 6th Grade
Again, if you happened to miss more than 3 questions in Step 1 and missed out on your A+ grade, you'll have 7 more opportunities to get it here. Study Mode is the multiplayer mode of the game and allows you to play with 1-8 players. Only one controller is needed for this so don't worry about needing any extra peripherals. To maximize your point payout, you should only play 8-player games except for when you go for Exam Practice (that requires 1 player only in this Mode). The more questions you get right, the higher your point payout will be and all player's points count towards your total, so feel free to use the Google/Bing trick even through this step (though you'll be wanting to get as many questions right as possible anyways for Prodigy of all Trades ). If you missed "A+" Student , try and have any (or even all) of the 7 avatars that you did not play with in Step 1 go for it. You'll also want one player to use all 3 of their cheats every game for 10 games so they earn the Research Checker medal at the end of the game. Be sure to also have one player answer the very first question wrong and have any player bonk their bobblehead a few times to clean up some of the miscellaneous trophies easily. These 8-player games can be a bit time-consuming, but it makes the grind to 6th grade a lot quicker than playing solo.
After this step, you will earn:
Prodigy of all Trades
5th Grade .
