Does ANybody know which activities give you the most academics increases? I know studying at night is +2 and supposedly sunday studies give you +4 and th prodigy plattter gives you + 3. What about the Library and praying at the shrine?
Do the Quiz Game every Wednesday and Saturday (unless you're grinding Courage), study every night before bed (as long as you aren't tired), and stay awake in class. This should max you out before the Second Term, but definitely before the third exam.
Going to the movies with a couple people during the August film festival will also give you some points (I think Fuuka and Bebe, but I don't remember). Also, one of Elizibeth's Requests has you talking to teachers in the lounge at school for several days, so there's a few free points as well.
Study every night, abuse the bathroom/soft reset to get your tired/ill MC back in great shape, and get on those quiz games as soon as you see fit. Follow this, and you should have Max Academics 3+ months before the Max S.link guide requires you to.
Keep in mind that you can still top exams without meeting the requirements in the guide. Of course, it's random, and if you do meet the requirements, it's a guarantee. But I was 1 point below the required level stated in the guide for the final, and I still managed to top the class. Perhaps soft/resetting would work (someone can confirm, or correct me if I'm wrong, just personal observation), but you should have Max academics well before your 3rd exam, so I don't think it matters much. You just need to top one to open up the s.link so take your time.
