Just like in real life, homework in the Sims 4 is a boring chore and a necessary evil, unlike other fun activities such as writing music, redesigning your house, or diving underwater as a mermaid. As long as your sim is studying, they’ll be doing homework.
This guide will show you some tips and tricks that will get your sim to finish their homework more quickly.
Sims 4: How to Do Homework: Children and Teenagers
This part of our “Sims 4: How to Do Homework” guide is dedicated to child and teenage sims.
If you want your child sim to perform well in school, you need to make sure they do their homework every day after school. They also need to go to school in a good mood.
Learning how to do homework in The Sims 4 is quite easy. Child sims will have an orange homework book in their inventory while Teenager sims will have a blue homework book in their inventory.
If, for whatever reason, you can’t find your sim’s homework book in their inventory, you can buy a new copy via the “purchase books” option that appears when you click on a bookshelf.
Your sims will have new homework every day from Monday to Friday. Doing homework in the Sims 4 is as simple as clicking on the homework in your sim’s inventory and choosing “Do homework.”
If you want to speed up the process, you can get an adult sim to help with the homework. Click on the sim you want to help and choose “Help with homework.” This will significantly speed things up.
If you want to boost your sim’s school performance, you can choose to do extra credit after finishing the homework. Select “Do extra credit” after completing the regular homework.
This will give your sim a boost for the next time they go to school. However, this option will only be available if your sim has a B or higher in school.
Another way to speed things up is to level all four of your child skills to level 3. This will unlock the option to “Breeze through homework.”
Getting your sim’s skills to level 7 will unlock an even faster option called “Dominate homework.”
The only thing to note here is that the aforementioned options are only available for child sims.
Sims 4: How to Do Homework at University
This part of our “Sims 4: How to Do Homework” guide is dedicated to university students.
Going to university is part of The Sims 4: University expansion. There’s also a new type of homework that your sim will need to do on a regular basis.
Your sim will have homework for every class they attend. They’ll need to finish their homework before going to that class again.
If you want to get an A+ in University, you’ll have to start doing homework even before going to your first set of classes.
Doing homework at university is similar to doing any other homework. Go to your sim’s inventory where you’ll find a black and white homework book.
Click on it and select the class you’re going to do the homework for.
There are a couple of ways you can speed up the process. The first way is to add the study spot lot trait to your house. The second way is to level up your sim’s research and debate skills.
The higher those skills are, the faster your sim will be at finishing homework and writing term papers.
