Some gamers claim that their Sim children get taken away when they get an F from school while others only get the Embarrassed or Sad moodlets. Whatever the case, it’s important that your Sim do their schoolwork.
So, how do you go about it? If you need to know how to do homework in Sims 4, below is an explanation for doing homework in grade school, high school, and university.
All child and teen sims automatically get homework that can be found in their inventory. It doesn’t matter if you made your Sim in CAS or aged them up. To do homework, it all starts with the homework book.
If you have a child Sim, the homework looks like a thin Math book. It is predominantly yellow with an orange border and several shapes on the front, like a circle and triangles.
To do the homework, simply click on the book in the inventory of your Sim and then click Do Homework. Depending on the skill level of your Sim, this option can also appear as Breeze Through Homework or Dominate Homework.
For teen Sims, the homework looks like a Science book. It is thicker than the child’s homework and is in 2 shades of blue with a DNA drawing on the front. To do the teen’s homework, just click on the book and then Do Homework.
Once your child or teen Sim gets a B in school, this will unlock the extra credit option in their homework. Once the regular homework is done, there is a choice for them to Do Extra Credit.
If you want to help out your child or teen Sim with their schoolwork, you can have an adult Sim do that. Once your child or teen Sim is already doing the homework, click on the adult Sim and then click on the child or teen Sim where you will find the Help with Homework. Or, you can also have the child or teen Sim click on the adult Sim and Ask for Homework Help.
On the off-chance that you can’t find the homework in your Sims inventory, you can always purchase one through any computer or bookcase, under the children’s category when ordering books. It only costs $1 so don’t go crazy trying to look for your Sim’s missing homework.
It’s a whole other world of schoolwork at Sims 4 University. Once your Sim is enrolled, the homework book, which looks like a classic composition notebook with a marbled black and white cover, should appear in the inventory.
Here’s where things get different for your Sim in university. For each term, you can take 1 to 4 classes at a time. For each of these classes, you have to do individual homework. So, when you click on the homework notebook, all of the names of classes taken will appear. Click on the class homework that you want to do.
Unlike teens and children, your Uni Sim needs to do their homework ahead of the class, especially if they want to get an A+. It also takes around 2 hours for one homework to be completed, unless your Sim has a high Research and Debate skill or is in a lot with the Study Spot trait.
When you check your Uni Sim’s schedule, you’ll be able to see the progress of their homework, if it is 50% done, just started, or completed.
How to do homework in Sims 4 is pretty straightforward. Again, just click on the appropriate homework book in your Sim’s inventory, then do the homework. If your Sim misplaces it or there is a glitch, just buy another homework from the computer or bookcase.
Make sure you have the best laptop for Sim4 so you can encounter fewer glitches or problems when it comes to homework and the school progress of your Sims.
