How to Get the BitLife Academic Ribbon

Here’s how to get the BitLife academic ribbon.

Be Academic

This may sound like a slap in the face to anyone who has tried to get this ribbon and failed. But that really is what you have to do. You need to get through school, and university and then make it to higher education. This education includes business school, medical school, nursing school and many more. You will need to pass college and university in order to be able to enlist for one of these schools.

Pick Degrees

You can’t become a lawyer studying mathematics or biology, but you can apply to one of the other schools instead. Studying something like dance or information technology is a waste of time in BitLife. You won’t be qualified to enlist at any of the higher education schools with a degree in something pointless. So decide early, are you going for a medical type of school, business or law? Each one of these graduate schools has several courses that count towards qualification, you just have to pick the right ones.

So Just Seek Higher Education?

I have achieved this ribbon many times throughout my BitLife career, each life was rather different from the last. The only common feature between these lives is that they all have some type of higher education. It doesn’t seem to matter how long you live, or how much you make as I have achieved this ribbon as an 86-year-old brain surgeon, with a net worth of seven million. I have also achieved the academic ribbon as a 44-year-old vet, who only made £300,000 as their final net worth. So, age, gender or country of birth, don’t seem to be a factor in achieving this ribbon.

That being said if you live a long life you have a higher chance of over-achieving this ribbon. What I mean by this is that to be classed as an academic, your education must be your most interesting feature. I have had many attempts at this ribbon where I end up with a ribbon I was not expecting, like scandalous. So, if you want this ribbon to keep your nose clean and try not to achieve too much in this life. If your nose is too clean and you spend too much time with the family, you can end up earning the hero ribbon. If you are reckless and aggressive, you could end up as wasteful or scandalous.

Now you know what you need to do to be an academic, have fun with it. I have warned you about the possibility of achieving a different ribbon by being too naughty or nice. Now it’s up to you to have fun and see if you can do just the right amount to end up becoming an academic.
