The other 10% is the "EAT" (Especially Advanced Talent) Class, for agents who use their powers to battle evil.

—Sid Barrett, Soul Eater NOT!, Chapter 4

The Especially Advantaged Talent Class (a.k.a. E.A.T Class) is the advanced general curriculum in Death Weapon Meister Academy.[1]

Overview

In this general advancement curriculum, agents (teacher and student) in this class use their power to fight against evil. The last 10% of the student body make up and follow this curriculum.[1]

Teaching

In the EAT Class, most teachings and lectures revolve around a sort of science known as soul studies, teaching students about the very soul, and special training that aims to improve their ability to hunt the souls (often called "Battle Arts").[2][3][4]

Whenever students fall behind in their studies and/or hunting activity, they're given a chance to complete remedial classes: lessons orchestrated by the headmaster of DWMA on account of poor soul hunting ability or repeated failures of performing certain quests that allow a student to make up and improve their grade with failure resulting in possible expulsion.[5]

Testing

There's two special testing elusive to the DWMA in which students partake in:

  • Ultimate Written Exam: A test given to both meisters and weapons within the academy every year which focuses on the soul studies subject.[6]
  • Athletics Test: A test of physical fitness, which is much more intense then that of normal athletics tests.[7] Required for E.A.T. and N.O.T. students alike.[8]

Student Life

Like the N.O.T. Class, there seems to be some sort of age requirement for joining the DWMA.[9] Although the minimum age limit is unknown, middle school-aged students are eligible to join the DWMA and[10]

Activities

Quests

Quests are missions undertaken exclusively by the E.A.T. Class student and faculty body outside the academy and are dangerous. Many of their missions revolves around the execution of those on Shinigami's List[11] (Kishin Eggs in the anime[12]) as well as investigations of supernatural occurrences and assassinations.[11]

The quests are organized into different ranks; each student also has a rank. Depending on their corresponding rank, they're allowed to take on missions suited for them. These quests seem to be organized by the Receptionist as well as N.O.T Students in order by rank and posted on the mission board in the academy.[13]

Sponsors

Popularly known weapon and meisters are able to have sponsors with which they make deals with corporate sponsors to make money and get rich. Students who signs deals to do sponsors may use the money they earn towards donations.[14]

Special Privileges & Roles

Those within the E.A.T Class enjoy more privileges such as being able to afford to live in actual custom apartments, enjoy special privileges like being able to ride on a moped illegally or without a license,[15] Additionally, they can be occasionally called to help out the N.O.T Class as a mentor similar to that of the faculty upon an instructor's choosing.[citation needed]

Rank & Information Clearance

Partial look of a ID card.

Within the participants of the E.A.T Class, students, staff, and any agent under this designated class are classified to a star based and ranking system with one star being the lowest and three stars being the highest. They're also divided by a special rank: elite meister, death scythes, Death's family.[5][5][16] Official meister and weapon teams share the same star status as one another.[17]

Such information is recorded in a badge carried by it's agents with their name, miscellaneous information, and their rank[16] in which determines the sort of quests they're capable of performing.[18] Their badge also details the "Information Level" clearance a meister/weapon has in the DWMA's library divided into category levels 1-4, though the last two require additional special designation not typical of the star status of a given individual.[16]
