Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!

Between the girls trying to hook him up with the busty school nurse, dealing with the unfortunate consequences of a hamster named 'Titties' and other misadventures, Satoshi’s dream of an uneventful school life has come to an end!
The manga version of Baka to Test is just starting out but it's definitely worth checking out if you liked Mx0 and want some more school-life comedy with romance throughout (Even though for Baka to Test, the romance is either one-sided or the ones who love each other are oblivious).
It's also works if you enjoyed what bit there is of Baka to Test and want something else that's like it; Mx0 finshed and had a pretty decent run length wise (10 volumes). Both share some of the same humor and some fanservice throughout.
They also have an element that makes it different from a normal school comedy; magic in Mx0 and a strange Exam Summoning Battle for Baka to Test. Outside factors that add to the fun.
Ouran High School is a prestigious private academy where money and status count for everything. Haruhi Fujioka is a scholarship student at the elite school, and is appalled by the lazy attitude of the rich and powerful students towards their studies. The Host Club is a clear example of this: a group of six attractive and wealthy boys spend their time entertaining the female pupils for a profit. When Haruhi accidentally breaks a ¥8,000,000 vase belonging to the club, they force her to work off her debt as one of the club's members; and to do so, she must masquerade as a boy! Can Haruhi keep her gender a secret from the club's exclusive clients?
With parody-based series Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Ouran High School Host Club each bring their own style of mocking humor. Baka to Test focuses on a shounen aspect while Ouran is geared more towards shoujo. Both series are meant for the same types of audiences.
Like school settings where characters summon beings to fight other students to raise their rank? Do you also like pinkhaired heroines and lazy/stupid protagonists? You'll probably be interested in the other.
