Increasing your INT per level will boost the EXP you gain by about 3%, however, the 3x EXP possible rewards via the Idiot Savant perk will help you much more in easily reaching higher levels in the game. You can level-up the Idiot Savant Perk to Rank 2, boosting the possible EXP gains to 5x EXP.
Imagine receiving a 3x or 5x EXP multiplier whenever you finish quests. Employing this trick can help you level-up your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. and acquire most of the perks you want easily.
