$56$ students per bus.

Explanation:

WE can answer this by writing an equation and solving it.

Let the number of students per bus be $x$.

There were 6 buses filled with students.
This is $6 \times x = 6 x$ students.

There were $7$ other students who travelled by car.
There were $331$ students altogether.

$6 x + 7 = 331$

$6 x = 331 - 7$

$6 x = 324$

$x = 56$ students per bus.
