(SKIP TO THE BIO FORMAT IF YOU'VE READ THE SERIES AND KNOW WHAT THIS IS ABOUT) When you are 11 years old, you discover your magical abilities and soon receive an invitation to an academy in Scotland called Hogwarts, where professors for different subjects teach you to use and control these abilities. At Hogwarts, there are four houses, one of which you will be sorted into in your first year: Gryffindor for the brave and determined, Slytherin for the cunning and ambitious, Ravenclaw for the wise and accepting, and Hufflepuff for the loyal and hard-working. In your first year, you are assigned your mandatory classes: Transfiguration,History of Magic, Defense Against The Dark Arts, Potions, Charms, Astronomy, and Herbology. In your second year, you get the option to play on you house's Quidditch team. There are four positions in Quidditch: chaser, beater, keeper, and seeker. The three chasers throw the Quaffle into basketball-like vertical hoops to score goals, each goal made being worth ten points. The keeper guards these hoops, trying to keep the opposing team from scoring. The two beaters use wooden bats to hit bludgers at their opponents, knocking them off course. The seeker chases the golden snitch, which gives the seeker's team an additional 150 points and ends the game. The Quidditch Captain, who schedules their team's practices. is always the oldest on the team. In your third year, you have the option to go to a wizarding town called Hogsmeade. Hogsmeade has many shops, similar to Diagon Alley, where you can by candy, quills, and other goods. You also have the option of picking two of these classes: Muggle Studies, Ancient Runes, Divination, Arithmancy, or Care of Magical Creatures. At the end of your fifth year, you take O.W.L.'s, which are exams for each of your classes of that year. If you do well enough on your O.W.L.'s, you get into the classes required to study in your last two years of Hogwarts for your choice career.
The Grading System:
O for Outstanding (pass)
E for Exceeds Expectations (pass)
A for Acceptable (pass)
P for Poor (fail)
D for Dreadful (fail)
T for Troll (fail)
Most of the classes require an E, but some will require an O for you to continue with that class. In this year, you also might get to become a Prefect. Prefects enforce the school rules onto other students and assign minor punishments to those who don't follow. In your sixth year, you get into the classes you got a high-enough-grade for on the O.W.L. At the end of your seventh year, you take N.E.W.T.'s (exams) for the classes you have been taking in the two previous years. These grades will decide your career options for when you leave Hogwarts. If you were a Prefect in previous years, you might become Head Boy/Girl for your house.
