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 at the beginning of 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 get sorted into your Hogwarts house and are assigned your classes: Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Charms, Astronomy, and Herbology. In your second year, you get the option to play on your house's Quidditch team. There are four positions in Quidditch: chaser, beater, keeper, and seeker. The three chasers throw the Quaffle into the vertical basketball-like hoops at each end of the Pitch to score goals, each goal being worth 10 points. The keeper guards these hoops, trying to keep the opposing team from scoring. The two beaters use wooden bats to hit bludgers through the air at their opponents, knocking them off-course. The seeker chases the golden snitch, which awards the seeker's team with 150 points and ends the game. The oldest member of the Quidditch team is Quidditch Captain, which schedules practices and tryouts for the team. In your third year, if you're parents signed your permission slip, you get to go to a wizards' town called Hogsmeade, which is home to many shops, similar to Diagon Ally, where you can by goods, such as candy. You also have the option of picking two of these classes: Arithmancy, Care of Magical Creatures, Divination, Muggle Studies, and Ancient Runes. In your fifth year, you take O.W.L's, which are exams for each of your classes. If you do well enough in your O.W.L's, you get into the classes required for your choice career, which was decided in your fifth year, to study in your last two years of Hogwarts. The passing grades are Outstanding, Exceeds Expectations, and Acceptable. The failing grades are Poor, Dreadful, and Troll. Most of your classes will require an E, but some require an O. You also get to become a Prefect in this year if the headmaster chose you to be one. In your sixth year, you get another chance to become a Prefect and get into the classes you got a high-enough score for in your previous year. In your seventh year (final year), you take N.E.W.T's (exams) for your classes from that year. These grades determine which career options you have when you leave this school. If you were a Prefect in previous years, you might become head boy or girl for your house!
