Quiet in the Great Hall! Ordinary Wizarding Level Examinations (OWLs) are now in progress!

The MuggleNet Ordinary Wizarding Level Examinations (OWLs), the ultimate test of your Harry Potter and magical knowledge, are now available in the Great Hall!

We’ve got all twelve exams ready for you to take, and what’s more, this year one test-taker will receive a fabulous prize package courtesy of the Hogsmeade Station Gift Shop. (Follow HSGS on Facebook!)

The prize package includes everything you need for a successful year at Hogwarts:

  • Your own set of crystal Hogwarts potions vials
  • An Astronomy class Hogwarts telescope kit
  • An Eeylops Owl Emporium discovery kit
  • Get out your quill and ink for Magical Creatures Create and Trace activities
  • Keep your notes in a Platform 9 3/4 journal
  • Keep your place in your school books with a Sorting Hat bookmark
  • And temporary tattoo stampers of lightning bolt scar images just for fun.


Entering is as easy as taking your Ordinary Wizarding Levels! The prize will go to a randomly drawn participant, and you can receive one entry for every exam passed and one extra entry for each passing grade for those who take all twelve exams. And here’s even better news – this contest is open worldwide!

When you are finished with an exam, share the results on our Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter or even challenge your friends. We promise you this: THESE EXAMS ARE NOT EASY, and they will challenge even the most devoted fans. Can you pass all twelve exams?

So get your quills and parchment out – the OWLs are RIGHT HERE!

    Question: How do we enter the above contest? Is it automatic as we submit our O.W.L.s? Or do we have to go somewhere and physically enter?

    • Victoria91

      Yes it is automatic; each candidate number with a passing exam will be eligible, and individuals who complete all 12 exams will get an additional entry for each exam they pass.

  • Amelia

    Is anyone else having trouble accessing the exams? I retrieved my candidate number, so I know it’s correct, but the website is telling me, “Access denied.” Is there anything I can do to get back in to take the tests?

      I’m having the same problem. Maybe it takes a little while for the registration to be entered in their system.
