Silence in the Great Hall – OWL exams are still in progress
The MuggleNet Ordinary Wizarding Level examinations, or OWLs, have been available to fans in the Great Hall since Monday. In 2 1/2 days, there have been an amazing turnout of wizard exams taken and an even higher percentage of passing grades this year.
Here are the current totals:
- Total tests taken – 7,313
- Outstanding – 753
- Exceeds Expectation – 940
- Acceptable – 1,897
- Poor – 1,907
- Dreadful – 1,611
- Troll – 205
The large increase in turnout and passing grades could be due to the prize package being offered to one random winner, or it could be that we have more witches and wizards than ever before. Either way, keep up the great work. All twelve OWL exams are available and ready for you to attempt RIGHT HERE.
This year, our fabulous prize package is 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
- 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.
This amazing prize package will go to a randomly drawn participant. You will receive one entry for every exam passed and one additional entry for each passing grade for those who take all twelve exams. Open to ALL MuggleNet fans!
We will share a few of the harder questions and answers throughout the testing period (which ends on Sunday, June 29 at 11:59 p.m. EDT) on our Facebook and Twitter, so be sure to follow us.
Finally, thanks to our brilliant team at AudioFictions, we have our OWL commercial available for you to listen to right here!
Good luck on your exams!
