Throughout the years students MUST take the fifth year exam, Ordinary Wizarding Levels or O.W.L.s, and the seventh year exam, Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests or N.E.W.T.s. Before taking your O.W.L.s the students must talk to their Head of House about their Occupation Choice because based on their grades on the O.W.L.s decide if they are ready for that particular job.During the student's first and second year students are required to take Transfiguration, Defence Against The Dark Arts, Charms, Astronomy, History of Magic, Flying, and Potions. In their third year they can begin taking classes in Divination, Ancient Runes, Care Of Magical Creatures, Arithmancy and Muggle Studies and take weekend trips to the nearby village of Hogsmeade. After taking the O.W.L.s they can drop anything except for Transfiguration, Defence Against The Dark Arts, and Charms, not to mention the option of taking Apparition lessons. Starting from their second year students can own a broom for the popular game of Quidditch. It is not likely to be chosen for a team in your first year. Albus Dumbledore, Rubeus Hagrid, Remus Lupin, Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn, Severus Snape, Pomona Sprout and Sybill Trelawney are some of the teachers that work at Hogwarts. Argus Filch is the school caretaker and Poppy Pomfrey is the school nurse who is most of the time in the Hospital wing.
