Best Overall Result: Verity Weasley

You can see what your best subjects are, which may be a great help when you choose your future magical career. Of course, some subjects are more difficult than others but, on the whole, I would like to congratulate Professor Trelawney and Professor Hagrid on their students' excellent performance (and shame on Dolores Umbridge, the incompetent High Inquisitor, who wanted to sack these two teachers)! On the other hand, Professor Sprout may want to reconsider her methodology a little bit.

Congratulations to everyone on the successful exams and most of all congratulations to Verity Weasley! I hereby invite her to join the Examination Board and prepare the next exam.

cheers 

Thank you Professor J.H. for your very kind words.   

And thank you Julia for putting together this awesome quiz for us to have some fun with. It must have been a mammoth undertaking to put this together, so I don't know I could possibly follow this!   I'll give it some thought though.
