    I was watching "Young Sherlock Homes" yesterday, and noticed some very interesting parallels between that and Harry Potter. Switch the physical characteristics of Holmes and Watson, you have Potter and Weasley. I recommend renting it and judging for yourself.

    yeah, they are tests similar to Muggle SATs

    O.W.L.s are exams students of the Hogworts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry have to take in their fifth year. It stands for Ordinary Wizarding Levels.


    N.E.W.T.s stands for Nearly Exhausting Wizarding Test. These are given at the end of the seventh year and qualify you for a job in the wizarding world.

    does that help? :D

    Yeah that helps. :)
    If a wizard can't get a job, can he collect unemployment? And if so, could he collect it in the muggle world also? Does Gringots exchange muggle money for wizard gold?

    I'm like halfway through this book.
    How much more can possibly happen to this kid? I can believe in wizards and goblins and giants, but to believe any one kids life is this bad? C'mon? His parents got smoked, he's got that scar for life, snape hates him, this toad chick hates him, the man woking at the ministry is trying to keep the brotha down, now he can't play quidditch? What next? is there a fly by at hogwarts and his best friend gets capped? He gonna get jacked for his broom?
