Dreadful WOMBAT

A Dreadful-graded W.O.M.B.A.T..

Dreadful is one of the three failing grades, out of six grades overall, in the Ordinary Wizarding Levels, Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests, and Wizards' Ordinary Magic and Basic Aptitude Tests. It is the second lowest mark, immediately below 'Poor' and immediately above 'Troll'.

Advancing to N.E.W.T.-level

If a student is given a 'Dreadful' grade on their O.W.L test, they cannot continue on with that subject as a N.E.W.T. class. This is the same for the other failing grades: 'Poor' and 'Troll'.
