All fourth year students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are required to complete a set of examinations to get into their fifth year. There is one test for each subject a particular student takes. Not much is known about fourth year exams as Harry Potter did not have to take these exams as he was a Hogwarts Triwizard Champion. He spent most of the time when he would have otherwise been preparing for them reading up on useful spells for the Triwizard Tournament. The History of Magic exam involves testing the students on their knowledge of Goblin rebellions.
Behind the scenes
- The end of year exams for previous years generally focused on material that was covered within the previous year in class. Therefore, amongst the material likely to have been covered would be the Summoning Charm and Banishing Charm in Charms and Blast-Ended Skrewts and Nifflers in Care of Magical Creatures.
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Mentioned only)
