I don't think there should be a section about the Battle of Hogwarts in this article. It has nothing to do with what seventh-year students experience in general, which is the focus of the article. Furthermore, Harry was not in his seventh year when the battle occurred; he skipped his seventh year. At most, there should be a small section stating that Harry, Ron, and Hermione skipped their seventh year in 1997-1998, and that many others in their class voluntarily stayed at the school to fight in the Battle of Hogwarts when Voldemort and his army approached, whereas most students in lower years were evacuated because they were underage.

Ditto. We should probably wait one day first before removing it, just in case anyone objects. - Nick O'Demus 17:25, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

The reference to the students always being seventeen or eighteen should be excluded. It justifies this by stating british schools don't make students repeat years, however muggle schools and hogwartz aren't subject to the same rules and standards(obviously. Thus we do not actually know this as fact.


The Time table references 1994 -1996 school years
