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

"This is to certify that you have failed W.O.M.B.A.T. Grade 2 and have been awarded the classification of Troll. Although this was a difficult examination, it was quite an achievement for you to score zero. We are forced to conclude that you were either making a rebellious statement about the futility of formal education (in which case you are probably a member of a subversive goblin group), or that you were too busy attempting to eat the examination paper to notice the questions (in which case, you are a troll)."
—A letter sent to certify a Troll-graded W.O.M.B.A.T.[src]

Troll 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 lowest mark, immediately below Dreadful. It appears to be generally be reserved for those who receive a score of zero, or a negative score if possible.[1] There are no known recipients. Some people, including Hermione Granger, did not know it existed, hinting that the grade is seldomly attributed.

Entering into N.E.W.T. Classes

If a student is given a Troll grade on their O.W.L. test, they have failed that subject and are thus unable to continue with that class at a N.E.W.T. level. The same goes for the other two failing grades: Poor and Dreadful.
