    Thank you very much.
    Bye

  • Hey, can somebody list the grades (O,E etc.) in the right order, because where I come from, we don’t have letter-grades but number-grades. Er…does somebody know what I mean?!

  • Lisa Marie, check here: O.W.L.s marks.

  • Thx, Belinda.
    Wow I’ve only just managed to pass!!! (-;
    (I have an A)

  • nat

    I got an O! funny that they offer you a teaching post at Hogwarts. I’m not sure I’d take on as DADA teacher though…

  • aillinne

    I’ve thougt I will die… Outstanding people… Am I dreaming?

  • Char

    Woohoo. I gor Exceeds Expectations, but my poor daughter is VERY upset with me, because she got Poor, and wants to know how I could be the bigger Harry Potter fan over her.

  • Elsinore

    I had several goes (with different codes) – First attempt E, all other attempts Outstanding. Amazed. Was sure I had a T

  • Pat Pat

    I got an O on this one! Yayyy!! I’m very curious about the scoring because I felt less confident about this one than the last one, yet I got an E on that one! I felt as nervous as my students when I’m passing back their Algebra tests while I was waiting for the results! I’m such a nerd. I totally relate to Hermione!

  • Remi

    Unbelieveable! I got an O!!! I actually re-took the test after researching some of the questions and only got an E on that! Wow. I was sure I didn’t pass.
    I’ll be happy to teach flying at Hogwarts if nobody minds ๐Ÿ™‚

  • aillinne

    My Outstanding answers:
    1e 2d 3e 4a 5b, c, j 6.1c 6.2a 6.3f 6.4e 6.5b 6.6d 7.1 TRUE 7.2 TRUE 7.3 TRUE 7.4 TRUE 7.5 TRUE 7.6 FALSE 7.7 FALSE 7.8 TRUE 7.9 FALSE 7.10 FALSE 8c 9c 10a 11a 12e, f 13a 14a 15.1h 15.2e 15.3f

  • Jaime

    I GOT AN A!!!!! I PASSED!!! I got on O on the last one, but I’m glad that I at least passed this one! It was hard…

  • SGBG

    I got two Es and two Os. Heehee, maybe taking it 4 times was wrong but it was too much fun…plus i wanted to make sure that I considered every possible point. Well I’m happy, but what does it say about people who have failed?

  • zophi137

    i got a P. oh well could have been worse(not much though)

  • elizabeth_potter

    YEA!!!! I PASSSED!!!! A!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ein_il_eilph

    So O you get offered a teaching post, E a post at the Ministry of Magic…What about A, P and D?

  • Heidi

    Wahoo! I got my first ‘Outstanding!’ (Two E’s previously.)

  • Gollies! I got an “O” on my pre-commentary test! Post-commentary got an “O” too =)

  • kuffara

    An A told you to send an application owl to Florish & Blotts, Weasly’s Wizarding Wheezes or Nimbus Broom Company.

  • I am thrilled I got an O. I got an O on the first test and an E on the second. I really felt this was a difficult test.

  • Joan

    I got EE – it says the Ministry of Magic are on the lookout for accomplished recruits such as myself – but I don’t think I want to work there!!

  • Alorra Spinnet

    I got an o!
    That makes O E O for the three for me. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I thought for sure I flunked this one. The only think I felt secure about was the end. LOL

  • HarryAyryn

    I think we all can be proud of ourselves. I have a friend that got an ‘A’. He knows as much as I do. I got an ‘E’. It was a difficult exam and easy to missread questions. Congratulations to all! Even the ‘P’s. You were probably so excited that you may have miss marked answers. I know I do if I don’t calm myself down.

  • chris

    I did the test over 3 different times changing my answer on a few questions I wasn’t sure about. Got an E all three time. lol

  • auntypsycho

    I got O . EE, EE, O for me :D:D:D

  • Aubry

    My first WOMBAT!
    I got an A!
    At least I passed!

  • PrincessOrual

    I got two EE’s! I can not imagine how.

    Do we get the corrected papers?

  • Laurel

    I got an E on the first one, but only an A on the second. I was very nervous about this third one, but I GOT AN E!!!

    I’m very happy.

  • Laurel

    PrincessOrual, I don’t know, but I’m hoping Jo posts the correct answers after HP&tDH comes out. 25 DAYS!!!!!

  • Bible Spice

    Wow!! Now I am even *more sorry* I was too preoccupied to get tests 1 & 2. That “Outstanding” looks very nice on my virtual wall.

    I think it is just this side of cruel that the certificate encourages a person to apply for teaching positions at Hogwarts! I would leave my college position in a *minute* to teach at Hogwarts!!

  • Amanda

    I got a P. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Karrelien

    I got an A! I’m happy with it!
    Hope my scoolresults are as good as these!

  • PrincessOrual

    Laurel, I do hope so! I’d love to know which questions I got wrong.

  • Neville

    I got an O as well. Here are my answers, for those, who want to compare the results.

    1e, 2a, 3e, 4a, 5 a, e and f, 6.1c, 6.2e, 6.3a, 6.4b, 6.5f, 6.6d, 7.1 True, 7.2 false, 7.3 true, 7.4 true, 7.5 true, 7.6 true, 7.7 false, 7.8 true, 7.9 false, 7.10 false (but I’m pretty sure I got this wrong), 8d, 9c, 10a, 11f, 12e and f, 13b, 14e, 15.1h, 15.2e, 15.3i, 15.4m, 15.5j 15.6f, 15.7m

  • daveindetroit

    EE on 1 O on 2 A on 3 I Know I messed up most of the Minsters of Magic but at least I PASSED. Really thought a T was in the works for me.

  • Beatrice

    Yeah! An O! I got “A” the first time, then “O” & “O”. I did so poorly on my Ministers, I didn’t think that was possible this time. I think Jo was more interested in our understanding concepts and attitudes than in memorizing facts for the W.O.M.B.A.T.

  • TJ

    YEA! Wat up foos! I got an O!!! I was hoping for at least an A and dreading that I failed. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • hpboy13

    OMG, E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Laurel, I got the exact same as you E-A-E! I can’t believe I actually passed all thre!! I am so ultimately proud of myself, I am hanging the three certificates on my wall.
    I’m not ashamed to admit I was hyperventilating when opening the results.

  • KnightRider

    Exceeds Expectations! I thought I would be trolled but no ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s a good farewell to the WOMBATs…

  • Amy

    I got an A! Same result as I got for WOMBAT 2 (I missed WOMBAT 1), but I was sure I’d get a P as I did very badly on the Ministers for Magic section (According to the Lexicon Commentary, Fudge was the only one I got right).

  • Tim Eldridge

    I’m so very happy that I now have an “O”, “E”, and “O” on my WOMBATS !!!

  • Loopy Loony Luna

    An O! I fell off my chair with shock! It actually hurt, but I’m too ecstatic to care! This will look very nice on the wall above my desk!

  • Jayni D.

    Well, I am pleased that I got an A the first time I took the test, and EE the second time (when I took more time to think about the questions). I was sure the ministers of magic would mess me up and thought I would fail.

    I missed the first W.O.M.B.A.T., but got an O on the second the 1st time I took it and EE the 2nd time! Go figure!

    Anyway, I would really love to see the correct answers and marking scheme. I also wish I had recorded my answers as I wrote them. I did it for the 2nd time I took each W.O.M.B.A.T., but forgot to do it for the first time. Oh, well.

  • recklesscatlover

    Got an O and a job offer at hogwarts… on my 1st wombat. Cool. Just I didn’t believe it and I promised that tomorrow I go to work with a pointed hat…

  • aillinne

    recklesscatlover
    And what would you like to teach?

  • John

    I got an A, which isn’t too bad! On my first W.O.M.B.A.T.!

  • Silverbackbutch

    I was grouchy when I missed the first 2 WOMBATS, but I got an O!! I’m thrilled!

  • Big_Kelpie

    I GOT MY FIRST O. I was in sucha bad mood(reading snicket’s the hostiel hospital) until is saw the big envelope!!!!!!! I have gotten an A and an E in Wombet 1 & 2.. Don’t i show progress? It probably has to do with the fact the i finally got the books in English..
    In the extra ones, i got a T, a P , an A and another O(with lexicon’s hhelpgul help this time)
    jk lighten my day.. now i foret her for never making a suothamerican tour

  • ANOTHER OUTSDANDING!
    I had scored O in the first WOMBAT (but I lost the ID ร‚ยฌร‚ยฌ), E in the second and now and O again!
    That’s nice, I could be a teacher! o/
    I always play McGonagall in RPGs, so I would apply for the Transfiguration post now that she’s Headmistress ๐Ÿ˜€

  • **just for the record: “OUTSTANDING” and “now an O again” were wrongly typed =p

  • MelindaFloo

    I got an O! I was scared I’d get a T, for Troll! This was the first test I’ve taken, I wish I could have taken the other two!

  • ericvsthem

    I got an “O” on this 3rd test after receiving grades of “E” on the first two. I didn’t feel like I did very well on this test, perhaps they were graded on a curve?

    I wonder if there were any additional awards for folks who received grades of “Outstanding” on all 3 tests?

  • I GOT AN o!!!!

  • redordead

    Hurray!!! My first test and I got an O!! My husband and 6 year old daughter couln’t understand why I was so excited!!! Do they need to get a life, or do I?

  • Haltiamieli

    Seems I’m always better than I’m expected to be, but still not that good anyway… ๐Ÿ˜› Exceeds Expectations on the first one, Exceeds Expectations on the second one, Exceeds Expectations on the third one. Never did a test twice, thought that would be kind of cheating. Now however it buggers me a bit. Would have wanted at least one Outstanding result, cheating or not. :ร‚ยด(

  • Bees

    I got an E! Yay! My two friends left their codes with me, as they don’t have internet access. (Unfortunately, they got a P and a D…but I owe my E to being addicted to the lexicon! ^_^)

  • Maureen from Aus

    I got an E (and like Hermoine, I’m a little disappointed) – but I guess it’s pretty good considering how difficult the questions were this time and that they threatened to take off points – now all we need are the official answers (is that Book 8 the encyclopedia I see in the distance?)

    Wombat 1 = 0
    Wombat 2 = E
    Wombat 3 = E

    I laughed when I saw the test was called a wombat – being an Aussie, I wondered about the reputation of the animal – they aren’t known to be all that smart, but can get a bit cranky as they get older (as do we all ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Maureen

  • Reader2

    Somebody was wondering when in the book these tests are taken.

    Now we have the answer.
    The third test results come with job suggestions, so obviously WOMBAT comes after school.
    Now, in’t it’s interesting that they suggest teaching at Hogwarts for those who got O and working at the Ministry for those who got an E. (I got an E, by the way).

    And we can be happy for Fred and George, their store is now recommended as an equal to Flourish & Blotts or Nimbus.

  • Big_Kelpie

    Reader2 : I believed this tests were to be taken only by muggles, didn’t it say so in the first wombat introduction?
    I know this is contradictory with the fact thatwe are being reccomended magical jobs now

  • Reader2

    Big_Kelpie,
    I don’t know about intorduction, since I never got to take WOMBAT 1, but the certificate of acomplishment of “O for WOMBAT Grade 1” already addresses it’s holder as “a witch or wizard”.
    We can see it right here on Lexicon.

  • Bandersnatch

    “Unlike the O.W.L.s, the W.O.M.B.A.T.s consist exclusively of written papers. Therefore W.O.M.B.A.T.s could be sat by Muggles as well as wizards, although the Wizarding Examinations Authority does not believe that any Muggle would have the degree of inner-knowledge required to achieve a pass.”

    I quoted this from the introduction to the third WOMBAT, but I believe this has been stated in each exam’s intro.

  • Bandersnatch

    The above was posted for Big_Kelpie and Reader2, btw.

  • hpboy13

    I honestly think that the WOMBATs test themselves are not part of canon, surely we’d have heard abotu them by now? Remember when we heard about OWLs in I believe CoS, and then NEWTs in I think PoA (not sure about this), I’m sure we’d have heard about it by now.
    Am I the only who believes that anyone who got an O on all 3 deserves a stupendous prize? I’m not sure if anyone did (at least without cheating), but anyone who’s that dedicated (or lucky, depends how you look at it), shoudl get to like read a chapter fo DH or something. Oly 25 more days now…

  • aillinne

    Yes, they are part of canon. We need canon information to get answers right and I remember that Steve considerered them as a new canon: I wish all the questions were this straightforward. However, from this question we can infer that Inferi can speak, that Goblins do not fear sunlight, that there are female centaurs, and that vampire bites are incurable. “Love finding out new canon, even if it’s tiny little tidbits like this.” – That’s his answer to first question on WOMBAT 2.

  • daelirium

    I think hpboy13 means that the WOMBAT tests are not part of canon, while aillinne is saying that the information used in WOMBAT tests are part of, and additional to canon knowledge.

    By the way, I got an E so I’m fairly happy, since I didn’t really mug for it much. Wished I had known about WOMBAT 1 and 2 though!

  • babystars

    I’m surprised I got an EE, I mean I was mostly plain guessing and didn’t make any reference while doing it.. But still, I’m ecstatic =D

  • christine

    I got another Outstanding!!!

  • Haltiamieli

    I don’t think we have much reason to doubt the canonity of the W.O.M.B.A.T. tests as themselves – after all, the information on them is written by Rowling herself. The question is, what exactly is the tests’ function in wizarding world? I think it’s quite clear W.O.M.B.A.T. is not part of the formal education, Hogwarts that is. As hpboy13 argued, it should have been mentioned in the books already if such was the case; and besides, the pupils graduating from Hogwarts have to sit N.E.W.T.S. anyway. So, I would suppose W.O.M.B.A.T. is a test for example for people who have not passed through Hogwarts for variety of reasons: they might be home-schooled, or somehow incapacitated. Maybe Hagrid has sat through W.O.M.B.A.T. test some time or another. Maybe W.O.M.B.A.T. is also used to determine if immigrating wizard-folk is well enough versed in British wizarding ways and traditions. Probably some (or even most of?) jobs need the applicant to have passed through W.O.M.B.A.T.(s) well enough, at least in the case the applicant can’t present good grades from any school of magic.

  • John

    I totally agree hpboy13, those who are dedicated and pass the third and final W.O.M.B.A.T. should get a totally stupendous prize!
    Also, I agree that if it were canon we would have heard about it at least once, maybe twice.

  • John

    And by the by, does anyone know what the initials that are behind Griselda Marchbanks, CDMG, APMO,fdBB?

  • Geri

    O’s all the way baby! I got an O on all three! woohoo!

  • Shunpike

    I got EE, which is true because it *exceeds* my own *expectations* to get a T! That was HARD! and also my first WOMBAT ever!

  • As Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes seems to be looking for staff, can we assume that Fred and George will survive, or is it just…
    … well, the wildest guesswork ? (I got an A, after all…)

  • Luzana

    I got OUTSTANDING

  • Suzan

    I got an E woo hoo, not bad for my first one

  • JC

    I got an Outstanding and I have no idea how. I was guessing for most of the test.

    For the first WOMBAT I got an Acceptable and I didn’t even take the second one. (I didn’t know that it came out until after the results were sent out.) How did I go from Acceptable to Outstanding? I was sure that I had failed the exam.

  • clock_maker

    Hurray for me! I got Dreadful ๐Ÿ™

  • mysweetdar

    Well, I missed the first two WOMBATS, cuz i kept missing the open door…..So, was sooooo excited to take the third….I got an EE…yippeeeeeee!!!!! What fun!!!!!I sure wouldn”t mind being an auror!!!lol….Congrats to all who passed!!!!

  • maci

    Got another “A”. I’m not complaining. Give me a job at F & B anytime!!

  • yebsakin

    I got an a on my first one!
    I wonder if you got extra points if you took the first two, cause my answers were pretty similar to some of the O’s.

  • I got an A, which is cool because I SO did not study. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So I am apparently qualified to work at Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes! Sweet! ;p

  • Kendra

    I amazingly got an O! I’m so happy!! It is odd, however, that on the last WOMBAT I got an A, and this is suppose to be the hardest of the three tests. Oh well, congradulations to those who passed as well!!

  • Tia

    Well, I go an A!! I’m pretty happy about that grade since I missed the first two exams and this was the hardest exam. So, I guess I will be working at F & B. lol

  • 7th_horcrux

    i got an T!! … i took it twice, i wanted to get a t. but i actually got an E!!

  • Lindsay

    Well, I finally got around to checking it, and I got an “A”. At least I passed, lol.

  • Cricket

    I shccked myself. I got an EE grade.

  • chloe

    oh its so annoying for some reason my computer wont let me get my results! any one know how i can fix this?
