References from the canon
- Cheering Charms were part of the Charms curriculum for the third-years. They were included in the final exam for that term (PA15).
- Cheering Charms were part of the written Charms O.W.L. exam. Hermione worried that she hadn't written enough about them, but since she was considering including the counter-charm for hiccups as part of her answer, it seems likely that she wrote more than plenty (OP31).
