House Points 1991-1992

Who, When, Why, and How Many…

student: Harry
teacher: Snape
points taken: -1
reason: “cheek”
notes: When asked a question by Snape, who was intentionally provoking him, he responded, “I don’t know. I think Hermione does, though, why don’t you try her?”
ref: PS8

student: Harry
teacher: Snape
points taken: -1
reason: not helping Neville
notes: Ironic, since Snape is also given to taking away points when people do help Neville (see PA7). Neville doesn’t lose any points himself – yet.

points given: + unknown (“all the points”)
reason: knowing about Switching Spells

student: Harry
teacher: Snape
points taken: -5
reason: having a library book out of the castle

ref: PS11

student: Ron
teacher: Snape
points taken: -5

points taken: -20 + detention
reason: out of bed at midnight
ref: PS14
