Notes and references
- ↑ According to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 9 (The Woes of Mrs Weasley), Molly Weasley noted when Ron became Prefect "That’s everyone in the family!" Prefects at Hogwarts are chosen in their fifth year. Bill started attending Hogwarts in 1982 and would have started his fifth year in the 1986-1987 school year. Therefore, he became Prefect in 1986

- ↑ According to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Chapter 17 (The Man with Two Faces), Slytherin would have won the House Cup for "the seventh year in a row". It was stated in the 1991-1992 school year, meaning they had won it every year since the 1985-1986 school year
- ↑ Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Chapter 11 (Quidditch) stated Flint was a sixth year. He should have left in 1993 except he appeared in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Rowling later stated on her website that Flint had to retake the exams he failed and so had to stay another year, graduating in 1994 instead
