"Advanced ARITHMANCY Studies"
— The subject mentioned on the Marauder's Map[src]

Advanced Arithmancy Studies was presumably Arithmancy for students with particular skill at the subject. It was taught in a classroom in the Hogwarts Turris Magnus.[2]

Advanced Arithmancy Studies was presumably taught by Professor Septima Vector, who taught normal Arithmancy.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The Advanced Arithmancy Studies classroom was seen on the Marauder's Map in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
  • This was possibly a specialised class offered to sixth and seventh year students only.
  • It was also possible that it is not a class of its own at all, but could merely be a term for N.E.W.T.-level Arithmancy classes.
  • Given how normal Arithmancy seems to have to do with basic mathematics, such as Algebra, it's possible that Advanced Arithmancy dealt with higher-level mathematics, such as Calculus.
