All first year students at Hogwarts were required to complete a set of examinations to get into the second year. There was one exam for each subject. In 1992, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger tried to balance studying for their exams with worrying about Severus Snape and Voldemort whom they thought were out to steal the Philosopher's Stone.
The Transfiguration exam consisted in transfiguring a being into an object. In 1992, the students had to turn a mouse into a snuff box. Extra points were given for how pretty the snuffbox was, points were taken off if it still had whiskers.
History of Magic
Behind the scenes
- It is curious that Gaspard Shingleton's (born in 1959) achievements are covered so prominently in the History of Magic exam, when it is revealed in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that "Professor Bagshot doesn't cover anything later than the end of the nineteenth century" in A History of Magic, the book by Bathilda Bagshot which is used as the textbook for the subject. This implies that Proffessor Binns covers topics not present in the textbook.
