Head Boy badge

This article covers information about the seventh year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A student in their seventh year at Hogwarts was called a seventh-year (with a hyphen). Seventh-year students were usually seventeen to eighteen years of age.

Overall

The seventh year contained the most important exams given at Hogwarts — the N.E.W.T exam pertaining to each of the subjects, concluding their N.E.W.T.-level studies that they started in their sixth year and continued into the seventh year.[1]

A student in the seventh year would have the same schedule he or she had in the sixth year, and would sit only those classes in which they received the O.W.L. grade needed and decided by the professor for that subject. However, not all students took N.E.W.T.s, as many occupations accepted applicants who only received O.W.L.s.[2] It was likely that specialised subjects only offered from the sixth year would be continued at N.E.W.T. level.

Every year, a male and female seventh-year student were appointed as Head Boy and Head Girl respectively by the Headmaster or Headmistress.[3]

Student programme at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries

Thanks to a special arrangement between Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and various other places around the world, students who had reached this stage of their education were offered the opportunity to explore various wizarding professions first-hand by signing up for an internship programme.[4] Students could seek internship programmes at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries in order to learn how to become Healers.[5][6]

One of these programmes was at the Ministry of Magic in London, and was at one point headed by Amos Diggory of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. As of the 1990–1991 school year, however, this task had instead been given to Wilkie Twycross, from the Department of Magical Transportation.[7][8]
