I see a class called HOL Owl 2012 or Something on the lines of that. So what I am asking is:

What is an O.W.L or owl?

Thanks :rolleyes:

Ordinary Wizarding Levels (O.W.L) is an exam taken by Fifth Years and above. You don't need to worry about that until your Fifth Year ;)

Great question, Kathryn!

I have one to add since Jenna answered that one for you.

Can you take the O.W.L.'s before 5th year? I have covered more then half the required classes concerning the O.W.L.'s in my first three terms here at Hogwarts. Was just wondering if I would be allowed to do them early if I wanted. :)

Sorry Star but just like the Hogwarts students in the Harry Potter series you'll need to wait until your Fifth Year. :)

To add onto Professor Sully, Students do not sign up for the O.W.L. class, they are added in by the Professor who teaches the class at the proper time.

So no sneaking in! :P

Is it in addition to the 5 classes you are already allowed to take or in that term do you take only 4 classes with the O.W.L. being the 'required' 5th one?

It is in addition to your five classes, so no need to "reserve" a spot for your OWL class :)
