Hogwarts Mystery: How to Pass Your O.W.L. With Flying Colors


When you reach your fifth year at Hogwarts, all students must take their OWL (Ordinary Wizarding Level) Exams. And this is no exception when it comes to the mobile game, Hogwarts Mystery, inspired by the books and movies of Harry Potter. Instead of these being a chapter in the story mode, it’s a special event that occurs during your fifth year that lasts for about three days. During that time period you need to revise for your exams as well as take them. Now unlike classes it’s more advanced as you’ll have a written portion (questions and answers) and a practical part (focus, timed, and tracing figures). So to help you pass the exams, here is what you might face during the OWL exams as far as the written portion is concerned.

  • The Deflating Draught is used to null the effects of a swelling solution.
