Welcome to the Academics weekly assignment for the week of January 9th, 2022! These weekly assignments will give our Professors the ability to showcase some of their lesson ideas here on the website. Each assignment will be posted for a week, in which everyone will be able to read about the topic and respond to the assignment prompt. This week's assignment is "Magical Events - S.M.U.G. Exams,” created by Kira (KiraTheHouseElf).
The assignment is as follows:
The S.M.U.G. exams, also known as “Super Mundane Unit Grades,” are standardised tests that fifth-year students at Hogsworth are required to take at the end of the school year. It lasts two weeks, which have theory and practical portions. The topics that can be on the exam are specific to subjects. The subjects are Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, History of Magic, Unmagical Studies, Astronomy, Magical Creature Studies, Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, Transfiguration, and Divination.
Achieving a passing grade, such as an E or O, can allow students to take specific classes in the following years. In addition, their grades can help them get into different jobs like becoming an Auralock or a Professor.
Imagine you are taking the S.M.U.G. exams. Which subjects do you excel in? What was the highest grade you achieved on the exam? Which subjects do you regret not studying as much for?
