Applying to Hogwarts?

19th August, 2015

A high school graduate attempted to apply to Hogwarts University of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


His imagination obviously got the better of him and he was declined entry… because it doesn’t exist.

The admissions office responded to the prospective student’s application letter which stated he would like to enroll in ‘Wandology’. He further stated his expertise in “wearing a pointy hat” and “Watching Paul Daniels TV Specials”…

The response he received was magical! Okay, not magical, but funny.

"We regret to inform you that your application to the stated establishment cannot be processed at this time due to the fact that it does not exist.

After consultation with our mystic advisors we have also determined that even if it did exist, the course 'Wandology' would be highly in demand and hence require at least two As and a B in any of the following subjects:

  • Advanced Spellcrafting
  • Mystimatics
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts
  • History of the Occult
  • Shaft Design

Your hand written grade sheet claiming top marks in 'Waving a stick about', 'Wearing a pointy hat' and 'Watching Paul Daniels TV Specials' sadly is not suitable for submission, however by applying through clearing you may be suitable for a selection of Liberal Arts courses.

Alternatively you may wish to resubmit next year by tying your letter to an owl and hoping for the best.
