40 Things You Never Realized About Ron & Hermione
Hermione Took the NEWTS
Although Harry and Ron never took the NEWTS, which are the final exams a wizard takes before entering the adult world, Hermione wasn’t willing to leave her education unfinished. After defeating the most evil wizard of all time, she returned to take the exams in 1998. What’s more, she probably aced them.
Meanwhile, Ron and Harry were willing to coast on the fact that they were famous wizards who had defeated a terrible enemy. Which, I mean, fair enough. It’s not like fighting Voldemort didn’t prove their proficiency as wizards. Hermione wanted a grade to be sure she was all set, though.
