O.W.L.s Read-a-thon 2018

O.W.L.s Read-a-thon 2018

So, I know it is already halfway through July, but in August Book Roast is organising a N.E.W.T. Read-a-thon in which I would like to participate. But to do so, I need to first finish my O.W.L.s which happened last April already for most people.

This spreadsheet gives you all the information you need about the different subjects you can take and the requirements to pass them. Your final ‘pass or fail’ is decided with this chart:

Pass grades:
Outstanding– sit (and pass) at least 5 OWLs
Exceeded Expectations – sit (and pass) at least 3 OWLs
Acceptable – sit (and pass) at least 2 OWLs

Fail grades:
Poor – sit only one OWL
Dreadful – start but not finish any OWLs tasks
Troll – do not show up at your OWLs examinations

Here are all the subjects and in italics you can see the titles I want to read, if a subject is made bold it means I have completed it.

Ancient Runes – Snow Like Ice by Sara Raasch
Arithmancy – The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
Astronomy – Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston
Care of Magical Creatures – American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Charms – Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch
Defense Against the Dark Arts – The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Divination – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Herbology – The Rose Society by Marie Lu
History of Magic – Things Bright and Beautiful by Anbara Salam
Muggle Studies – Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers by Robert M. Sapolsky
Potions – Everless by Sara Holland
Transfiguration – Borne by Jeff VanderMeer

And next month I will join the N.E.W.T.s Read-a-thon, brrr.
Luckily I have already read quite a few books for this read-a-thon and so I am for sure going to get an Outstanding. I have given myself the goal to join Hermione in the list of people who get eleven O.W.L.s.

If you did your O.W.L.s or are doing them now, let me know in the comments down below.

For now let books enrich your life!
