The W.O.M.B.A.T.s, unlike the O.W.L.s, consist exclusively of written papers. Therefore W.O.M.B.A.T.s could be sat by Muggles as well as wizards, although the Wizarding Examinations Authority does not believe that any Muggle would have the degree of inner-knowledge required to achieve a pass.

The Grade 1 W.O.M.B.A.T. tests whether the sitter would be able to exist safely and effectively within the magical world. Would you know what to befriend/avoid in the magical Natural World? Could you use Everyday Magic to look after yourself and your family? And would you know how to Transport yourself within the world of wizards?

This is not a straightforward Harry Potter trivia test. While a thorough knowledge of the books is essential to achieving a good grade at W.O.M.B.A.T., you will need inspiration as well as information, applying what you know, whether by deducing the correct answer or by making intelligent guesses.

If you would like to sit the W.O.M.B.AT, you will need 25 minutes.

It will take a few days for the Ministry to mark your test, after which the delivery owl will reveal your result in the form of a printed certificate.

Good luck.
